Although maybe extreme, this description is not far from the lives of many inmates housed in solitary confinement all over the world. With little or no contact with other humans, the prisoners are forced to live days and even up to 20 years without interaction or external stimuli in their environment. As humans are social creatures (Baumeister & Bushman, 2008), this lack of stimuli often has negative psychological consequences (Louw & O’Brien, 2007) including suicide, depression, chronophobia and Ganser syndrome. These negative psychological effects are the result of lack of human interaction and external stimuli.

Though the offender has no help in seeking treatment for what he has done and if incarceration was a long sentence, there is nothing in place to help the offender reintegrate back into the community. So this model would help with the discipline part of the sentence but not correct the problem or help with any treatment process of the sentence. There is no rehabilitation to this model to help reform the offender instead of just “looking him up and throwing the keys away.” The community/crime control model would best suit this juvenile offender in this case. These models of punishment would better suit the offender because it would allow the offender to be reintegrated back into the community after the offender’s incarceration and rehabilitation term has expired.
