It is very simple understood, the more prisons built and the more prisoners in them, the more profit they make. “Silverstein writes that corners are cut in every possible way and drug rehabilitation, counseling, and literacy programs often fall by the wayside”(“Prisons - Punishment For Profit”). This is a way to maximize profits for these private prisons. Though private prison companies take most of the heat and abuse from their critics, it is not just private prison companies who are looking for a piece of the prison profits. Telephone companies, for example, contract with states to supply phone service to prisons in exchange for a share of the profits.
This classification makes sense because if crime is caused by terrorists; terrorist will cause crimes. If the majority of minorities are in prisons, then people of color will end up in prison. On the opposing side of racial profiling, many minorities feel that it is a form of racial discrimination that only hurts the good image law enforcement upholds. For example, the California Highway Patrol has recently been taken to court for the misuse of racial profiling. Therefore, a compromise must be made because it would be ideological to believe that there can be a government that bans the use of racial identification.
These allow the Police officers to disable the violent of dangerous suspects, without having to use a lethal method of force. The armed Police would not shoot to wound, they would shoot to kill, and keep in mind that we still want the criminals to go to court of potentially jail for what they have done. The heartbreaking event of the two Police officers from Manchester Police force was a terrible event. The officers thought that they were going to a routine 999 call of someone's window being broken in, this all changed when a heavily armed, violent man turned up with a gun threatening to shoot both of them. That's exactly what
For example, when the girl is trampled by Hyde, his punishment is decided by Mr Enfield and a Doctor, who are both well respected members of society. Also after Carew is beaten to death by Hyde, it is the police who come to Utterson for help and understanding about the case. This shows us the relationship of society where the more wealth and education you have the more powerful you are. This aspect of relationships in society is one that has not really changed over time. Similarly in ‘Batman’ the police have trouble bringing criminals to justice because of the influence powerful mob bosses have in society.
It does allow flexibility to the courts or judge, this a one size fits all law, three strikes and its an automatic 25 to life sentence. Victimless crimes, criminals who found away to turn it around but got caught just being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and a 18 year old who has yet to mature to make right decisions, all can be can fall on the bad side of the 3 strikes law that will get them 25 to life sentencing for something doesn’t deserve such penalty. The law adds way more criminals to an already crowded prison system. Plea bargaining ads a conviction to your record, trials are very expensive and defense attorneys use this to avoid such time on non-costly
Carter 1 James Carter Courtney Sullivan ENG 110.92 22 April 2012 Should the Death Penalty be Allowed? Many people argue that, the death penalty is justifiable and some argue it down right cruel. According to this website www.procon.org, more than 1,188 inmates were executed from 1977 to 2009 by lethal injection. Most death penalty cases involve the execution of murderers, although capital punishment can also be applied for treason, espionage, terrorist and other crimes. Many say the death penalty is of value because it preserves the law, keeps down crime, and it cost less to house prisoners, it honors the victims and grieving families and it will stop crime.
This, a system founded upon the principal of rehabilitation, yet in reality, is more interested in imprisoning non-violent criminals indefinitely than providing them the help so desperately needed. It sickens me that the United States allows for such a horrible thing. Private prisons in the United States make millions of dollars off of their own prisoners. It is simple, the more prisoners the prisons have the more money they make. Private prisons enjoy a guaranteed profit with every inmate they house.
Profit, of course, is a major motive with social control another. The social implications of the prison-industrial complex are profound, and indicate the direction the United States is taking to solve its social problems. The result, however, is not the solving of social problems with better health care, education and services for people, but the growth of a new big business, the prison industry. The dominate sector of society benefits from the creation of the prison industry. According to “Campus Activism Defeats Multinational's Prison Profiteering,” and “Steel Town Lockdown,” correctional centers run by Corrections Corporation of America, makes a lot of money locking up convicted criminals.
DNA evidence, available in less than ten percent of all homicides, cannot guarantee that we won’t execute innocent people (ACLUNC, 2013). If someone is convicted and later found to be innocent, you can release him from prison, but not bring them back from death. Others further argue that the death penalty isn't reserved for the worst crimes, but for defendants with the worst lawyers. It simply doesn't apply to people with money. Life without parole costs less than the death penalty (Marceau & Whitson, 2013).
One way to really see how high the illegal crime rate is would be to look inside of the United Stated penitentiary system to see how many illegals are serving sentences for vicious crimes they have committed. Illegals committing crime in the United States may not seem to interest you or bother you but with the illegals rate being so high, and their crime rate being high as well means more expenses for police to apprehend these criminals as well as feed them in the prisons, which eventually
