Brooke FusonJun 26, 2022 at 9:41 PMHello Classmates and Professor,Part 1: Provide an example of this idea when incarcerated personsâ€™ constitutional rights may be restricted for a legitimate jail function. Is it fair that incarcerated personsâ€™ rights may be restricted by prison administrators? Why or why not? When we all think of this we all think of “The First Amendment provides that Congress make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting its free exercise. It protects freedom of speech, the press, assembly, and the right to petition the Government for a redress of grievances” (Unknown,2020). Which really all makes us feel all safe when we think about it. However, the inmates also deserve to feel unsafe also. Â “The ultimate goal of this provision is to protect peopleâ€™s right to privacy and freedom from unreasonable intrusions by the government. However, the Fourth Amendment does not guarantee protection from all searches and seizures, but only those done by the government and deemed unreasonable under the law.” (legal information institute n.d.). I am sorry, but I think that everyone deserves a right to a second chance. Unfortunately, once you become an inmate you are subject to searches. That mean searches for everything. Part 2: Define the difference between jail and prison. Discuss a criminal justice issue that relates to punishment, rehabilitation, supervision, or treatment. In addition, explain how the criminal justice issue relates to a social justice issue.When I think of jail and prison I think of short term and long term. Jail being short term being for a holding placement, unless they have warrants or a bigger risk. Jails are designed to temporarily house two types of people: pretrial detainees and sentenced offenders. Pretrial detainees are awaiting a criminal trial and have not been convicted; sentenced offenders, meanwhile, have been sentenced to time in jail (usually for less than 1 year) as a punishment (Stojkovic, S., & Lovell, R. 2019 A prison will offer more as fare as more as far as treatment as psychiatrist, counseling, medical, or anything as such.
Jinara OterorodriguezJun 25, 2022 at 11:26 PMHi Class, It is understood that being sentenced in prison includes specific rights being restricted for the safety of the inmates and other staff in the prison. One situation where the prison has restricted constitutional rights to support the function of the prison deals with the Fourth Amendment, which protects against unreasonable search and seizure. Â This decision was passed in the case of Hudson v. Palmer, where â€œthe Supreme Court decided that prisoners do not have a reasonable expectation of privacy as to their cells or possessions and therefore have no Fourth Amendment protection against searches and seizures in their cellsâ€ (Carter, 2019). I believe this is a legitimate decision, because it is not uncommon for prisoners to attempt to smuggle illegal weapons into prison cells, which could put the safety of everyone in the prison at risk. Allowing for officers to search prison cells can potentially aid in the confiscation of illegal contraband, which could then make a prison more secure. Part 2: Although the terms jail and prison are often used by some interchangeably, it is important to understand the difference between the two. Jails are designed to temporarily hold people, such as people who are awaiting trial or people who have committed minor crimes, such as petty theft, trespassing, or public intoxication. On the other hand, prisons tend to hold inmates who have lengthier sentences and felony charges, such as murder, robbery, or rape. When discussing social justice issues among correctional facilities, it is crucial to consider rehabilitation. Rehabilitation is a staple aspect of our criminal justice system, but it is widely known that most prisons lack the essential resources to even aid prisoners in their efforts towards rehabilitation. It is critical that our prison systems seek to operate in a way that can lower recidivism rates, and rehabilitation is a crucial tool that could support those efforts.
Dani DecarloJun 21, 2022 at 1:57 PMSelect a Tweet and explain how its content relates to a social justice issue and a criminal justice issue in state corrections.I chose to write about the New York State Department of Corrections. Upon searching, I noticed there were a lot of positive posts about awards, as well as memorial services. One social justice issue was regarding homeless veterans. They had raised money for the Adirondack Vets House. This program allows people to help veterans obtain food and furniture, as well as mental services that are needed (NYS DOCCS, 2022).There was another post regarding social media posts. A soon-to-be-former employee was caught posting disrespectful comments about a lost life. They suspended the individual without pay, and was working to terminate the employee (NYS DOCCS, 2022). Not only does this show that they take the lives of their inmates very seriously, but they hold their employees to a high standard as well.
Ashley AmesJun 23, 2022 at 8:06 AMHello Everyone, Â The tweet that I will be targeting in this discussion is by Brian Sterling, in which he identifies contraband found in the South Caroline Department of Corrections Lieber CI. This is an issue that we have both in our correctional facilities and intuitions as well as in the communities. This is both criminal justice and a social justice issue that has been a constant battle on addiction and distribution. When it comes to the criminal justice system, it is more of an obstacle and a challenge to be able to consume contraband than it is when one is in the community. According to Stojkovic and Lovell (2019), the courts ruled that institutions need for safety and security, especially in regards to smuggling contraband which precedents over an individualâ€™s right to privacy (Stojkovic, S. & Lovell, R (2019) 3.4). The real fight here is knowing the right tactics and direction to go when it comes to drug issues and crimes that are broadly noticeable in the United States and other countries. Do you think that there will ever be a way to limit the issues or crimes that we have when it comes to drugs in the U.S? If so, what do you think would work moving forward in making a change?Reference
