Our prison system in the system in the United States may be one of the cleanest and most hygienic in the world, but other conditions are deplorable, and something needs to be done. Our government has a responsibility to protect its citizens, even if they are criminals. Our prisons in the United States are among the most populated and even the most dangerous in the entire world. The United States government can help fix this problem in a number of ways. They need to take responsibility and allocate funds more efficiently, improving areas that need improvement, and cutting back on the areas that have more slack. By improving the conditions in our jails, we will be able to slow the rate of deaths and sexual assault in our jail system. In 1995, our prison system held upwards of 1,400,000 males, and added 4,000,000 every year (Donaldson 1). This same study found that more than three-hundred-thousand males were sexually assaulted behind bars every year, and it is estimated that 60,000 prisoners are subjected to involuntary sex every day (Donaldson 1). In 1999, more than thirty-four-thousand assaults were committed by prisoners against other inmates in a twelve-month period, 27% higher than the previous twelve months (Smith 1). These horrible conditions in our jail system are becoming worse and worse, and immediate action needs to be taken by our government. In 2006, our government spent $68,747,203,000 on corrections in our prison system (Bureau 1), and yet our prisons are…
Composition I ENC1101
Music is simply something I cannot live without. I wake up to music every morning when the clock hits a set time, I listen to music as I am preparing myself for the day, I listen to it to and from work; it is just something that I have to have. Whether it is the sounds of the banjo, the strum of the guitar, or the story of the song; country music, and the band Alabama, have a special place in my heart. I grew up in Georgia, and being from the…
Does prison reduce reoffending?
For most of history, imprisoning has not been a punishment in itself, but rather a way to confine criminals until corporal or capital punishment was administered. Only in the 19th century, beginning in Britain, did prisons as known today become commonplace. The modern prison system was born in London. The notion of prisoners being incarcerated as part of their punishment and not simply as a holding state until trial or hanging was at the time revolutionary. This…
The first of these public boot camps was set up in Oklahoma and Georgia in 1983. The Georgia program was a two-part program consisting of a rigorous 90-day tour in a prison boot camp followed by a less structured period of
community supervision. The program was designed as an alternative to
prison, and participation was mandated by the sentencing judge as a
condition of probation.
Oklahoma had 4 separate boot camp programs within the state, with an overall capacity of 446…
disc.) Eighty minute CD's were not even available yet. The people that worked with me started using Ahead's Nero and Adaptec's Easy CD Creator to make our own music discs and compilation CD's from music that we had of own store-bought CDs. Only a few months down the road, Napster Beta versions had made its way to the internet and we were in heaven over this program. Napster was a peer-to-peer file sharing program that had what seemed like an endless supply of mp3s. After using Napster for quite some…

American Prison System and the novel Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption.
A prison is an institution for the confinement of persons convicted of criminal offenses. Nelson Mandela once said “When a man is denied the right to live the life he believes in, he has no choice but to become an outlaw.” The prison system has been a way to keep violent criminals away from society and should also help to reform convicts and enable them to reintegrate into society. It may be true that prisons exist for…
Employee of the Month
After watching “Employee of the Month,” it was clear to see that there were two main issues. These issues were motivation and ethics and they both came up throughout the entire movie.
It was almost immediately shown that moviation was an issue at the Super Club (where they all work) with almost all of the employees, each seemingly being motivated in a different manor. Since the main protagonist of the movie was Zack (played by Dane Cook), an in-depth look at how his…
"Its not easy to stand alone against the ridicule of others". Twelve Angry Men is more than a play, it is a reminder of our social responsibility. Discuss.

The didactic play presents a cross section, examining 1950's America during a period of immense suspicion and uncertainty. Roses' play reminds us of the importance of responsibility and integrity, emphasising qualities such as courage…
