HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE THE PRISON ENVIROMENT? hOW DOES THE PRISON ENIVRONMENT INFLUENCE INSTITUTIONAL MANAGEMENT AND CUSTODY? wHAT CHANGES TO PRISON ENVIROMENTS WOULD IMPROVE INSTITUTIONAL MANAGEMENT?
Prisons are not good places in which to live. Most people in prison, if they had a choice, would never choose to live in prison. [ [ Not only are they bad neighborhoods filled with troubled and troublesome inmates; but the inmates cannot choose who they must live with in very small and crowded places, especially when they must share cells with other people. Some of the people who they share
quarters with are good people who are friendly, kind, and easy to get along with. Lasting friendships are made in prison. However, some of the people who an inmate will be called upon to live with are selfish, dishonest, unfriendly and even dangerous. Prisoners who spend many years in prison will experience having to live in close quarters with this type of prisoner, at some time during their incarceration. There is also a lot of tension in prison life; because prisoners are aware of other prisoners closely observing them; looking for ways to take advantage of them. They live under stressful circumstances, and this takes its toll on them mentally and physically. Not to be ignored are the strip searches which occur frequently in maximum-security prisons. These searches not only limit the ability of prisoners to conceal weapons or other contraband; but they keep reminding the prisoner that he is powerless, and must obey authority as long as he is in prison. ] ]

What is sentencing? How does sentencing influence corrections? How can corrections professionals improve sentencing so that it improves the correctional system overall?
Weegy: In law, a sentence forms the final explicit act of a judge-ruled process, and also the symbolic principal act connected to his function. [ The sentence can generally involve a decree of imprisonment, a fine and/or other punishments against a defendant convicted of a crime. Those imprisoned for multiple crimes, will serve a consecutive sentence (in which the period of imprisonment equals the sum of all the sentences), a concurrent sentence (in which the period of imprisonment equals the length of the longest sentence), or somewhere in between, sometimes subject to a cap. If a sentence gets reduced to a less harsh punishment, then the sentence is said to have been "mitigated". Rarely (depending on circumstances) murder charges are "mitigated" and reduced to manslaughter charges. However, in certain legal systems, a defendant may be punished beyond the terms of the sentence, e.g. social stigma, loss of governmental benefits, or, collectively, the collateral consequences of criminal charges. ] (More)

What is more important—freedom of press to publish pictures and names of juvenile offenders or juveniles’ rights to private court proceedings? Explain your answer.
Weegy: This type of question is very open ended and every individual will have their own opinion and answer. [ My opinion is that juveniles' rights should be protected, as they are not yet adults and while they should be held accountable for their actions and punished accordingly, I do not think that it is the public's business. Some minors may not yet fully grasp right and wrong and while many may, there are still a smaller group that do not and as the rules cannot be applied to only certain juveniles, I think the law must apply to all. I think it is the Government's responsibility to protect minors and their privacy. For example, a child may steal a loaf of bread, because his family has no money to feed him. As a minor, this child is not making a decision to be in this situation and has no way to get out of it and while stealing is wrong, you can see how it is completely different than an adult doing the same thing, as an adult has the option of going to a food bank and a child does not know about those (or one would assume). I fully support protecting the right of juvenile offenders. ] (More)

I think that it really depends on the crime, if the juvenile has committed murder or rape then yes the crime and the information of the juvenile should be on the news. I think in some case the juvenile may think its cool and they want to see them self's on the news and in the papers. But when it comes to them committing murder or rape I think that the public should know what they did and who they are so that they can be on the look out for them, because I know that I wouldn't want my child to ...
Weegy: I can definitely see what you are saying. [ If there were a way to specify when a juvenile's court proceedings and crimes were made public, I would tend to agree that any who have committed rape or murder should be treated as an adult and such, as I feel it is doing the community a disservice by not making them aware of the crimes and who committed them. For more minor crimes however, I feel the juvenile should be protected entirely. ] (More)

I think it's 50/50 on that seeing how some people are nosey and want to know everyone busyness, but at the same time I know that I would want to know mainly to protect my self and family. I really don't think that juveniles should have rights if they commit a capital crime like murder. Taking someone's life is not like taking a CD from a store and I feel that most teen's know what murder is so there is no reason them to think they can kill someone and get away with it. I also think that kids ...
Weegy: I think officials are thinking that juvenile delinquents should be given a chance to change themselves. [ Nobody is born a delinquent it just happens that they werent so lucky with the people and the environment that they grew up on but I still think that you have a point, considering that they are still the one's who made their choices in life. Is there anything that you would like to ask weegy? ] (More)
