How would you define prison violence? How does violence influence prison management strategies and administration issues? What recommendations might you make to address increasing violence and the various forms of violence in state and federal prisons?
Weegy: Every year, more than 13 million people enter U.S. [ prisons and jails, and 95 percent of them will eventually be released -- sometimes angrier and more violent than they were when they were incarcerated. Making prisons safer isn't just a matter of simple humanity, it's a matter of public safety, prison officials and state and federal authorities say. Congress will hold a hearing Thursday on prison violence and abuse. A congressional panel will hear from prison reformers -- both liberal and conservative -- who cite a new report from the National Prison Commission that contends "what happens inside jails and prisons does not stay inside jails and prisons."

How do special needs, mentally ill, and substance abuse prisoners affect the jail and prison systems at both state and federal levels? What might happen if these prisoner populations were not cared for properly?
Weegy: Prisoner “needs” are related to risk in that there are some individual treatment or rehabilitative attributes that are known to be associated with risk of further involvement in crime. [ These would include education level, employment-related skills, mental illness, substance abuse, and family relationships. The State and the Federal levels are having a difficult time funding and determining the needs of the mentally ill who are incarcerated. If they are not cared for properly, their mental and physical state will worsen. They will then become a bigger burden to society financially. This is my personal opinion. ] (More)

I feel that the most prominent reason that a person participates in delinquent acts is to impress other people. If a juvenile wants to become part of a group, then they will do just about anything to try an fit in with the rest of the crowd. For example, let's say that there is a group of kids that sneak out of their houses at night and go running around the neighborhood. If there is another kid that wants to be a part of that group, they will then sneak out of their house to join in, even ...
Weegy: Experts in the field of crime and delinquency are concerned about the high rate of juvenile participation in illegal activity. [ They realize that a variety of problems help to account for why so many young people break laws and exhibit destructive behaviors. Most experts agree that difficulties within the family are a root cause of childhood behavioral problems: separation and divorce, domestic violence, abuse and neglect. They also note the many social problems that can influence antisocial behaviors: peer pressure, poverty and escapism through alcohol and other drugs. The issue is not only determining the causes of juvenile delinquency, but also discovering how to prevent it and reduce its negative affect on young people and society. ] (More)
