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 is academic failure related to delinquency? Do delinquents fail at school or is academic failure responsible for delinquency? Explain your answers.
Weegy: School failure is related to delinquency in many different ways. One way comes through incompetent parents and administrators. [ When a child is more afraid of a gang than he is afraid of the consequences of not doing his homework or even going to school, he will fail. His failure is not due to his own delinquency but to that of other children. The solution would be for his parents to raise hell with the school board and have the incompetent administrator replaced for not making the way safe to school. If the school board refused to act, have the parent see a lawyer. An incompetent parent fails to act. Then there is the delinquent kid who refuses to do his own work. Poor academic performance for some children may lead to low self-esteem which may lead to truancy and dropping out of school. This, in turn, may lead to the formation of a gang to regain a sense of self-esteem. 2. Some neighborhood schools are failing in their effort to educate and socialize students which may result in a child's rejection of school and the formation of a gang as a mechanism for filling time, acting out against the school, acquiring skills needed to make money, and building self-esteem. 3. School failure and delinquency are the result of another issue - problem behavior syndrome (low IQ - Intelligence Quotient, turbulent family life, low self-control and impulsivity, drug use, depression, malnutrition, abuse, and disease). (Siegel and Senna, 1997, p. 365, italics added for clarity) Gangs may form when children with this syndrome are brought together or seek one another out as a support group. ] (More)

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)
