INCARCERATION RATE IN THE UNITED STATES 2 Incarceration Rate in the United States The incarceration rates in the United States of America have significantly increase over the last three decades. The growing increase in incareceration rates in mainly attributed towards the lack of proper reforms in the criminal justice system given its political inclination. This has raised significant concerns regarding the mushrooming populations of incarcerated individuals besides the socioeconomic and racial disparities that come with the criminal convictions. Reports reveal that crime and the growing incarceration rates are significantly expensive for the taxpayers as place significantly conrtaints on the public budget. Punishments, with precision to incarceration remains an aspect that is equally costly for the offenders as it significantly reduces the level of attachment between the perpertators of herenous crimes and their family members as well as the community. Several measures have been construed with the cardinal intent of reducing the growing recividism rates. Given this, one of the significant measures placed by the criminal justice system lies in the incarceration of the offenders for life, an approach that criminologists have often inferred to as incapacitation. This approach as adduced in the views of varied reseach studies is significantly costly as it significantly decreases the labor markets productivity, affects the well-being of the family, and increases the publics budget.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
