“these Sheriffs” will disrespect an inmate and get away with it because that inmate is going home or has a “date” for release. Upstate (this is what prison is referred as in California) some of these guys are lifers and the prison is their home, and if one of these guards disrespects them then that guard could have very dire consequences. I always must ask myself what prison does for these men. They seem to love it. Now, I fully understand what prison does for the people these men could hurt that are in society and why they have been taken away from society. I just here the love and adoration these men have for prison compared for county jail in the way they talk about it. The Commissary list is better, the guards are better, the time out of the cells are better, they get conjugal visits if they are married and are good. I guess I just don’t get it. They talk of prison like I talk about going to Dodger Stadium or Safeco Field.

Question 2: In 2013, the Oregon Legislature passed House Bill 3194 which was subsequently signed into law by the Governor. The goal of this legislation is to manage prison populations, and provide inmates with greater opportunities for successful community reintegration. A summary of that bill is available via link in the Corrections News Topics section on the main course page. Please provide a bulleted list of the main components of this bill. Commitment to investing in local public safety infrastructure will ensure that the State of Oregon continues to focus prison resources on violent offenders while protecting the public and holding all offenders accountable implementing evidence-based community supervision practices that are cost-effective and reduce recidivism increasing investments in local law enforcement agencies, community correction agencies, victims’ services and specialty courts will provide local communities with the resources necessary to hold offenders accountable and reduce future criminal conduct State of Oregon can maintain an effective and sustainable public safety system by directing savings that result from averted prison growth toward investments in our local communities allow the Seventy-Seventh Legislative Assembly to invest in our local communities by upgrading our existing local public safety infrastructure future savings resulting from the passage of this 2013 Act must continue to be invested in our local public safety systems Marijuana laws are laxer than before the bill. Criminal Driving while suspended or revoked is now a misdemeanor so no person convicted of this can go to state prison. Aggravated Theft or Burglary in the first degree carries a presumptive sentence of 24 months, unless the person has a previous conviction and will serve a longer sentence The repeal of ORS 475.933 by section 9 of this 2013 Act applies to sentences imposed on or after August 1, 2013.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
