had determined release dates would do years in the County Jails. What happened as an outcome was anyone who was doing a County Lid (1 year) or 6 months ended up doing hours on some sentences and a few days on others. One man was sentenced in the morning to 90 days by the judge at 9 a.m. then taken back to the County Jail and released after serving 138 minutes. He laughed and pointed at the judge who then held him in contempt for 28 days. On the other end of realignment are the men who are doing 30 to 40 years in the county jail with half time. This puts officers in danger because if you are sentenced to 30 years in the county jail and are looking at 15 straight years in that place, why not throw piss on an officer or beat the hell out of them to get upstate for a violent offense. Plus, personally realignment to away the rehabilitation at a county jail level for 5 or 6 years and we are still recovering from that.

Part 3: For a Level 6 on the Crime Seriousness Scale and who has 1 prior person-to-person crime felony conviction. The Sentence is 15 to 18 months for a person who has one or more adult conviction or juvenile adjudication for a non-person felony and 13 to 14 months for a person who has no adult conviction or juvenile adjudications for a non-person felony. Part 4: A Block at Sing –Sing like B block are the most impressive buildings there in a totally negative sense. The size catches first time visitors by surprise. A Block is 588 feet long it houses 684 inmates which is more than the entire prison at some prisons. You hear nothing but radios, and heavy gates slamming along with shouts and whistles but at first you cannot see a single incarcerated soul. The gallery is 88 cells long. The basic subjects are all subjects of strength like getting through obstacle courses and never disobeying orders. They taught corrections officers the rule book and also the other rules which would save their lives. They also taught how to subdue an inmate. Conover talks about how you talk to inmates and what to do when you are talking to an inmate. I think a lot of what he says he learned, being on the block was simple if you wanted respect at some point you have to interact with the inmate. I think the academy didn’t focus on the inmates as anything but animals with the tear gas bonding they taught the officers to do things that most men wouldn’t do. I think that is the key of this lesson that most of the time what was expected of the officers was not done out of chance these men were taught in the academy to follow orders and have their brothers back no matter what. I think the officers Conover really talked with the best control of the inmate population, really understood how to talk to them and they were the most respected by the inmates. I just did not see that at the academy when they were reporting on

    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.
