2. Some prisons are now being run on a “for-profit” basis. Do you think that this is a good or bad idea? Why? I think it is a good idea because that way there could be more rehab programs and also more classes so that when they get out of jail they can adapt easily to the outside world again. 3. Do you think that any of the current punishments deter or reduce crime? Why or why not? Which punishment do you think is most likely to reduce crime in society? Yes I do think some of the current punishments do deter crime because people can see that not everything is good when you’re in jail and when you’re out. The punishment I think is the most effective is jail time because even if you did something minor there are people in there who did worse things and you have to live with those people for however long you’re in there. 4. Which alternative sanction do you think is best? Why? The alternative sanction I think is best is probation because that way the offender is no dependent of the state but of his family and he has the opportunity to show the police he can do it in his own. 5. If you had to reform the system of punishments and corrections, what would you do? Why? I would create more rehabs and more ways to help them so when they get out of jail and also give them advice so that they can sustain a life by themselves. I would give them skills so that they don’t commit crime in the future. Discussion Questions Please post questions and answers on the UNIT EIGHT discussion boards.
