most respected by the inmates. I just did not see that at the academy when they were reporting on the last Friday’s meal that didn’t happen because they were at home and couldn’t change it because they had not pens. Part 5: The First amendment safeguards the right to speak and act freely, It stopped the prison from stopping the inmate mail but also allows them to provide different outlets in the case of security and safety needs. This would be in place so that the inmates would not lose their legal mail and not have a chance to get out of prison while challenging Habeas Corpus. The 4 th amendment deals with privacy which according to the text the prisoners give up. The amendment would take away any chance that corrections would have to protect the inmates while in prison. If the prisoners had a right to privacy they could be killed by other inmates with- out the guards looking over them. The 8 th amendment deals with reasonable bail and makes sure that cruel and unusual punishment does not happen to the inmates this is key because of the atrocities that used to be done to

inmates in prison. This protects the inmates from guards and other inmates or having to do something in humane. The 14 th amendment protects American citizens it gives them procedural rights and protection. The Amendment comes into play when inmates are trying to be released from on parole and interprison transfers. It also provided a guideline for the due process of inmates facing disciplinary proceedings. This made sure that the inmate would have his day in court sort of when he is reviewed by the disciplinary board. The Prison Litigation act of 1995 stopped all the frivolous lawsuits, it was a screening mechanism that eliminated the cases that were frivolous or had no merit. It limited the inmates inability to file Lawsuits, Require inmates to exhaust all available administrative remedies prior to filing suits, it required inmates to pay for filing fees in some cases. It punished inmates for frivolous cases. If the inmate won they would have to pay their restitution in other cases. The 6 th amendment does not get mentioned because it is a right I feel inmates give up when they come to prison. Could you imagine a Lifer who is constantly in court tying up our courts because of the crimes he has committed behind bars. These inmates could really clog the system and for what a little entertainment. Sorry I am 15 minutes late on this assignment I was on a flight from Los Angeles to Tampa and I had to stow my computer before I was done but now that I am at the Airport and landed, I am turning it in.

    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.
