CJS 235 WK 3 Discussion
WK 3 Discussion – Prisoner Protection [due Thurs]
Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words:
- As the laws for people in the United States change, do our prison communities also need to evolve so we are providing humane living conditions as defined in our U.S. Constitution?
- Put yourself in the position of an incarcerated victim. Would being victimized in prison make you more likely to continue being a victim or would you use other coping strategies? What are the consequences of prison victimization?
- How has federal legislation, such as the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA), addressed violence and victimization within correctional facilities at the federal, state, and local levels of jurisdiction?
