The Sentencing Process and the Problem of Prison

From the first e-Activity, examine the extent to which the sentences the defendants in each case received were appropriate for the offenses they committed. Debate the degree to which corporal punishment is an effective form of sentencing when given in conjunction with a prison term. Provide support for your rationale.

From the second e-Activity, imagine you are a warden in prison, and you have been tasked with deciding the most appropriate way to allocate funds. Choose the one (1) issue that you would distribute the most resources toward in order to combat the findings from the Commission on Safety and Abuse in America’s Prison’s report on the United States’ correctional system. Classify one (1) advantage and one (1) disadvantage to deciding to allocate the most resources toward the issue you have chosen. Provide support for your rationale.


This world has a lot going on to be focused on drug possession, fraud and theft crime.. The defendant was punished by having to serve 8 years in prison and 10 strokes for possion of cannabis (marijuana ). I do think that the punishment for this crime was a little outragious. I think that making him serve the 8 years in prison was enough. I don’t think anyone should receive strokes as a punishment unless that have done seriously body harm to someone. The three men who brutally raped a mother of seven were sentenced to 28 years in jail each and ordered to be whipped a total of 48 times was not enough punishment for them. The reason being is because, that was a mother of 7 if they would have killed her or made her incapable of taking care of her children, who is going to take care of them. I am not saying this only because she is a mother, but for the simple fact i know that getting raped by 3 men could cause so much harm to anyone mentally and emotionally. They went to the extreme so why not go to the extreme with them. I think they should have gotten life in prison right along with some whips. I think they should get whipped for the remainder of the time they are in prison. When it comes to crimes like this, I wish someone could return the favor to them.

If I was the warden of a prison, I would try to fix all of our major issues then work my way down to the petty issues. I would try to fix the environment in the prison, the plumbing, the heater or air conditioner, the vents, and the sleeping areas. I know all of these issues would cost the facility a lot of money so I would have to focus more on the plumbing. I would make sure that the inmates have clean hot and cold water to take a shower or wash their hands. Maintaing a clean higene could eliminate gems within the facility. A disadvantage would be when they get out the shower and go to bed they could sweat and get back dirty or they can catch a cold in the winter time.
