After watching (Prison Systems) the video assigned for this week (Gladiator Days), write your Discussion Board post on the following questions: 1. Who are the inmates in our prisons across the nation? In other words, what are the demographics of our prison inmates? Basic information is more than sufficient for this response. You do not need to include exact statistics, etc. Just let us know the types of people housed in prisons. Are they after being “booked” by the police as they await their arraignment? Are they on death row? Who are our inmates in prisons? 2. After reviewing all of that information and viewing the video for this week (Gladiator Days), comment on the following: Why is understanding an agency/department mission important and what is the mission of any (state or Federal is ok with me) prison in the United States? You are free to choose and look up any prison mission statement, which is very easy to locate when you look up a prison website.
What are the basics of how inmate security classification works? Do you believe the staff in the Gladiator Days accurately classified the inmates we see in that video (the violent ones, not the ones just standing around doing nothing)? Why or why not? What is the architecture style of the prison unit we see in the video, Gladiator Days? Do you believe any of the other architecture styles would have been safer than what we saw in the stabbing incident in Gladiator Days? Why or why not?
Please comment on anything else that relates to the chapter and video, if you feel it’s appropriate to include in your discussion.
