Pick a side
Now that you’ve thoroughly examined both sides if the Prison Overcrowding Problem, it’s time to pick a side.
At this juncture and based one what you’ve learned through your research on the topic, you need to decide what you think would work best to alleviate the prison overcrowding problem. You’ll need to focus your attention on THREE ways in which to address the problem. So for instance, you may argue that 1.) building more prisons; 2.) legalizing certain drugs; and 3.) improving alternative sentencing options may be the best way to address the problem. Or perhaps you might choose, 1.) longer mandatory sentencing to increase the deterrent effect; 2. ) prison reform so that it’s not such a “pleasurable” experience; and 3.) privatizing the prison system.
