My name is Chris Bush and I’m studying criminal justice at the University of Maryland and I’ve studied at a two year college before coming here. Criminal Justice interests me greatly and there are so many aspects of it that can be simplified into smaller categories and studied at a finer level. One thing that is very important is looking at the Prison system in the United States. Many people are being held in prison for petty crimes and others are not being treated the proper way in prison. Prisoners can take up a large sum of our tax dollars to incarcerate them for the duration of their sentence. There needs to be a cheaper alternative to this. There are also people that suffer from mental illness’ in prison and they do not get the proper treatment for their disorder. Prisons should also teach prisoners the proper way to act in society and also give them a good reintegration program so they can function in society when their sentence is up. There are many things that we can change about our current prison system.
