4/25/16 Chapter 17 class notes Ideologies Deterrence: imposing a penalty that will scare people away from getting involved in criminal behavior Incapacitation view: if you have victimizing criminals, you know they are an offender so as long as they are behind bars protects people from these criminals  Both have appeal but also have a lot of issues and problems  There is no direct scientific way to study whether or not harsher threats can actually keep people away from crime (the studies vary and are more indirect) Death penalty issues and why it is challenged 1. the cost of it: higher than keeping them behind bars because until 2009 there was an unlimited amount of appeals that could be filed by the person being sentenced to death, to delay process as long as they had the money to do that but since 09 if you have filed an appeal you can’t file any more appeals unless NEW EVIDENCE has surfaced in the case 2. no correlation between murder rates in a state and the death penalty 3. what is considered to be excessive punishment? Is the death penalty too excessive? 4. Banned by supreme court for 4 years because criticism of the states that had the death penalty and how they were imposing them, it was an arbitrary nature, there was no pattern of this being imposed -not clear why people did/didn’t get the death penalty 5. 2008: unless it is a capital one murder you cannot get the death penalty, and you cannot be a minor R&L chapter 4: Connection between ideology (statements or beliefs that people use to justify their outlooks or behaviors) and the way the system is working right now 2 ideologies in criminal justice system 1. connection between social class and crime: people tend to think about street crime instead of white collar crime -criminals are at the bottom of the socioeconomic status index (poor people) -people going to/have been to prison are poor --criminals are correlated with poor people 2. do things to follow the norms, but in deviant behavior we change our tune, we look at internal forces instead of external influences to try to explain why the criminal is doing what they do (individual blame approach) Chapter 5: recommendations for the criminal justice system -get tough is one approach -need to think further…what happens when they get out of jail? -rehab approach: provide them with skills and training while in jail -passing laws to protect them against employment discrimination -use punishment structure to promote social responsibility
