Those in prison are being targeted. Those who supervise the prisons are targeting inmates, sometimes treating them inhumane. That is one of the reasons our recidivism rates are extremely high in the United States. They treat them like animals; as if they weren’t human, and then questions why they act the way they do. The prisons are meant to change the humans mentality, character, and persona for the better. The complete opposite happens, we change them for the worse, inflicting pessimistic thoughts and actions onto the inmates head. Provide opportunity for the inmate to change and grow into a better person. I am not saying what they did is justifiable, as crimes vary so do consequences. 

The United States Of America glorifies this: they’d rather house a threat then eliminate a threat to society. Why not change their demeanor? Why are our incarceration rates so high? Why don’t we change what we are doing because without proper guidance criminals usually go back to prison.

America deprives them of their rights, we deprive them of opportunities to fend for themselves, and their overall freedom. This is where social inequalities occur.

Undeniably some people belong there; yet, they should still continue to learn from their mistakes so it won’t happen again. Injust treatment is obscure, as mistakes are apart of the human psyche.

If we act know, we can open the eyes of many. We come from many different backgrounds where crime may or may not be evident. The way we are brought up is inevitable but the way we act is our choice and interpretations.

As humans, everyone should be treated as a human. Let their freedom be taken away but not their humanity!
