After reading and reflecting upon the article, “Prison Architecture and Inmate Misconduct,” which perspective do you believe provides the best explanation of inmate misconduct: the deprivation perspective, the importation perspective, or the situational perspective? Be sure to explain why and fully elaborate. And, based upon what you have read so far in this class, which type of prison architecture do you believe would be the best in deterring staff-inmate inappropriate relationships? Elaborate. Next, as you may know, very few states offer conjugal visits between inmates and their intimate partners. Based upon the readings for Week Five, do you feel as though Texas prisons should offer conjugal visits? Why or why not? Elaborate. Do you believe Texas prison wardens would support conjugal visits? Explain your answer. Next, in their article, Pleggenkuhle and colleagues (2018) allude to the fact that more than 1/3 of the respondents in their sample had not received a visit during their incarceration. Assuming that visitation has positive benefits for the offender, please provide at least one original suggestion as to how inmates who do not receive visits can still experience some of the positive benefits of visitation? In other words, what, if anything, can be done to help inmates who have very limited close contacts outside the prison walls? Your suggestion should be creative, yet also realistic. Next, in her article, Lynne Haney focuses primarily on incarcerated fathers but has very little to say about incarcerated mothers. In your opinion, if an incarcerated mother is pregnant and has a child, should the newborn child be permitted to live with the mother for any given length of time — even if it is in a prison or prison hospital? Fully elaborate. And, after reflecting upon Haney’s article, please point to one example from the paper which illustrates how recently released inmates may be so tangled up in the child support system that they turn to crime. Be specific. Finally, Haney discusses how former inmates who are entangled in the child support system are often “at the bottom of the dating pool” because of all the issues and complications they must contend with (p. 36). If it is, indeed, true that a reliable female companion can exponentially help a formerly released inmate meet his child support obligations, what can social services agencies, criminal justice agencies, or society as a whole do to help male ex-convicts (especially those with child support obligations) be seen as more viable partners?
