In a 5-7 page minimum paper, adhering to APA rules, Research and explain what the impact of corrections in the criminal justice system means to one specific category of people.
This should address the impact on specific populations based on the numbers of persons we incarcerate in the United States for various offenses.
This may be based on race, gender or class. (E.g. African Americans, Hispanics, Homosexuals, Immigrants, Females, the poor, the mentally ill, the drug dependent, or another segment of the population affected)
As with any scholarly work, provide scholarly and reliable evidence to support what you find. (a minimum of four (4) scholarly references (peer reviewed works)) To investigate and analyze this, I would suggest you examine current news events, reports from organizations representing the group, and in particular research studies done about the public approval or perceptions of the system from your chosen group.
As this topic covers what the system means to a specific group, you may find resources that offer opinions without support of the entire group, so watch out for material that is simply rhetoric based on little factual information.
