Supermax prisons and the Constitution : liability concerns in the extended control unit by William C Collins( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extended control units (ECUs), or "supermax" prisons, house a prison system's most dangerous inmates. Because of the restrictions that go with the extraordinarily high level of security such inmates require, these facilities sometimes function at the limits of what is constitutionally acceptable and are, therefore, fre quent targets of inmate litigation. This monograph is intended to help prisons operate ultra-high-security facilities in a way that minimizes liability in litigation. The monograph covers the background of supermax prisons and related litigation, and it takes a close look at case law, prison policies and practices, and "lessons learned" in operational areas that give rise to litigation.--Abstract, page v
Racial disparities in the criminal justice system by Joan Petersilia( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study has three objectives: (1) to see if there is any evidence that the criminal justice system systematically treats minorities differently from whites; (2) if there is such evidence, to see whether that treatment represents discrimination or is simply a reaction to the extent and seriousness of minority crimes; and (3) to discuss the policy implications for correcting any bias. Prior research on discrimination in the criminal justice system has produced controversial and contradictory findings. Section II discusses the problems with this research and briefly describes the data and methodology. Section III describes the workings of the criminal justice system and identifies racial differences in case processing revealed in some of the data. Section IV analyzes more of the data for racial differences in crime commission rates and the probability of being arrested. Section V looks at racial differences following the imposition of a court sentence. Section VI explores racial differences in offender characteristics, specifically crime motivation, weapon use, and prison violence. Section VII summarizes the findings and presents the conclusions of the study
