part 1

Assignment Description: Which justification for punishment do you favor: retribution, deterrence, incapacitation, rehabilitation, reintegration, or a combination? Explain why.

Throughout the history of corrections, what types of punishments tend to be used for which types of crimes? How did early philosophers such as Howard, Bentham, Beccaria, and Penn influence the use of punishment?

part 2

Discussion Board Topic: Read Cracked Justice (pg. 136) – an overview of the crack-powder cocaine sentencing disparity by Nicole Porter and Valerie Wright

What are your thoughts on the information presented? Do you feel that sentencing is something that needs to be continually modified in the criminal justice system (CJS)?

Are there other types of sentencing disparities that currently exist in the CJS? Think about crime type or gender differences. Use your resources to come up with at least one other example.
