Week 2 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Constitutional Rights of Prisoners
The Supreme Court has held that prisons may restrict the constitutional rights of prisoners where the restriction is connected to a legitimate penological interest. Provide an example of this idea when prisoners’ constitutional rights may be restricted in the interest of a legitimate jail function. Is it fair that prisoners’ rights may be restricted by prison administrators? Why or why not?
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. In your responses to classmates, provide an alternative point of view regarding the fairness issue. Also, consider that pretrial detainee’s rights are restricted while in jail; however, they have not yet been convicted of any crimes.
