Discussion Board Questions For BCJ 2002 Unit V

This is what my classmate wrote and I have to comment on it

I do agree with incarcerating offenders with mental illness. Obviously I would want mental health services and rehabilitation provided for each subject. I do understand this is not a popular side of the fence to be on. I, by no means believe I have better solutions. I base my views off of my experiences in my profession. I do not think violent offenders should be set free and the safety of the public put at risk. I do understand the heartbreak of mental illness and how it has affected my family personally. My first cousin, whom I was raised with, suffers from mental illness. He is also a criminal and has committed some very violent crimes since returning for 2 tours in Iraq. Despite knowing the quality of person he was and was raised to be, his outstanding service to our country, and the love I have for him, I would not want him walking free or bound to show up periodically to a treatment center. I know, based on prior behavior, that he may not show up for his counseling, check in, or therapy. When he is not accounted for, someones life may be at risk.

I absolutely understand why points of view vary so greatly on this issue. I just don’t believe the safety of the public should be placed at risk because a person has a medical diagnosis.

The key word to my point of view is “violence”. If a offender has a mental illness but only commits petit thefts, obviously I dont believe they should be incarcerated for that.
