Our philosophy regarding crime and punishment has shifted at various times in our history. In a 2-3 page essay, describe the relationship between social contexts and the justification for punishment. Historically, how have society’s beliefs about crime translated into specific policies and punishments used during these time periods? How has our present day “get tough on crime” belief philosophy contributed to the policies and punishments that we currently emphasize in our correctional system? What impact have these shifting policies and punishments had on the operational procedures of the correctional system? Use a minimum of two references, which can include the course text book, to support your argument.
