Corrections

Introduction

Ethics, as far as, incarceration and corrections are
concerned become controversial in the contemporary world of Justice. Different
cases of unethical practice have been experienced both in the process of making
rulings, and managing incarcerates in the correctional facilities (Pollock 328). A series of case studies have been evaluated
regarding the management approach used in the context of how ethically they are

the situation facing Henry, discern the rationality of the challenge being
