First, after reading the article, "Suicide in Prison," provide at least one original suggestion that prison administrators could implement to reduce inmate suicide attempts in prison facilities. It should be evident that you have reflected upon the article; therefore, please discuss how your suggestion reflects a point mentioned by Suto and Arnaut (2010). Your suggestion can be creative, yet it must also be realistic. Next, Suto and Arnaut discuss that none of the inmate respondents reported suicidal ideation during the interview. However, if this had happened, in your opinion, would it have been appropriate for the researchers to break confidentiality and report this to prison personnel? Take a position either way and fully defend it. Next, in your opinion, after reading the article by Orrick and Morris (2015), which inmate do you suppose would be more likely to attempt suicide: a technical violator or an inmate admitted for the commission of a new offense? Please be sure to fully support your answer. Also, after reading the article by Orrick and Morris (2015), what type of prison disciplinary infraction was most frequently committed by inmates who were readmitted? Did this surprise you? Why or why not? Next, based upon the Orrick and Morris (2015) article, as well as other articles you have read throughout the semester, which type of inmate do you think would be more likely to engage in an inappropriate relationship with a staff member: a technical violator or an inmate who commits a new offense? Please support your answer. Next, please point to one aspect of Beckett and Evans' (2016) article that you believe would be of particular interest to policy makers and correctional administrators? In your opinion, and based upon Beckett and Evan's (2016) article, is it possible that the death penalty is applied in a discriminatory manner toward members of ethnic minorities? Fully elaborate. Finally, from reading Beckett and Evan's (2016) article, it is apparent that extensive publicity increases the likelihood that prosecutors will seek the death penalty. In your opinion, is this inevitable? Is there anything that can be done by policymakers and/or the media to prevent this from happening? Elaborate. In addition to fully responding to the above question, please pose a critical thinking question to your peers. Please remember, this critical thinking question is meant to challenge your classmates in a meaningful way, and it must be a graduate-level question.
