should changes be made to the u.s. prison and penal system?

  Read enough to form an opinion based on what you have read. Though this essay will be based on an opinion, you will not use “I”; rather, you will argue for your position based on credible, authoritative research.   Formulate an arguable, “complete” thesis on your topic. Remember that the easiest way to create arguability is to use the word “should.” You can usually use the word “because” to lead in to a “complete” thesis, which will mention 2-4 reasons paraphrased from your research, and which will form the basis for your essay.  below is the information on the topic

( Rising crime rates and the War on Drugs in the 1990’s led to tough-on-crime policies and mandatory sentences that resulted in soaring prisoner populations and new prisons to hold them. Today, nearly 2.5 million Americans are behind bars. Over half are parents of minor children. More than 65 million people (20% of the country) have criminal records. The majority of incarcerated people are from racial and ethnic minorities and/or lower socioeconomic classes. For example, almost 40% of U.S. prisoners are African-American, despite making up only 13% of the general population. Many prisons are overcrowded and poorly supervised, leaving inmates subject to abuse from guards and other prisoners. When people are released from prison, they face many obstacles and are less likely to be able to find steady employment. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the annual cost of operating prisons, jails, parole, and probation in the United States is $81 billion. Prison reform now has bipartisan support in the U.S., even though conservatives and liberals have different reasons for supporting it. Since 2007, 35 states have undertaken prison reform by changing sentencing laws and corrections policies)
