I think the judicial system may be over-inclusive in the way it sentences persons for life that may have remorse yet not have any chance of getting out of prison. Thus bettering their lives and changing. They are stuck in a prison cell ripe with crime within it's own walls. The person jailed can do nothing but go insane or intertwine with the prison popluation to survive.

I feel that it is under inclusive in that it releases prisoners with shorter sentences that have not made any attempts to better their lives or adapt to normal social behavior. They are most apt to return to criminal behavior.

If so, what type of crimes or individuals should be the focus of law inforcement?

Personally I feel that Law Enforcement is doing their jobs and have no direct decisions on who or what crime to focus on...........there is such a large diversity of crime today.

Instead our Prison System needs to be revamped and overhauled to better assist and help prisoners with or with out long or short sentences. You can go in on a first offense and come out far worse then when you first go in. This is due to a lack of many factors in our prison reform system and affects the entire prison population.

I was personally asked by our admin to assist you. I had passed on this question until asked..............what else are you wanting other then what I have provided. I attempt to remain neutral on the ethnic background of prisoners. Please advise.

Well my disscusion either has to be over-inclusive or under-inclusive, Either way Im not to picky on any of it other than I have to be able to discuss either point. I am neutral to everyone and believe that everyone one deserves fair treatment,I have no problems with ethnic backgrounds, there must have been a miss understanding. I apologize for any misunderstandings about my questions.
