Excerpt from 'Discussion and Results' chapter :

I also agree to the use of media recovery devices to help in recovering the deleted record. The police cannot afford loosing the evidence since it is the most appropriate way of deciding on the case. The police should be in custody of the devices that can help in retrieving deleted media because this act as a way of securing evidences in the public.

Sentencing reform

I support the view that there should be improvement in the penal system to ensure that there is relief of the overcrowding problem. The improvement in the penal system involves diversifying on the penalties that an individual undergoes without including prisons as a vital solution. This would involve the states re-evaluating the sentence terms for the low-level crimes. Only the high-risk offenders should be in prisons while the state should go for other methods like house arrest and microchip technology in cases of low-level offenders (Kraska & Bent, 2011). This ensure that there is reduction in the number of prisoners while also cutting down on the government expenses; consequently, providing assurance for efficiency.

Juvenile prisons

I support the view that keeping the youths in a juvenile prison should involve querying an interactive database about the individual. This provides the court with enough information to determine the susceptibility of the individual associating to the mental health problems or the substance abuse. Further, the interactive database and the normal court procedures help in determining the magnitude of the crime. This helps in determining whether Juvenile prison should be the appropriate, if high level, or a non-criminal environment, if low level. The diversification will help in reducing the burden of the criminal justice system in remedying the mental health and substance abuse cases (Hancock & Sharp, 2004).
