On a daily basis, individuals are bombarded with the different images of various views in reflection to the crisis that happens daily. This is relation to the national penal system. In this view, the concepts of physical brutality and definite neglect lead to the various forms of highlights concerning the penal colony as illustrated by Jennifer Wynn. In the piece of art she definitely tells about the Rikers Island, just six miles from the Empire State Building. This is one of the nearly all multifarious and costly penal organizations in the world. Yet, definitely most New Yorkers could not actually find it on a map.
In chapter 4 of the book “Inside Rikers: Stories from the World's Largest Penal Colony” Jennifer discusses about criminals and their activities that heavily costs the society. In this view, gun control legislation is the most intricate issue truly and widely highlighted by the author. This is clearly highlighted by the massive failure of the various responsible authorities to handle over the matters at stake. "If there were ever a metaphor for a failure of democracy, lack of firearms control may be it"(Jennifer, 2012). In this context, she actually goes to the extent of highlighting the plight of the people concerned, but in the typical liberal detours. This is to avoid the view of mentioning the individuals in the most personal way with regards to the view of discussing criminals.
Hence, the view of gun control legislation is the most open idea that is being brought out into the lime light. This shows that the control of the firearms in the nation have become one of the most affecting issues to the people concerned. This is in the view that most of the individuals are both legally and illegally acquiring the firearms with many different motives. One view is that people are seeking the form of self defense to help eliminate the suspicion regarding the activities which leads to their security being at an ultimate risk.
In the view of Frank, she brings him as a passive victim of circumstance, rather than someone who made a personal decision to commit crimes. In this context, she focuses on the idea of poverty that literary leads the individuals to engage in the criminal activities. It highlights the plight of social changes that cased the people to be in the category based on classes and subdivision among themselves. In this view, she brings the context of "failure of democracy". In this liberal view of ideas she bases her argument in the forecast that should be on the 21st century.
The concept of crime is also clearly defined by the author. This is in the presented version that those in behind the bars have not actually chosen the path but are forced by the unfortunate situations in the society that brings the quagmire preventing them from going on ahead in the transformation of their immediate environments. Under this, she brings the perception that blacks become permanent residents of the acquired criminal justice system.
In conclusion, the concept of racism is also highlighted by Jennifer in a view that it affects the individuals in their work places. "They see their less-fortunate peers in [prison uniform] and realize how far they've fallen and how few excuses they have." (Jennifer, p.58). This brings the concept of the unequal opportunities in all aspects of the economy including prison.
