CRJS465 Unit 2 Discussion Solved





The problem of additional health-related diseases will arise in the prison system. There will be more HIV, more tuberculosis, and other communicable diseases.  Pick a position on the question of mapping inmates for genetic predisposition to a specific disease and whether inmates should have the same rights in regard to this topic as the general public.

Within the Discussion Board area, write up to 3 paragraphs that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas:


  • Should the prison system also map inmates that have these types of diseases?
  • The general public has raised an outcry about insurance companies that follow persons who may have a genetic predisposition to a specific disease stating that it would violate their constitutional rights. Should the prisoners also have these rights? Why or why not?
  • What reasons might correctional institutions have to map these inmates?
