Finding and paraphrasing outside sources in Victor Rios’ “Punished”

Search chapter 4 for three examples of expert opinions or sources. For example,

“Labor historian Robin Kelley argues that young people become involved in “play”–the seeking of personal enjoyment despite their detrimental circumstances.” (75)

Then, re-write the expert opinion in your own words. For example,

“In his study of labor history, Robin Kelley finds that no matter where a young person lives, they want to enjoy themselves by playing around.”

I included all the important information but re-wrote it in my own words.

Homework. Do the same for Chapter 6 on a separate sheet of paper.

    “Criminologist John Hagan and Bill MeCarthy explained the difference between debilitating social control and rehabilitating social control: Normal shame & shaming produce social solidarity, whereas pathological shame & shaming produce alienation.” (89)

    Normal shaming an individual does create unity or agreement, although pathological shaming an individual creates the state of being isolated.

    “The growing numbers of young brown bodies engaged in play rather than work have contributed to popular constructions of the underclass as a threat and shaped urban police practices.” (76)

    The play young brown bodies engage in has now shaped urban police practices and made the underclass as a threat.

    “Criminologist David Garland reminds us that punishment does not just restrain or discipline society – punishment helps create it.” (75)

    Instead of helping the society, there are now punishment within. This now helps form the society people live in.

    “No public safety officer shall be prohibited from seeking election to, or serving as a member of, governing board of school district” – California Government Code, “Police Officers Bill of Rights,” 1977
    Public safety officers have the right to interfere in student activity as a part of the governing board of school district.
    “In its function, the power to punish is not essentially different that of curing or educating.” -Michael Foucault, Discipline and Punish, 1977
    This police bill was passed so that police could throw you in jail quickly punishing anyone who breaks the rules.They believe punishment not much different than education.
    Normal shaming and shaming produce social solidarity, whereas pathological alienation.”
    Shaming and socially shaming people or things makes you feeling of unity with others or that you’re taking action, but in the inside you feel alone.

    1) ” Criminologist David Garland reminds us that “punishment does not just restrain or discipline society – punishment helps create it”. He contends that punishment is one of the many institutions which helps construct and support the social world by producing the share categories and authoritative classification through which individuals understand each other and themselves.” (75)

    David Garland says that Punishment does not protect society but that it creates more problems that can be caused by the criminals late.
