We’ve spent the past two weeks studying the issue of detention policy. You’ve been provided content on many aspects of detention policy as it relates to terror suspects, immigrants, and mass incarceration. Now it’s your turn.
For your discussion question this week, conduct some basic research on a detention issue that interests you (for example, the incarceration of non-violent drug offenders). Once you’ve decided on a particular issue, take a position in support or opposition of a related policy and explain your stance to your classmates. This exercise will test your persuasive writing ability, so please do your best to present a well-reasoned argument.
