Please explain the evolution of punishment. Some states are currently setting inmates free due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There are many reasons for this. But using these recent incidents as a starting discussion, I want you to trace the history of corrections back to its roots. So, how did our correctional system get to where it is today? Please thoroughly explain the historic progression of the system in chronological order, including: wereguild, Hammurabi Code, Pennsylvania system, Auburn system, inmate leasing system, etc. Obviously, there were many other stages of change that you should also discuss. You should also explain the particular reasoning or theory underlying each phase discussed.
