Claims of Radicalization of American Muslim Prisoners and Public Safety

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to examine the unintended consequences of counterterrorism policies towards Muslim prisoners and determine if classification designations impact the levels of deprivation of the prisoners. It has been suggested that the heightened levels of deprivation have an adverse effect on Muslim prisoners confined within U.S. correctional facilities which may pose a threat to public safety and national security. These policies may have a detrimental effect on the quality of life of Muslim prisoners transcending post-incarceration. Congressional hearings on Radical Islam that portray the negative stereotypes that only Muslims commit acts of terror have reached beyond the policies in prison, supporting a growing perception in the political sphere that being an American Muslim is associated with being radical. By imposing such a classification on American Muslims living within our communities, there may be unanticipated consequences of defining terrorism as a radical act solely associated with Islam.
