The release of offenders into their communities rests on trust: trust that they have reformed and trust that they are no longer dangerous. Do you think this is a noble or foolish practice? Are we right to place this trust in re-entering offenders? Consider these questions as you participate in the week’s activities.

Please respond to all of the following prompts in the class discussion section of your online course:

  • What issues do re-entering offenders face?
  • How can they be overcome both by the offenders themselves and the communities they enter?

Support each of your answers with explanations.
