Виправні установи у Сполучених Штатах.


Типова в’язниця у Сполучених Штатах сьогодні – це фортеця зі сталі та каменю. У ній знаходяться будівлі з камерами для засуджених, адміністрація, школи, каплички (chapels), фабрики, майстерні, їдальня, лікарня та подвір’я для прогулянок. Інколи в’язниці містять спортивні майданчики. Поза стінами фортеці розташовані головні офіси адміністрації, будинки охоронців, допоміжного складу та їх сімей. Деякі в’язниці мають особисті фермерські господарства. Кількість в’язнів зазвичай становить від декількох сотень до тисячі. Але існують виправні установи, де засуджених три і навіть шість тисяч. Зазвичай вночі засуджених тримають в одиночних камерах, а вдень вони працюють у майстернях. Спілкуватися в’язні не мають права. Разом вони тільки харчуються. Така система організації американських в’язниць була створена у ХІХ сторіччі і має назву Обурнська система.

1. Prepare reports on the following topics:

-“Role of the Law-Enforcement System in Ukraine”

-“The Most Famous Spies of the XX Century”


1. Read the abstracts and give the names of law-enforcement bodies and institutions mentioned in them.

1. Although enforced degradation and hopelessness have proven a failure in the war against crime this institution has not changed greatly. In our country it is a state institution used to correct persons who have been convicted by court. It is subordinated to the Penal Department. The observance of legality in this institution is supervised by the Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine.

2. This organ performs different kinds of law enforcing activity: detection and disclosing crimes; supervision; upholding state prosecution in court; representing interests of citizens or state.

3. History of this body was always connected with different myths. Its workers often lived double lives and had pseudonyms. This is the law enforcing agency of Ukraine. Its main aim is to protect state sovereignty, territorial integrity, state secrets and so on.

4. The workers of this structure sometimes get into criminal sphere in order to disclose criminal activity of the criminal group. This organization is a part of law enforcing agencies. Its activity has many directions and there are many departments in this bodies.


2. Read the abstract from Sydney Sheldon “If Tomorrow Comes” about life in American prison and be ready to speak about:

A. the education in prison;

B. an ordinary day in the prison;

C. a prison cell.

Tracy soon learned why inmates referred to a term in the penitentiary as ‘going to college’. Prison was an educational experience, but what the prisoners learned was unorthodox.

The prison was filled with experts of every conceivable type of crime. They exchanged methods of grafting, shoplifting, and rolling drunks. They brought one another up to date on games and exchanged information on snitches and undercover cops.

In the recreation yard one morning, Tract listened to an older inmate give a seminar on pick pocketing to a fascinated young group.

‘The real pros come from Columbia. They got a school in Bogota, called the school of the ten bells, where you pay twenty-five hundred bucks to learn to be a pickpocket. They hang a dummy from the ceiling, dressed in a suit with ten pockets, filled with money and jewelry’.

‘What’s the gimmick?’

‘The gimmick is that each pocket has a bell on it. You don’t graduate till you kin empty every damn pocket without ringing the bell’.

Lola sighed, ‘I used to go with a guy who walked through crowds dressed in an overcoat, with both his hands out in the open, while he picked everybody’s pockets like crazy’.

‘How the hell could he do that?’

‘The right hand was a dummy. He slipped his real hand through a slit in the coat and picked his through pockets and wallets and purses.’

In the recreation room the education continued.

‘I like the locker-key rip-off.’ a veteran said. ‘You hang around a railway station till you see a little old lady trying to lift a suitcase or a big package into one of them lockers. You put it in for her and hand her the key. Only it’s the key to an empty locker. When she leaves, you empty her locker and split.’

In the yard another afternoon, two inmates convicted of prostitution and possession of cocaine were talking to a new arrival, a pretty young girl who looked no more than seventeen.

‘No wonder you got busted, honey,’ one of the older women scolded. ‘Before you talk price to a John, you have got to pat him down to make sure he isn’t carrying a gun, and never tell him what you are going to do for him. Make him tell you what he wants. Then if he turns out to be a cop, it’s entrapment, see?’

The other pro added, ‘Yeah. And always look at their hands. If a trick says he is a working man, see if his hands are rough. That’s the tip-off. A lot of plainclothes cops wear working men’s outfits, but when it comes to their hands, they forget, so their hands are smooth.’


Time went neither slowly nor quickly. It was simply time. Tracy thought of St Augustin’s aphorism: ‘What is time? If no one asks me, I know. But if I have to explain it, I do not know.’

The routine of the prison never varied:

4.40 a.m. Warning bell

4.45 a.m. Rise and dress

5.00 a.m. Breakfast

5.30 a.m. Return to cell

5.55 a.m. Warning bell


10.00 a.m. Exercise yard

10.30 a.m. Lunch

11.00 a.m. Work detail lineup

3.30 p.m. Supper

4.00 p.m. Return to cell

5.00 p.m. Recreation room

6.00 p.m. Return to cell

8.45 p.m. Warning bell

9.00 p.m. Lights out


The rules were inflexible. All inmates had to go to meals, and no talking was permitted in the lines. No more than five cosmetic items could be kept in the small cell lockers. Beds had to be made prior to breakfast and kept neat during the day.
