Crime While Incarcerated

Why do inmates break the rules while in prisoner?  Is it because they are innately malicious people who are harmful to themselves, society, and lack self-control?  Probably not.

In a report by, inmates have the same basics needs as anyone else.  In 1943, Abraham Maslow identifies five primary needs that we as humans have.  The needs are: physiological, safety, love, esteem,  and self-actualization. #PWIC, #PWICUS

If an inmate, for example, is deprived of one of these needs such as food, they are likely to engage in misconduct.  The same is true for those in society.  If some of you miss a meal, you may feel angry or unhappy.
