This article is worthy firstly because it brings a topic to the limelight that we don’t think about very often, and secondly, Martinez’s approach as well as the message contained in the article is positive. The biggest strength of the article is that it appeals to the audience to think about the proposal since the message is positive. In this age, where the efforts of philosophers, scientists, and educationalists are focused upon identifying newer ways in which benefits can be drawn from things, this article holds immense value as it proposes turning criminals into gentlemen that can play a positive role in the society. This will not only reduce the load upon the government that is faced with the challenge of providing people with employment, but also serve as an incentive for other ex-convicts who have lost hope in life.

This will not only reduce the load upon the government that is faced with the challenge of providing people with employment, but also serve as an incentive for other ex-convicts who have lost hope in life.

The article would have been more convincing had Martinez included references from some researches upon the ex-cons in general and the Hispanic ex-cons in particular. Another weakness of the article is that at certain points, Martinez seems to be making the same point over and over again. For example, the main point Martinez has conveyed in the second paragraph is that many Hispanic ex-convicts are in prison because of committing petty crimes that we commonly do in everyday life. Then in the third paragraph, the main point is that Hispanic in-mates are common people like us…this is very much the same what has been said in the second
