    I don't cry for them. They took a risk and they lost; happens all the time.

    I'm just saying that if Bernie Madoff should suffer every day for the rest of his then I'm perfectly okay with that. I despise people like him. They are what's wrong with the world. He's the type of person who wouldn't lift a finger unless it benefited himself personally; a selfish, rotten asshole who deserves everything he has coming to him.

    He's still a human being and deserves to be treated like one.
    Hell, I didn't beat him up.

    Your comment, along with the comments of others, is obviously intended to make the victims in this case look like the bad guys. I dont know if it's because you hate people with money, or what.





    That aside, the idea that going to prison means being housed with a bunch of animals is a broad generalization which is demonstrably untrue in a variety of facilities across the country.
    I doubt seriously that there are very many prison populations that aren't made up of a majority of animals.

    That said, if we lock up someone with "a bunch of animals" as a punishment instead of just, you know, locking them up, then we're little better than animals ourselves.
    "Locking them up with a bunch of animals", is just the nature of the beast. It's inevitable for prison populations to be made up of mostly animals.

    Don't like it? Don't break the law.

    I just don't see it that way, as TED has pointed out you go to prison to be removed from society and not to be beaten by other inmates.

    If that can happen to the guilty in prison, it can happen to the innocent in prison.

    Don't get me wrong though, I'm a firm believer in vigilantly justice when the government fails to prosecute crimes but once they have, you should not be subject to beatings because a lot of people don't like you.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    If he's concerned about being treated like a human, he shouldn't have stolen people's life savings.

    But, it will happen. It's prison. It's an unhappy dangerous place as well it should be.

    Laissez-faire depends on people who wantonly disregard the law? What a strange idea you have there...

    Of course it will because, we in this country believe it's ok to treat animals with non rehabilitative punishment.

    It doesn't do anything to stop crime, either rehabilitate them or kill them but don't torture them if you plan to release them.

    The tougher we make it prison, the less people will won't to go and they will think twice before breaking the law.

    It doesn't do anything to stop crime, either rehabilitate them or kill them but don't torture them if you plan to release them.
    personally, I think prison isn't hard enough. I think we need to create an even more dangerous and scary environment that there already is.

    Don't like it? Don't break the law. It's that simple.
