    Accused of War Crimes, and Living With Perks

    ''Since the days after World War II when people accused as Nazi criminals awaited their fates in the grimness of Nuremberg Prison, reformers have dramatically reshaped the standards under which suspects accused of the vilest war crimes are being held. ''
    Quote from Accused of War Crimes, and Living With Perks - NYTimes.com

    Should prisons holding prisoners these days, who did vile things such as murder, rape, torture... be made more dismal? If so, describe what the prisons they should be held in would be like in your opinion.

    i know a song that sums it up, it goes something like this "four walls, wash basin, prison bed"
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    That depends on whether you and or Society holds the view that a person is innocent until proven to be guilty.
    Within the times that the Nuremburg Prisoners were being held and were on trial accused of a variety of crimes before and during WW11, the conditions within their holding cells, while not luxurious was of an standard greater than the conditions under which their victims were held.

    And I thought our prisons were nothing more than San Franciscan Universities on the rough side of town. If they are being held in jail until trial then they should actually be a jail not a dormitory. Especially if they are make this count towards what ever sentence they receive.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    They are generally sentenced to supermax prison 23 hour solitary lockdown, that's where Ramzi Yousef is and where Zacarias Moussaoui ended up.

    Yes, most definitely and if the ambient average summer time temperature is uncomfortable there A/C should not be provided.
