    Who Watches MSNBC's Lockup Series?

    These Shows are about prison life and are shown Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday. I have no desire to watch them, but since they have fairly good ratings, I am wondering who it is.

    I watch MSNBC long enough to hit the UP or DOWN button on the remote to get past it.

    On my cable system, Fox News is channel 48 and MSNBC is channel 49, making for an easy flip. Except on the hour and half hour the commercials are offset so I tend to sort of watch them both to get the polar opposites of views on the latest "news" items.

    I have watched them from time to time. I often think about the fact that many of these prisoners will be released at some point and walking by you on the sidewalk.

    Being they are felons they will not be desirable candidates by most employers so no job and no money they are left one viable option; to return to crime.

    I only watched To Catch a Predator when they had it on. I like laughing at stupid people.

    Never heard of it - so didn't vote.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I watch it sometimes if nothing else is on. Curiosity over the social issues that lead people into lives of crime, especially women. Many of the incarcerated, I've have concluded are mental ceases and are true dangers to society, especially men. Nearly all of the women I've seen on the series the few times I've watched, drug addiction is a factor.

    Its helped me reaffirm my belief that we need to come up with other ways to deal with criminals. Other than the violent, I don't think anyone should be locked up. It only destroys lives and is expensive. I'd much rather see house arrest on a huge scale in a way that allows people to work and go straight home afterwards maybe using some of their earnings to fund their monitoring and compensate their victims.

    I also think making criminal and arrest records public only turns people into career criminals, exception for the violent. Being asked on a job application do you have a conviction or arrest record is usually a guarantee not to get hired. I understand needing to know if someone is violent you want to know if he's a danger to others. I understand if someone is applying for a job that requires handling money, does a person have a history of stealing. I understand if you're working at a pharmacy, you can't have a recovering drug addict. But blanket access to all criminal records I do not support. It should be on a need to know basis for the best interest of all of society or these people are not employable.

    No idea on who else watches; I can only guess.
