    Doh!
    DOH! Yeah... it isn't either of those, again, showing that you are the emotional one.

    That is the point. I don't seek the DP for those reasons either... I seek it to keep them completely out of society. Thank you for agreeing...

    Yes, I agree costs can be reduced, esp. by reducing the appeals periods and legal fees. (However it's nearly impossible to do that while trying to protect those incorrectly convicted)

    And I dont consider the prison system 'society'. It is specifically designed to keep dangerous people OUT of society. Anyone working there or incarcerated is knowingly subject to that environment.
    As long as those from "society" are subject to the violence of those inside prison... by extension, prison is a part of society.

    I already countered that prison is not part of society. Please dont repeat yourself.

    Right, prison is where we put them to take them OUT of society. Prison guards and the like are quite well aware of the risks they are under and they get paid to do it.

    Since it is... by extension, apparently you are wrong and your insistence that your opinion is correct is incorrect.

    The risks are irrelevant. The fact that members are affected in any manner, then go back into traditional society... makes it a fact that prison is a part of society, no matter how hard it is attempted to "remove" it.

    No it isn't a part of society. It is prison, where we house prisoners to separate them from society.

    Of course it is a part of society. Members of society work there. Come and go. Etc. To think otherwise is literally idiotic. They are separate from most of society but they are still a part of it no matter how small a part of it. There is not some magical veil or alternate reality that separates the two.
