Non-violent crimes should not typically result in a prison sentence
The government should take more action to ensure prisoners don't hurt or rape each other
The government should take more action to curtail gang activity and racialist activity in prisons
Drugs should be legalized and all nonviolent drug offenders should be freed from prison
None; prisoners are sub-human scum who don't deserve even the most basic rights
Im not sure if I would say they deserve sympathy but I also believe they are a natural part of things. Reguardless of upbringing and genetics you will always have a percentage that will commit such crimes. These are not exlusive to humans other primates also suffer from this. So while I dont feel like they belong in our society for the betterment of all I dont believe we should just toss them aside to die. But I guess the question would be what to do with them?
What would the Chinese do ?
The Germans ?
The Iranis ?
Its high time that the world accepted this problem and became open about it.
The world governments should "exchange notes" as to what works, and what does not...
I imagine this has been tried...with results ??
