I don't condone what they've done, but... if your in prison, you probably did something pretty horrible to someone.... why should you be treated any differently... kinda sucks when the shoe is on the other foot don't it? Not so funny when you are the victim now is it?

It doesn't matter where your at, no-one should be treated like that. The guards should go through it along with them. Not all inmates are wicked like judgmental idiots make them out to be.

They say what goes around comes around, so I guess Karma has caught up with you guys. Just think back about all the crappy things you all did to others and now you know how they felt. One suggestion I have is keep the soap on the rope and don't drop it.

WAAA, Waaaa, waaaa! Who cares? What did you expect a vacation in a country club? I say it's not bad enough. Make it uncomfortable. If it were worse, they would hear about it and not be getting into prison. How does it feel to be a victim? If the shoe fits, wear it, without sniveling, macho men. Do the "grind in line", it'll save on shower time.

Two and a half million people in 2008 were incarcerated, 1 in every 138 people in the U.S. Sitting on their lazy butz letting U.S. working taxpayers take care of all their needs. Why should I feel sorry for anyone incarcerated?

Exactly. Why feel sorry for someone who has broken the law. These people have so many rights that it's rediculous. Inmates should have all rights revoked. All weights should be removed. Sheriffs around the country should take notice on Maricopa County's Sheriff.

With the philosophy being expressed in this thread, is the intent that prisons are for criminals, therefore, criminals should also RUN the prisons?

It is about time the citizens wake up to the abuses in prisons and detention centers throughout New Mexico. I don't think taxpaying citizens would have their money abused by investing in prison guards and administrators salaries and operation of those facilities. I know I don't appreciate it.

We all know everyone in jail is guilty.
We all know there has never been a case where they convicted the innocent.
Fact is that most people in jail are in there for victimless crimes.
Most victimless crimes contstitute a longer sentence than murder, rape, fraud and other crimes that constitute a victim.
The system is set up to let the real criminals out early to house these types of moral offenders.
Now I know there will be posts saying this is BS, and I know there are some real bad people in jail but the fact still remains that the jails are full of people that are only a victim of themselves.

If that's what you're thinking then yeah, find an island with fresh water, tillable soil, give the first group all the seeds and plants they can plant for food and if they don't grow a garden and work to keep it going, oh well! Animals to hunt, fish to catch, trees to build shelter and let them have at it. If they survive their sentence then they can come back to society. I can see going to jail or prison once, just once and learning your lesson and then becoming an asset to society but for most of these people, it's a way of life. And why not? They're provided with everything they need by us so why change? I say give them an island and let them work it out! Takes the cost of prisons and jails off the taxpayers and puts them to work if they want to survive. We have to work for our survival and they should too.

Read my post carefully. I asked a question based upon all the posts implying that criminals deserve whatever treatment they get in prison and by prison guards....be it legal or not.

That's ridiculous.

I didn't say that's what I was thinking. I asked a question.

Yes, I realize that and just look how far they've come since then. If they don't want to live in a decent, lawabiding society, let them live and build their own society. I'm sick and tired of footing the bill for them when the money could be used to help a lot of people who have worked all their life and now trying to live on social security.
