For one there are two many C.O.s working at the A.C.I. And a good amount of them don't do anything. They are overpaid babysitters. And Im glad some of them finaly got caught because this has been going on for quite sometime. Ive seen the inside of the A.C.I.(the intake section) It seems the state needs to make budget cuts and there is where they should start. They have about 10 million a year in dead weight and they are hiring more! But Carcieri wont cut the budget ther hed rather cut much needed programs like DCYF,education,rehabilitation programs and food and housing for the poor and needy.

It may seem like they get paid for sitting around. In REALITY they are there for protection. When someone tries to kill themselve they try to prevent it from happening. They are there with the risk of being shanked, beat on, spit on, feces and urine thrown at them. When a fight breaks out who are the ones breaking it up? They even have to watch over the criminally insane, and people whacked out on drugs. Sure...it may not happen everyday, but when it does would you want to be the one responding? Your wrong to judge all by a select few.

If you make babies support them! Educate them! Feed them! Provide a safe place for them to live That is the parents responsibility not the States, all handout programs should have time constraints on them. These programs should be used as a helping hand not as a career move.

Beat the hell out of the prisoners,teach them some manners, make it a place they don't want to go back to. No one wants the inmates walking the streets yet, most want to coddle these scumbags...Prison should be tough and the guards need to do what ever it takes to keep order behind the walls period.

If you break the laws and end up in prison you should have no rights. It costs more to house these idiots per year than most of the residents in this state make.

just like they kicked your in prison right ron yea its funny consider most of the negitive in the board. sounc like you have all been in prison at one time or another.

wow imagine that.

Me personaly beat the hell out of the prisisnors they don't deserv any rights at all/

did they think about the victims rights when they were committing the crime to lend them in prison the first time. no they did not.

as far as the gaurds. the brook the law how ever considering wear the testimony came from "prisinors" I would not trust that at all. the only good thing is that the boys who testified againest the gaurds will get beat on again by them once they get into the aci. and the will get beat on by the gaurds when they are out.

eaither way its a win win for the tax payers.

the lesson learned don't do the crime at all what about that? oh poor my i am in jail oh what did i do to get locked up poor me.

her is the vilolin for you to i gave out three of them tonight.
how about not doing the crime in the first place wow ! i am poor but i dont go stealing.
Rhode island stinks its a sad state. I agree. But if you dont do the crime then we would not need a huge aci budget.
Its the poor who commit most of the crime. the verry ones who are on thease programs. Trust me get rid of most of the programs make them get jobs make the ones who can work, work.
the ones who cant well thats why programs like ssdi are invented. the bottom line is state programs for the most part do not work unless the person who is reciveing it wants it to work.oh and we need to get the ilegals off the state programs as well.
