Althought the last sentence isn't true at all, I know of one guard that is in the hospital right now and has been all day. Why the media would report that no staff was injured is beyond me because I know for a fact at least one was.

Amen! For goodness sake they're in prison and they're in there for a reason last time i checked television, snacks and anything you f&@#ing want wasn't a punishment. If you treated your children the way the state treats those inmates they'dbe spoiled little brats.

I'm not for any special privileges for inmates but think logically! No food for 2 weeks?? I'm a man and I get very anxious & angry when I get hungry, a lot of men do. If you didn't feed them for 2 weeks not only would a lot of them die & you would have law suits, a lot of them would be even more angrier from hunger & start acting out over that possibly eating one another. Also the inmate that was flown out due to being stabbed over 20 times died this morning.

too many of you self righteous ass hypocrites on this forum til your angels get in to some mess then thats when its unjust. Half of yall are guilty of something and just havent been caught or paid,begged and pleaded your way out. what they should do is what they claim they're doing,HELP REFORM THEM!!offer some shit that will actually benefit them and help them become productive not them bullshit classes that serve no purpose in a world full of people like yall that makes a felony charge grounds for lifelong crucifiction of the offender. truthfully its made up to do just what it does and all of you all with your negative ass comments edge it on,if they didnt come back the government would go broke, they really aint for the betterment and neither are any of you

and yes there are some,like the one that stabbed the other, that do deserve severe punishment but you have others that are just doing their home and trying to get home to their families and begin a new life. noone seems to think about the fact that some actually do learn their lessen and still feel the wrath of what others are doing

First of all if you think Tennessee is giving them snacks or whatever for free think again. Prison is a business and a big one at that. They make money of these men, women and their families.

True, you are so right. I know for a fact that inmates have to pay for every thing they get. People in this world think they know eveything when they know nothing. Have they been in prison? Know one knows untill they have been there. And no I have not been in prison. And yes I do know some things that go on in prison. And it is no ones's business how I know. It is not a good thing when a person tells everything they know. This is whats wrong with small towns.

none of you know what your talking about. inmates have it made. do you know how much they pay for a pair of glasses?(3) THREE DOLLARS! if they assault an officer they have to pay 4 dollars and do 10 days in the hole. they get a free bed, 3 free meals, free cable, and free lights and water. they only have to pay 3 dollars to see a doctor. they are not treated bad in any way. hell they are better treated than the officers that work there. yall make me sick, inmates decide they want to cut each other up and you blame the correctional officers or the justice system. like one person said on here, they are in prison FOR A REASON! Reform them? make money off of them? HELLO! it costs millions of dollars to house them! did u know the prison fixes 8000 meals a day? or that they spend $10000 per person to train employees that they cant even keep? before you open your mouth and insert foot, maybe you should do some research first. i imagine the people on here that are oh poor inmates have a family member or loved one in there. hell they are probably the ones that sneak drugs and phones in the prison making safety for everyone harder to achieve.
