They are in prison for a reason. Ask their victims if they feel that the inmates are being treated unfairly. If they behave ( inmates), they can move closer to their families, to receive more visits. Often the ones that truly want to better themselves, are the ones that get the most help. They are willing to go along with the rules and regulations, and come out of prison with a better outlook on life. To include a free education.
These people (Prison Society) visit the worst of the worst while they are in prison, then they listen to their sob stories of how they are treated in prison. The inmate doesn't go to the RHU for good behavior. But they never find out why that inmate is in the current position. Most of the time the inmate has put themselves in that position, by way of assaults on both staff and fellow inmates.
They had a chance to better themselves, but they chose the path that they have chosen. Just like anyone else in life.
