It is sad to read the many awful stories
that speak about Florida prisons/as well
as other state prisons. It is not just
Florida these horrible situations take place.
Prison is Prison and pepper spraying, the
unecessary beatings, the teasing/tasing and scrutiny these prisoners take are unbareable.
I cannot even begin to fathom that kind of
treatment. We have to continuously get involved
with our governors, letters, signing of
petitions and fighting back with who we put
in these office chairs for senate,/state reps
and so forth. They are the ones who make the
decisions that allow budget cuts and
private prisons/untrained staff etc. All for
the sake of money. These inmates suffer. We
also have to teach our babies to stay out of prison. There are so many parents not doing the
job folks. You have kids raising thereselves on
the streets, and are already left with choices of
killing, robbing, drugs etc because parents let alone any positive influence is not involved.
We need accountability. I never did a day in prison because the ass whooping that my
dad and mother had waiting on me, that allowed
me to outweigh my bad decision a many of day. That old school up bringing needs to come back. Our world has spiraled beyond fixing and it is truly sad.

These crybabies need to shut up. I read these illiterate whiny posts and want to throw up. Maybe if you or your kid had gone to school past third grade, the little dirtbag wouldn't be in prison. If you'd raised your kids right, they wouldn't be in prison. If you acted right, you wouldn't be in prison. Once you're in there, who cares what happens to you? You're a criminal. Can't do the time, don't do the crime!
