A very easy solution and cheap too. Bring back "horse whipping" as a form of punishment. And if you come back, your sentence is automatically doubled.



I sick & tired of all these prison inmates living large (3 hots & cot, cable TV, etc., etc.) on my tax dollars. Prison should be for PUNISHMENT, not a vacation. Whip them all I say, and save the taxpayers millions of dollars.

why would u permit the two people who killed Eve Carson to spend another day alive??? much less incarcerate them for their lifetimes at taxpayer expenses. This is a sick, sick system and needs to be changed.
We need a people's milita movement to execute convicted killers. It's just that simple...

ID all the illegal alien scum currently living large in the NC prison system, give them 5 to 20 lash with the cat-0-nine, and ship them back to whatever 3rd world $hithole they spawned in.

Problem solved.

Why not just legalize marijuana? Studies have show that the affects of smoking marijuana are less harmful then the legal affects. Why should people who smoke it be in jail? Pot Smokers are harmless, relaxed people. If marijuana was legalized then you could release thousands of inmates. The solution is that simple. It would also help improve our economy if it became publicly marketed.

Most of you think that you have never done anything wrong and you have. What if you made a mistake one mistake in your life that landed you a year in prison how would like it if you got lashes for that I don't think you would. I'm not talking about rapist and murders although everyone deserves a second chance Quiet judging people that you don't even know

NO NO NOOO NOOOOOOOO!

every time a person is stopped for an infraction - run a full ID search

If everyone goes through it - it is not RACIST!

I dont think prison is a vac. but if we had a lot less people out there commiting crimes we would not have over crowded prisons they need to stop putting people in jail for child support make them get jobs or cummunity service until they find work (they cant pay support w/they are in jail) if they have to work in the cummunity until they find a job Im sure they would rather get paid then work 40 hours for free, and as for you would rather be shot than spend the rest of your life in prison, easy just dont break the law and that wont be a option and I dont go to church but I have raised 3 children (on my own) not breaking the law but working a honest job.

The3 one kid that got busted was shown on the news crying.

Bet he wasn't feeling sorry as the pack of animals were beating the guy.

I hope he is some big animal's wife in prison.

These kids think they are too cool to get caught like so MANY of their friends who are in prison.

Oh - duh! they DON'T think - do they?

why not privatize the prison system - give them a set budget per inmate and see how much of this touchy feel good crap goes on?

Pier munoz chinoz was a friend of mine.I worked with him for 3 years.He was not a person who liked conflict. They have taken a wouderful person away from us.I hope they all get the same as they gave to Pier except I want them to live so they can go through it the next day,and the day after that.Hope they all spend the rest of their lives in prison.

We have kicked God out of our country therefore
the government is perverse and the people are lost and full of folly. We will have to return to our righteous roots to see any change for the better.
