I just find this story, the most OUT THERE story I have ever read in a longtime.
this ADULT cryin like a 2 year old (the 2 year old knowing better then this adult) knows that when they have misbehaved Mom/Dad takes T.V time away. This grown man he needs to be laughed at for even making such a complaint!!
(not saying he didnt have good parents and Im not gonna put down no ones mom or dad)
he gettin 3 HOT MEALS aday, A bed to sleep in, he is in shelter from the cold or heat, they have computers and Librarys, there collage is FREE in prison too, OMG and gonnna cry over the T.V.

I gotta Cry HARDER everytime I look at my paycheck
and YOU GET all this before I could even FEED my OWN FAMILY out of MY PAYCHECK!!!! Because MY TAXES as others Are paying For Things Your Getting That WE CANT AFFORD for ourselves or more for our CHILDREN!

Maybe they should offer them the BIBLE and let them think about why they are there and where they WILL be if they do not change their path. This should NOT be a choice, it should be a requirement DAILY!!!!!!!!!!

My Mother is a good cristian lady. Her and her church go to diffrent jails and such, to preach, play church music, its sad that alot of those people prison "swear to being a christian until there back on the street" its a nothing way of them getting what they need or want while in prison.

i do not think they should have no privileges, and if thay are child molester or rapist's cut there balls off, that would stop a lot of that shit, i think they need to realy see it hard. they need to set in a little dark room all by ther self, and think about what they did.they need to be punished for what they did. no tv no worm place to sleep, just look homeless people see it harder then they do , and to me that is just wrong, and all that good food they eat is comeing out of the tax payers pocket, wrong wrong wrong.

I dont think the inmates should have any privileges at all what so ever....they done the crime they need to do the time and they shouldnt have anything nice to help pass that time...it makes me sick because half of the ppl you hear talking about prision say well i wouldnt mind it to bad...free housing,free food,showers and all that shit...its not free to us when were paying out the ass in taxes takin care of them when we cant even afford to take care of our own families...i think they need to sit in there cells without any fun activites at all including smoking...they shouldnt be able to do anything but eat sleep and use the bathroom thats it! And for the ones thats in prision for killing innocent ppl or hurting innocent children they should be glad that there even breathing let alone bitching about not having tv!!!!!
my two cents

You know in other countries if a man commits a sex crime they have two options..(this is true)
They can either be chemically or physically castrated.
We (US) oppose this because we think it is cruelty.
I think some politicians are nicer to their animals than they are to human beings!
