Really? How insensitive, these guys and women just need to be given a chance to learn a different way to live their lives. Most of them have come from a place where that's all they know or have been abused in some way. Never give up on humanity. Give them opportunities to learn something that will make them succeed on the outside so they are valued and feel self worth. Of course there are those who are mentally ill and will never change but they should not be with main stream inmates. They should be in mental hospitals where they can't hurt anybody or themselves. We either pay $43,000 a year to enable them to grow into productive people or we allow them to learn survival of the fittest and return to society as gladiators who only know how to kill, steal, and intimidate to get or have what is not earned but taken. then return to prison and we the tax payers pay again $43,000 to house them to restart the cycle. Who is not getting it? None of us, we all lose.

Big business in the incarcerated, very lucrative. They exploit the uneducated, emotionally damaged, mentally ill,and addicted. We call this a Humane and civilized society. Then after release is a whole other challenge. So they go back to doing what they know.... Good job Americn voters and judicial system. Oh lets not foreget our D.A's who when falsely convict have absolutely no consequences. We the tax payers get that tab again when we are sued MIllion of dollars for taking an inocent life that can never be given back by loss of years and convicted to years in prison. I love this county for so many things but this is one dept that needs serious revising.

Well Spoken Sam! I repeat your line -- "Most of them have come from a place where that's all they know or have been abused in some way." I know this to be fact because of having worked with Juveniles way back when such facilities were called Reform Schools.

If they are inmates....no one cares...they made choices and that is why they are there. No mercy for inmates..we spend way too much money taking care of them. The families should be billed for having them in there. Close this topic and lets move on!!!!

Are you people kidding me right now! Prison is for those who made CHOICES DO WRONG, HURTFUL AND ILLEGAL THINGS. And for your information, prisoners are treated way better than elderly people in a nursing home! We pay out too much money on offenders, and no money to the elderly, so I don't really have sympathy. And not to mention of the CO's who have to work around and be threatened by prisoners. Make better choices, or tell fam to make better choices and they wont be in there.

Your comment was/is very unclassy.....people with your mindset are the main reasons why we have problems in the prison system...... Hope you get a nice 6x10 cozy cell with someone that will show you the prison way..........
We don't have problems in the prison, your son was sent there, because he became a problem. I don't apologize that you feel he needs better treatment, or you need it to be more adaptable for your needs. However he decide to do something that put him in there. People get upset because our tax money go to feed and clothed your family member who did something wrong.

For those of you who have a wrong mind set about individuals who end up in prisons....and think its okay to be a bully.

"Inmates" are in prison because that is their punishment. They are sent there to get help to be a better person when they come back to the free world so they can stay out of trouble and be successful. They are taught how to follow rules in prison with positive reinforcement. That obviously they couldnt do before, since they are in prison now. They are NOT put in prison to get punished more, that is what some....(and I say some becuase not all staff treat inmates badly) staff fail to realize this. You are suppose to be there to teach them how to follow rules and be a good role model for them to learn how to following rules. If you as staff break rules then your teaching them to keep breaking rules themselves. With saying this......good staff only give an inmate what he is allowed to have. Not more not less. Not being a bully because doing this is only teaching them to be a bully. Not bringing in contraband to them either, becuase this is not helping them learn to follow easy rules such as driving the speed limit, stopping at stop signs, get a ticket pay for it, get a legal job actual work for your money instead of stealing or hustling, being able to work around other individuals, being able to control your anger when something doesn't go right.....such things that maybe they was not guided and taught how to do when they was growing up for whatever reason.....single parent home who works all the time, or parents aren't good people themselves, or maybe the system failed them if they was taken from their parents and then the system put them in and out of foster homes that was also abusive. You never know the story behind why a person acted the way they did until you take time to open the book. "Don't judge a book by the cover". In this type of job you don't need to find out why.....you just need to give them a chance of hope by teaching them good morals. And lets not mention the few of those who are in prison that didn't comitt the crime but didn't have the money to hire an attorney so they took a deal instead of taking a risk at life sentences. Let's be better role models for those who are in prison......let's start being better role models to the children who will represent our communties in all of our future.

And by the way I am a tax payer. Just because a family member/ loved one/ friend/ is placed in prison we all still have to pay taxes. Don't punish the family members because of the inmates mistakes either! The family members as well get punished enough. Pay for phone time, travel to see their loved ones, pay for their loved ones commissary, donate supplies for visiting departments..........and pay taxes still. Most families pray to see their loved one home free again and changed for the better. No one wants to see someone they love comitting crimes and taken away for years.

Look, it's this simple, 50 Sureño Gang Bangers assaulted 10 Norteño Soldados, and a Sureño Gang Banger died. The Norte is not a gang, it's a Movement, and it's members are trained Soldados. The Sureños best could see the Norteño's worst on their best day. South Siders open your eyes and realize that the farther the raza moves North, the smarter they become. Northern Native Movement 2014
