Personally, depending on the crime, I think some people are over-sentenced and some are SEVERELY under-sentenced. Take animal killers for instance. Many times people toture and kill numerous amounts of innocent animals and they only receive probation (Very Violent Crime). Then, someone that participates in safe-cracking can receive 15-25 yrs in a maximum securtiy prison (non-violent crime, in my opinion).
As tax payers, we know that the room and board for each inmate comes out of our pockets. There are several people with life sentences that continue to be vicious and reak havoc within the prison walls. Should these problem causing inmates be re-sentenced to lethal injection, or should we continue to support them until they die naturally or another inmate kills them?
Psychologically, does being "locked up" cause more harm than good to the inmates that will be released back into society? Take into consideration the ones that were placed in max. security facilities with inmates serving life sentences.
Oh, and if you agree that animal killers should not go unpunished, please sign my petition for a local issue here in South Carolina:
I, too, say that teaching your kids about satan and burning in hell should be considered child abuse. It causes severe emotional anxiety and the fear of satan torments some people for the rest of their lives.
It does them no good, not even if they divide themselves. If they divide themselves, the dangerous ones know better whom they should pick on first. They should be completely separated and those that cause trouble should be isolated based on what they've done and if they do it again, isolated more. There is really no one way to deal with prisons and inmates, but we certainly can do better than now.
Why was your father in prison?
O, I meant they divided themselves into cliques. They were still around eachother's violence and hate. I agree that it is unacceptable for them to be mixed in with eachother. If one thing is for sure, the life-sentencers should be seperate from all others.
