This is why I favor humane prison conditions.
Single cells, reasonable medical and dental care, safe environment, education and work opportunities for the well behaved, an hour of sunlight each day.
There are innocent people in prison. At the very least, they should not be subject to abuse.
Indeed there are. Imagine even spending as little as six months in prison on bogus charges. For many of us, a "short" six month stint behind bars is long enough to cost someone their job, deplete their savings, get their car repossessed, lose their home and all their belongings through foreclosure, and destroy their credit. Imagine trying to repair all of that once released? And those are just the financial costs. I hope these guys sue and collect big.
There are innocents in prison?
Not from what I’ve read around here. Especially if they are accused of an awful crime like child molestation. Them, around here (and to be fair just about everywhere in society) they are not only guilty as hell but they should basically be executed by the prison inmates upon arrival. Before or after the trial, it doesn’t really make a difference.
Sometimes to satisfy bloodlust you have to break a few eggs.
