    All of us have heard goofy stories about law suits won by prisoners that garnered them some right that either comprised the safety of the prison or just added to the expense of housing them. What rights do you think they should have, and which would you take away?

    Me, I'd very much like to see an end to prisoner violence, especially rape. We seem to take it for granted in this country that anyone, especially a man, doing hard time is vulnerable to rape. But why? Can't we install video cameras and take other measures to end this vile crime?

    On the other hand, I have very mixed feelings about gain time and the like. If a person is sentenced to ten years, I think he should serve at least 8. Most parole boards seem to me to do a terrible job....maybe that needs to end as well.

    Any thoughts?

    Oh i like the rape thing being dealt out to all pedophiles. I hope it would teach them how it feels.

    1. Prisoners have the right to protection from the elements
    2. Prisoners have a right to be safe from being attacked in any way
    3. Prisoners have the right to the bare minimum nutritional needs
    4. Prisoners have a right to necessary medical care
    5. Prisoners have a right to religious exercise
    6. Prisoners have a right to legal counsel

    Other than that, fuck them. Here's an idea, don't commit crimes if you don't want to be punished.

    Are you insane?

    1. Free speech? Nope, they are told what they can and can't say
    2. Give them arms? Yeah right
    3. Ok, well doesn't apply
    4. Oops they can be searched at any time
    5. Nope, you violate prison policies you don't get a trial


    Need I go on?

    syrenn, nobody hates pedophiles more than me, but rape is a crime. It's a terrible crime. And we both know it isn't dealt out in some just fashion....we can stop it from happening and prosecute those who commit it. I say we should make prisons safer.

    Syrenn is crazy, you don't stop pedophiles by raping them. If that works why don't they just beat the shit out of abusive partners and see how that works? :cuckoo:

    No one should have to worry about rape or violence no matter what they have done.

    You asked. I have no sympathy for them at all. I would have pedophiles put in general populations, their crimes announced to the rest of the prisoners...and let justice be handed out. I don't relay care if a crime being committed against them...to fucking bad.
