It is about time they cracked down on these kinds of criminals. What did they expect prison to be a Country Club? I hope this crack down will also prevent them from running their drug operations from jail as they have done in the past. If it were me, I would have given them a death sentence that is what drug dealers deserve if you ask me.

Let's see here - I work 2 jobs, and have enough to get by, but a vacation for us is a day at the sea shore and a stop at McDonalds on the way home. And that takes away what little gravy money there is left over.
These criminals get all of the aforementioned things, plus college educations, plus library privelidges, plus workout equipment, plus 3 square meals a day. Want to know what I think?
I think that enough food to keep them from dying.
Temperature controlled just enough to prevent dying from heat/cold.
No privelidges whatsoever - NONE.
They are in jail for a reason, and if they don't like it - too bad.
Rehabilitation? Not sure how I feel about that. I believe everyone deserves a second chance, but you hear so often of repeat offenders. Is the a high repeat offender ratio because they live better in jail than on the street? I don't know. But ALL privelidges should be taken aeay IMHO.
When I said rehabilitation was key, I meant to the drug problem. I fully agree that repeat offenders should be locked up for good. I was just saying that drug dealers shouldn't be put to death - I think that is a bit extreme.
" Conjugal visits also have been halted. "

I admit that drug dealers are a problem in society, but dont you think it is a bit harsh to give them the DEATH sentence? Rehabilitation and education are the only things that we can do to stem the drug problem.
I do agree that these people should have their flat screen tv's taken away, and any other thing that they shouldnt have. Prison is supposed to be a PUNISHMENT.
I'm a free man and I don' t get conjugal visits.

You people have so much hatred for drug dealers. Why blame them?
Some inmates may be locked up for crimes that hurt no one, and you wan't them to just be locked away without anything.
How about being more human?
