well not everyone in prison is a violent psychopath... Some people are in prison for stupid things, like say possession of one of many natural plants that big brother say we cannot have. There are lots of reasons people are in prison, one of the most common reason is being poor. You can't afford a lawyer, chances are you are going to get a court appointed lawyer that doesn't have your best interests in mind. They will do whatever they can to convince you to plea bargain, even if you are innocent. People need to pull their head out of the sand and look around. The justice system is a joke, judges, lawyers getting kickbacks from prison owners to make sure their prisons have a steady stream of people to make money off of. One of the reasons that people once convicted end up committing more crime is because of people like you, painting them with a scarlet letter. People that think like you, and think all ex convicts are scum, and don't deserve another chance to have a normal life.edit on Sun, 26 Dec 2010 12:07:09 -0600 by TKDRL because: (no reason given)

They are in PRISON! They do NOT deserve anything!!!!
This pisses me off. They are in jail for committing crimes, they do not deserve health care or an education or wages. They should have thought about that BEFORE they did their crime
You do the crime you DO the time!!
