Opening an inmates mind won't lead them to rehabilitation. They don't have a "right" to be entertained. Providing them with incentive to learn a skill or trade leads to rehabilitation. In the end, they have to want to do something different in their lives. Just having any book they want doesn't do that.

this is disgusting...most people that are incarcerated are there for nonviolent and victimless crimes, which should not even be crimes at all...ive been caught in the fascist system before, and without books to pass the time i would have literally lost my mind...if you think that this is ok, you should think about doing the world a favor and giving yourself an extra hole in the head...
So people shouldn't go to jail or even be punished for stealing? Give me an example of a victimless crime that shouldn't be a crime because I really want to know. Also you can't say drug usage, there are plenty of victims there ask anyone on the border.
