I'm from a country where we treat criminals more humanly. When we manage to do so, we get some rewards. We use less money on prisons, we lower
crime-rates and it's easier for us abide by human rights. Because that is what is at stake. Some countries allow for punished criminals to vote after
their sentence is finished, and some people don't. When it comes to human rights, one of the alternatives is the right thing to do, the other is a
breach of human rights. I think some prisons in USA needs to be renamed. If you have people locked up the remainder of their lives and force them to
work, this should be called a labor-camp. Prisons should rehabilitate people, while labor-camps let people rot while using them for cheap labor.
It is a problem for USA that they lag behind on important stuff. When I hear American officials talk about spreading democracy and freedom, I realize
that they can't even take care of their own population. How on earth are they going to solve the problems abroad? If USA don't stop living in a
fantasy-world, China is going to take over the world. Just look around you, it's happening.
