This is a great story. A nice refresher from the majority of stories you hear about inmates.
Personally, I'm VERY harsh on prisoners I think should be there. I believe in HARD TIME, which doesn't really exist anymore. The only hard part is
the prison gang based life style....which by the by wouldn't exist nearly as much if inmates were actually doing "HARD TIME". It should be all hard
work, education (if you want it), and punishment for slacking off in either. And I also think horrible violent crimes like rape and murder......if
there's 100% undeniable evidence....it should just be automatic and very timely death penalty.
All that being said though......I also think there are TONS of people put in prison who shouldn't and do not deserve to be there. The article is
specific to mention these prisoners from the story incarcerated there for non-violent crimes. For me, regardless of their crime, they'd be rewarded
for going above and beyond. But depending on what their crime is, would dictate the reward.
If they're in there for weed, which I don't think people should be imprisoned for in the first place, I'd just flat out release the guys on the
grounds of paying their debt to society for potentially saving some children's lives. If their "non-violent crime" was more along the lines of
burglary.....welll, they deserve to be there and serve their time. But they'd basically be "granted a wish" in terms of prison life. Like someone
said........huge meal of their choice would be nice. Hell, maybe even put them in some civies and take them out for burgers and wings at HOOTERS
(unbeknownst to the other prisoners obviously). Maybe even smokes and skin mags.
