“It is said that no one truly knows a nation until one has been inside its jails. A nation should not be judged by how it treats its highest citizens, but its lowest ones.”
A prisoner is an individual person who is in a prison for attempting a crime.
We people really don't have any idea how hard prison life actually is unless we are not in the same situation, living in a cell with a tiny plastic knives and forks, food that makes us ill, a thin mattress and a blanket. Being told what days and times we can shower and have the same convo with the same person over and over again. Don't judge what we don't know, they are alone in a cell with no loved ones, so its obvious that their hyper and anger level would get more high. so in prison there should be something that helps the prisons to be calm and avoid future crimes.Prisoners are human beings too, they also have rights to live.
They should still have this stuff they still are human beings. They were all born free and equal in dignity and rights. The human being should still be treated honorably.
They don't need punishment It's better for everyone if prisoners are being rehabilitated and not punished. I am sorry if it upsets someone that a prisoner is receiving a couple of luxuries. There are way too many people that are locked up in and if we weren't so focused on punishing everyone, prisoners could actually learn to be contributing members of society. We can handle a few upset people that feel justice isn't being served so that prisoners spend less time in jail and more time bettering their lives.
Hell on earth is not conducive to "rehabilitation". Let's not forget that people get released at some point... we want people to learn from their mistakes not become sociopathic animals.
The arts and music develop fine motor and Ross motor coordination, confidence, performance skills, creativity and self expression. Many prisoner would not get the chance to be exposed to these...
