Prison Conditions

Hi Vernon,

I'm from Brazil. Here, we do not have death penalty; however, our convicts live in sub human conditions inside their own cells. Here, being sent to jail is already a death sentence…. As a convict, what would you say about the way that prisoners are treated in the USA?
- Wilame Lima, Sergipe, Brazil



Wilame,

To answer your question, I think that any prison can present harsh treatment at any given time. In the history of the USA, a lot of inmates have been killed just for being leaders or just for being weak. There are men who sometimes get power stuck and those men will create situations in which blood will be spilled.

Wilame don’t be mistaken, inmates in the USA have not always had hot water and health care. Many men and women fought in the sixties to even have hot water or heat. Today in the USA, a lot of prisons are cutting work training programs. That can mean that a person has only his or her hustling jobs to look forward to once he or she is released.

Convicts that are willing to change conditions in prisons here or abroad should organize, think legally, and start writing to leaders of human rights institutions. Just remember, change comes with patience.

Peace,


Vernon

The nature of prisons means they will not be nice places.

A) They are full of the people we do not want in society.
B) They are there for punishment not pleasure.
c) You don't want to do the time, don't do the crime.

That said Prisons are also there to show right from wrong and to start rehabilitation. All prisons should be clean, (there are a lot of people in there, they should be cleaning it as a punishment!) sanitary and safe.

To make prisons safe is a tough one, how do we do it on a world wide scale. We must stop corruption! Guards can be bought, other prisoners can be bought and so can Judges and juries. If we can stop corruption and have people in charge we trust Prisons will be a safer place, though when you have a block full of murderers, rapists, violent criminals I wouldn’t like to be there.

you know who should get the death penalty? Ken Macha, that's who.

He's murdered the A's season the last two years. That totally warrants the death penalty, don't you think?
