  • Definately! But I don't have to go to prison to disagree with they way they are. My brother is in prison, and he is guilty, but that doesn't mean he deserves to be treated less then human!

  • I saw my very innocent DH in prison garb, ankles and wrists in chains, and yes it did. I always wonder now.

  • All I know is that the men that murdered my father are in prison and for that I am happy. I can feel safe.

  • when i was in high school i took a law class, & we spent the night in a minimum security prison (white collar crimes). it changed my opinions on a lot of things. before the trip i thought prisons were nice places, you got food, you got to work out, & educate yourself, doesnt sound that bad. other than the yummy food we had, it was a not a wonderful experience. after one night in lockdown i was convinced that prisons are not nice places haha. even tho i knew we would be leaving the next day i didnt like the idea that i was stuck freedoms, no privacy, no space. none of the prisoners messed w/ i can only imagine how bad it would be if i was a real prisoner.

  • I assume prison to be a horrible and nasty place. I can't see my view changing for much worse, but I am sure it is possible.

  • I'd be more upset if I found out they were nice places. I really have no problem with child molestors being raped by drug dealers.
