i agree to whatevr this man says anytime in his entire life of living
Not all of then are hardend thugs. Think about all the things that can land you there. There is a shit load of coruption in our modern judicial system
You are assuming that criminals (those that commit felony crimes) are completely sane individuals who are exactly like every other law abiding individual, and that these individuals if left to their own means would be able to fix their behavior problem. You’re approach is similar to criminalizing drug addicts; it is unfair to the individual who has a problem, and you show no compassion to fix this.
Living in prison cannot be all what it is cracked up to be, because if it was you’d have gone and robbed a bank and gotten your own ass thrown into “Disneyland.” If all you value is cable TV, internet, and a clean toilet, what’s stopping you from having some fun, going on a criminal spree, and ending up being provided for by the state?
If there was a program that assured 75% of all criminals that entered the program would exit as citizens capable of living a moderately acceptable lifestyle (one where the individual will no longer commit felonies) would you deny it funding? I agree with you in that the way prisons are currently set up is ineffective, but I would be more than willing to pay to help out individuals who have trouble living in our society find a means to redeem themselves, and get out of prison. I do not think that digging someone a hole in the ground, and giving them a chair to think about what they’ve done would do any good at all, to me it is morally disgusting.
There are a lot more factor’s in criminals’ lives that dictate their fate than just their own personal decisions. You mentioned DNA, a person’s genes, upbringing (neighborhood and family influence), as well as education are at least three factors of influence which a criminal has no choice over. How can you punish someone for something they are not entirely responsible for? You don’t. You can reform, you can assist, you can provide, but you do not punish these people, and you most certainly do not fry them on the chair. We can be mature enough now not to stoop to capital punishment. And we can be mature enough to help those in need.
Then go fuck shit up and live a life of luxury in the big pen. i can't believe you’re jealous of people removed from society.
and you're still a dumbass. Let us know when you make it into the big house, and you're living it up.
You are under the impression that if you instituted the death penalty for all triple offenders, things would end up being a lot cheaper.
Unless you are removing the individuals right to a trial, and completely removing any sort of humane treatment of these individuals up to their actual death you will have to pay more of your "hard earned fucking money"
In 2005 a study by the LAT found that California spent on average $250 million on each death row inmate executed. In relation to life sentences, this was an extra $114 million a year beyond the cost of keeping an inmate with a life sentence with out parole.
Your reasoning is childish, your argument is childish, and what you are proposing is an immature outdated "solution" to modern criminal punishment.
