The prison system as is is inhumane, does not work in terms of intended purpose, and preys on impoverished people, turning them into cheap slave labor.
I don't know the solution. Norway's prisons are nice, but people say it's too nice. Prison should theoretically serve three purposes: punishment, rehabilitation and relocation. Prisoners should be able to rejoin society if deemed fit, no matter the crime, but they should be motivated to not reoffend, and they should be placed in areas that, if they escape, is isolated from civilization enough to not put people in danger.
Prison rape should never be a thing. Ever.
also hurts a person ability to get a job.
I’ve heard good stories about Norway’s prisons. We don’t have Norway’s criminals though...
Let them rot I say. You want to become an animal then live as one too! We are WAY too kind in my opinion. Prison is a sign of pride for a lot of these career criminals and it’s not fitting to the crimes.
Violent crimes need to be punished much more severely and non violent maybe a little less. I want them to seriously consider just being a good person before they commit to their plan and lifestyle of crime.
you dont know every person situation or their brain chemistry and who the hell takes pride in being in prison. I watch documentaries all the time about how they want to improve their life if they get out of prison.
