134. They're still human beings.
Most are guilty of crimes, some are innocent of them. Many can be rehabilitated, many cannot. That is the nature of life, but it's still life. The reasoning for treating these prisoners inhumanely is built on the same premise as bush* used when ordering the torture of prisoners at Gitmo and Abu Ghraib. It is the belief that some life is worth less than other life and that leads down a path I don't care to take.
