48. Am I the only person who actually does have any sympathy for prisoners?
Yes, there are some fucking awful people behind bars, but there are plenty of people in prison who legitimately want to turn their lives around. Even some of the most violent offenders.

And for everyone that says prisoners shed their human rights when they're sent to prison, fucking shame on you. Every human being on Earth has those rights; the right to nutritious meals, education, wages, and decent living conditions. I'm not saying give them all LCD TVs or serve them steak and eggs on Sunday, I'm saying give them something they can live safely in. Give them an environment they can make some real change in; the more people reform themselves in prison and can go on living productive lives in society, the fewer prisons we'll need, and the more productive citizens we'll have.
