    why do we care so much about prisoners rights?

    to me , if you end up doing something that gets you put in prison, one of the drawbacks should be your rights as a citizen are gone. no T.V., no awesome food, no games to play and you should have to work all the time. if we made prison life harder i think it would help deter more criminals.

    I don't. But I sure wish I had a longer answer.

    @sree1987: If they have been found guilty in a duly appointed court of law, they deserve to forfeit any rights they may have. Here in South Africa criminals are treated better, and are better cared for by the State, than most of our pensioners are. Pensioners who have contributed a life time of taxes and good responsible citizenship to their country. Sorry, but a criminal is not a human.

    As far as I'm concerned, they can rot in tiny cold damp cells on sub-standard food, and do hard manual labour. No TV, no radio, no hot water, 1 blanket, no mattress, and the list can go on and on.

    Human rights is acceptable. Criminal rights are not.

    To answer this question, I don't care about criminals, at all.

    to sree1987 and wingedcentaur,
    i completely disagree with what you are saying though yes they are human beings, that much i will give you. see, i'm an exconvict and i have spent quite a bit of time in prison years ago so i'm speaking from experience. i use to laugh when people would say it must have sucked being in jail because other then the fact that i was locked away, prison life was pretty good, better then my life on the streets at the time. the biggest problem i believe with people, is they seem to think that criminals deserve to be treated well but then why would the average person care if they are in prison or not. keep in mind that though there are a few innocents behind bars, it is not the norm and many of the prisoners have done horrible things to get there. at some point we have to say enough is enough and i think when a person ends up committing crimes that effect the life of the average person , they have given up their right to be treated well.

    Most people are in some type of bondage.  It could be financial, physical, mental, emotionally or otherwise.  When we speak out - it's like a prisioner behind bars yelling out his/her opinions of a person who we see are in a similar situation.  We see a reflection of ourselves and speak out against it.
