What do you think prisons are? Reformation or punishment? Solution or problem? Help or revenge?
I'd like to know your aspect about imprisonment.
In the USA prisons are profit machines. They warehouse people deemed either dangerous or undesirable at a profit. In some prisons prisoners are worked as slaves making products which are sold at market prices...the prisoners are paid less than a dollar per hour for labor.
This situation that you describe, dear Wesman, was one of the reasons I made this question. Unfortunately, this is the truth, not only in the States but mostly worldwide. Truth for which we have to be embarrassed. Thank you for your participation.
I don't know if you used to do it as a child, but when my mum made me sweep the floor of my bedroom, I was so bored that I ended up putting all the dirt under my bed, or carpet, or behind a heavy furniture... Well, prisons and mental institutions are for society something like the carpet in my childhood bedroom. A place to hide everything that bothers you but you don't want to fix, something that shows your mistakes and responsibilities. 2500 characters are not enough for me to talk about this issue, so I will just leave it there.
