Scott prison has to be a punishment. If they get treated better when they are in and have better things what is the deterrent for them to stay out. I am all for educating them for a vocation or whatever but when they start living better than I do its a joke. I know you have worked with some inmates mostly juveniles I believe (correct me if I am wrong please) and I am related to many felons, so you know just like I do prisoners run the prison. That is a scary thing and it is hardly punishment. Take my uncle who is/was a prominent member of the AB in a very rough prison, when he got out he told me it is easier for him to make money and get what he wants behind bars than it is on the outside with a legit job.
Some of the people in prison are just scum, period and should be treated as such. It would make it easier on us if they would just put child molesters in general population and let the natural progression of things take place. That way that cant appeal there way to a ripe old age.
