Please understand that when i say this i MEAN it . YES we NEED JAILS. yes there are some terrible mistakes that happen , NOTHING is perfect . there ARE cops who are criminal and guards too. when i was locked up[ or on street I NEVER ONCE met someone who was not guilty . I never once met someone who was not willing to re-offend . I never once met someone who changed or didnt justify what they did. ME INCLUDED , even now 10 years out of trouble i am capable of doing same things. I have realized that my temper is a problem I have learned strategies to deal with it such as . I am much more removed from sociewty these days i work , go home be with my wife and kids , or head into woods for peace and quiet. I was lucky in that my lovely wife understands and somehow has ca calming effect on me too. I remove myself from situations that start to make me feel the way i do before i would "snap" avoidance . essentially avoidance is my strategy. anger is my burden in life , it can be productive , but all consuming at times too. Majority of criminals are EXTREMELY GOOD MANIPULATORS. its not even concious thought . its just what they do . if u meet violent offenders 99% will be violent until death . their reasoning for doing it is good to kno too , if they just did it randomly then they always will . rapists will too , in jail sex offenders DO NOT FEEL BAD , they TRADE STORIES ABOUT VICTIMS , then ACT SORRY WHEN CHAPLAIN IS AROUND or LAWYER etc. POLICE are needed . whats more is that the media is trying to re write reality , people can talk stats , and or show examples of so and sos crime etc. but there is even a difference along racial lines and this is not about hate . if you go into jails that are predominatly white there is less violence , they are much more relaxed , in jails here in canada if its majority african then violence, knives are normalized . even the phones become "owned " by african cliques who hang them upside down and force everyone not of the clique to use 1 phone . or u have to ask permission. in toronto i even got aklong with them , i didnt have proiblems , so please understand that this is not hatred ormsomething speaking rite now. its just REALITY. what im trying to show u is that the criminal still tries criminality in jail . violent criminals laugh when someone gets seriously hurt , they try to provoke younge3r violent criminals into action . thdy plan future crimes all the while acting like angels in court . when i first got arrested i was busted with an ounce of marijuana , i had it separated in 4 bags bcuz i wanted to sell 3 quarteers to pay for mine plus make spending cash . my lawyer suggested to me that i had separated it so i had some for the entire month , even the lawyers help to facillitate crime . the media does , even politicians . when you good educated people went to school u had a friend who became criminal , he seemed like good guy right ? but how many time were you scared or intimidated or bullied ? how many times do you walk down a street and see a group of guys standing here or there and you avoid ? now imagine they were free to come to your neighborhood or house and do all the things they wanted any time they felt like it ? imagine a REAL HATE filled person holding you fathers down while friends of theirs assault your wife or kids < imagine your wife crying and you concoling her telling her theres is nothing to worry about because some one broke in and stole everything whikle you were at work . how do u tell her shes safe ? we live in funny times where reality is scewed in the media and online . politicized etc. there are reasons this is happening . even when things are dressed up in good flavors of morality and being a good person they serve agendas . the universities and coplleges are filled with profs who are hired because they tow this line , ensuring students think the toughts they want you to think . do not fall into this trap . yes mistakes are made , yes there are 1 out of 100 who change wor try to stop , yes they have sad back stories , but make no mistake my friends bad people exist , and they want nothing more then to take everything from you, terrorize you, rape , hurt and kill . this is very true and if anarchy reigned so many of you who do mean well woukd be its first victims. we NEED TOUGHER LAWS, TOUGHER SENTENCES etc, i say this knowing one day i might have to do more time , i promise you and i wish it werent so , but rough men are needed to keep the wolf at bay.

Intriguing. Where is this place?Elindeque1992 wrote: ↑September 21st, 2023, 2:24 pm Where I am from, it does not matter what crime you commit. You just pay a few hundred dollars or less, and then you get released. If the world watches, that is the only time they do not get away with it. So no, it does not always help to have a prison.

Conversely, countries could make a "human rights" issue of the matter. Declare that THEIR criminals deserve a "second chance" in the country of the miscreant's choice. The last time I was in Italy it was pretty apparent certain lands to the south were quietly doing that anyway.

Yes, bad people exist. Your post illustrates vividly the need for prisons. It's hard to see any other way. Punishment is one motivation for prisons. But for me, locking violent criminals up it's less about punishment and more about preventing harm to others. There may be lots of things that have contributed to a person becoming a violent criminal. It may be possible to address some of these causes so that recidivism is reduced. But some violent criminals seem to have been born that way and no amount of punishment will have any long term effect on them whatsoever. The only place for them is prison.
