Re: Susan Atikins begs for release from prisonJun 25th, 2008
The father of a friend of mine was a prison guard in dorchester and he was murdered by an inmate (who later hung himself) but that doesn't change my opinion. He was sentenced to hang for a murder he committed, which was later converted to life in prison. If the bastard was hung when he should have been, my friend's father would still be alive. Don't preach to me about your bleeding heart crap. If someone is sentenced , let him do the time. No coddling or giving them TVs etc, let them sit in a 10 by 10 cell and think about their crimes. "If you do the crime, you do the time". Plain and simple.
he sits ina 10 by 10 cell working out, becoming strong to a degree someone can only attain while working out 16 hours a day (something the guards who have to restrain him can't match)
Great plan. Now instead of someone controllable and weak you have a mini-hulk able to overpower the guards and infect them with Aids.
When did your friend die? If it was awhile ago it was probably before these reforms were put in place, if its recently its because he knowingly took risks that would still be there regardless of TV watching (and in fact be risks) such as meeting inmates in person.
Its not "bleeding heart" crap, that implies an emotional weakness
Quite frankly the only "bleeding heart" in that case would be you. Im not being swayed by emotional bias, Im looking at the cold hard facts, costs and rewards.
