This treatment is inhumane, this is a very real tragedy occuring in our prison system. New York has closed all of their Control Units, let us follow their lead in this area. Animals are treated with more concern than these men. Unite And Pray

The men and women in prison are treated like "animals" because they act like animals. No... actually I better take that back, the animal rights activists on this sight might get angry that I'm comparing (robbing, raping, murdering) criminals to animals. Criminals are worse than animals. fuck em.

the majority of criminals are in there because of drugs. Most are non violent. End Prohibition and most of the crime problem will evaporate over night.
