Scanner Reports 7-5-17
I was reading the Sunday Edition LA Times the other day, I get it one day a week. I read this piece by Jesse Ball about everyone should be required to go to jail once every 10 years to and these are his words...."Help ensure a quality of life where prison is sufficient for keeping human beings." I have been in some ugly places in my life and I never want to go back and I stay good to ensure my freedom from those places. At this point in time there are many people out there that would like it if me and others like me were locked up to ensure their insanity as our country is in a very strange place right now. I disagree with Jesse Ball on getting locked up every 10 years or so as some folks cannot handle even one day of being locked up and it could be a life changing event for some in a negative way. However for those who are in the business of justice, I do believe it would be a good thing, though not a lot of time and they should get paid for it, unless of course they broke the law. That is what prison is punishment for breaking the law. The quality of life in prison and jails is not good, many places are not up to par, some are downright torture to be in. Though I would like to see positive change, I doubt there will ever be. Prisoners are sentenced to time, not torture, though in America I think it's time and torture and I don't think it's going to get better anytime soon.
