Name one person who has said crimes like these should not be punished.

Eat healthier? Have you ever had prison food?

But there's homeless people with mental illness that live and die in the streets every day and yet these murdering scumbags get a free ride in prison with our tax dollars.
In most, if not all, facilities, the offender has to pay for anything beyond the bed. cell, and his clothes. The TV, coffeemaker, snacks, etc. all are purchased, not given.

What people don't understand is that you cannot lock someone up in a confined space for an extended period of time. Morally, it's reprehensible (and don't give me that BS that there are no rights--people never give up certain basic rights no matter what they do.) Pragmatically, it's dangerous--as the old saw goes, idle hands are the devil's work. You would not want to be a CO at a facility where the population is extremely bored.

I deal with this type of person all day--I make a pretty good living ensuring that they get investigated, prosecuted and convicted of very serious crimes. I have no qualms about what type of people many inmates are. That doesn't change the fact that there are so many misconceptions about what really happens in prison.
