      Seems like you was a prisoner.. what do you think prison is for, its to punish people for being a criminal…. everywhere in the world prisoners are subhuman… the government here is really making you guys feel prison is a nice place to go

    Guards ‘not easy to deal with’? These prisoners have money, cell phones, TV. Wuh they want, the guards to wipe their bums? Would that make them ‘easier to deal with’?

      That’s not a prison,it’s a vacation home. There’s this one pedo up the prison who is constantly updating his WhatsApp profile picture and enjoying the freedom of social media and when I bring attention to this matter everyone turns a blind eye. How can prisoners serve time and be punished for their crimes rather than be rewarded behind bars??

        Good luck with that. No one cares. One crazy guy who has made prison his rebolving door has pictures on his social media of him in his cell with handfuls of cash and huge bags of weed. The police officers looked at it and laughed. It’s about time changes are made to make prison a deterrent. No one should enjoy their time there. Time to stop trying to make everyone happy and avoiding stepping on toes. Do what is right for the country and future generations to come. Enforce laws!!!
