How dare you suggest that our prison population should perhaps give something back to society.
Do you not realize that our prisons are full of innocent people, who have been wronged by the justice system and society in general.
Let them be, allow them to enjoy the three hot meals, the warm environment, the flat screen TV's(up here in Scotland) the games consoles,the drink and the drugs.
Many of our inmates have very valid reasons for acting the way they do, if you believe the many do-gooders that society has also spawned, broken homes,unhappy childhoods, low self esteem,poorly educated. So I think it is rather unfair of you to expect the little darlings to clean the snow from our streets.
Next you will be suggesting orange overalls and leg irons, now theres a thought. LOL
