Umm...makes me wonder are they poor prisoners? Should i pity them? Well for the sake of humanitarian purpose i still feel they need warm clothing just like anyone else.

Department of Corrections should have take care of this for the first place but no wonder they didnt since CR already have shortages of blankets this year. :o

Anyone who has worked in a jail or prison or voluntered to help educate inmates realizes that very few of them are "evil". They are mostly victims of a rough background or an impulsive decision or bad luck. There aren't a whole lot of Charles Mansons in there.

Most of them certainly don't deserve to freeze to death.

.......of a rough background or an impulsive decision or bad luck.

most people who choose to break the law know exactly what they are doing and the risks they are taking , their only bad luck is in being caught.

millions of people from rough backgrounds never commit a crime in their life.

They are mostly victims

i always thought that the people beaten , robbed , cheated , raped , and killed were the victims , not the ones doing the beating , robbing etc.

I agree with you on anything violent, but only a very small proportion of criminals are there for violent crimes. Most have been convicted of property crimes. :o

Never drove after drinking? Never thrown garbage on the street? Never cashed a check without enough funds to cover it? Never jay-walked? Never drank when they were underage? Never smoked a joint? Never smoked a cigarette when they were too young? Etc.

Everybody has commited crimes. :o

drink drivers , if caught , get severely punished , at least in europe , and i suspect in the usa.

jay walking underage drinking and smoking a joint are misdemeanors that rarely affect others , and not many countries jail these offenders , in those countries that do have draconian penalties for misdemeanors , well the penalties are well known and the choice to commit those misdemeanors is up to the culprit , knowing full well the risks they take.

as for property crimes , like vandalism , robbery , car theft etc. those crimes have an affect on others who for no fault of their own suffer losses , and the victims (and the rest of society , as potential victims ) are entitled to see the perpetrators punished , preferably by being removed from society ( with blankets provided !! ) for a while to ponder on the errors of their ways and make them think twice before re offending.

i make no apologies for belonging to the "hang 'em high" brigade.

So everyone commits crimes, but some much worse than others.

Most of them deserve to live in a heathy environment as long as they are under the supervision of the state.

Most prison systems have a "duty of care" towards inmates that they are legally bound to uphold.

I repeat, the sentence is to a term of incarceration, not a term of physical suffering.

Whether they deserve it or not is irrelevant, if we support a system that breaks the law and abuses or neglects people then we become like them.

Obviously they dont have a duty of care. The pics show a new expensive prison so where are the clothes and blankets as they would have been catered for? Or did the gear or cash go else where.

Their family or friends can accomidate the scun bags.

Most have been convicted of property crimes. What a statement. Is this not a serious offence.

The homes they rob and damage averages around 200,000 Bart. It causes heartache for the victims which sometimes takes months to get over the trauma. The loss of gold, Laptop, clothes, DVD. cameras. leather goods including clothing. Most dont have insurance and have to payfor the repairs to the doors, windows, roofing and any other point of entry. The kids of the family go through trauma as well for the loss of musical instruments and computer games etc. Give me a break. :o
