I just thank God for watching over my family so I didn't have to visit any prison. God keep your hands over my family.

Where's the one that says "I used to visit someone regularly."? I took my foster son to visit his mom in prison 3 times a month for nearly a year. But that's been a few years ago, so I guess I'll go with "I've been a few times in the past." :)

Our youth group did a Christmas program in a prison once. It was very educational for us, and hopefully encouraging for them.
My university had a prison extension program that was very popular. It was great to see those guys get their lives straightened out--some of them joined the regular student body when they got out. Our admissions office got a kick out of saying 10% of our student body was incarcerated...and then explained why. ;)

I am referring to the public that has no experience working inside a prison. If you are a 20 year veteran, then obviously you know what it's like and my statement doesn't apply to you. Thanks for doing your time.

The way they put people in PRISON for violating probation!! for Traffic tickets these days is crazy It's a free ride for some people Free rent Free electric Free Water Freee Medication, Perfect place for people who don't like paperwork and responsibility.. Can they do some thing else with my TAX dollars. Save Prison for Real Criminals not people with drug problems, who just get it substituted with free medication

I work in the prison, back in the cells with the inmates, and I'm not an officer. Their are drugs in there, cell phones, and they use green dot cards to buy what they want. From tobacco to cell phones and drugs. They have there family or friends they to bring this into the prison all the time. Some get caught and some don't. There's footballs throw over the fence all the time with drugs, cell phones with chargers and tobacco.

Just ask my best friend... ah .. ah .. ah .. Johnny... ah...
I don't know his last name, or how to find him... I wasn't even there...

The only person I personally know in prison has been in there the last 8 years for homicide. He plead (or pleaded, if you wish) guilty.

While I believe he was capable of murder (and I honestly believe he would have done so eventually), the evidence was screaming that he hadn't done it and was covering up for someone else. The judge accepted the plea, so there's nothing I could do (they won't re-open the case). He's better off being separated from society and society's safer having him locked up, but the real killer(s) are likely still out on the streets. I try not to think about it. :(

I have visited a local county jail in the past; it was gut wrenching to go in there, but it even says in the bible that we should feed the hungry; visit the imprisoned etc., so even though it may not be fun,if we visit more people imprisoned then they may get some hope instead of dispair so when they get out, they may not be as likely to get themselves back in there if we gave them encouragement and HOPE!

46% of poll takers know someone behind bars. This is not surprising when you consider that the United States has the highest documented incarceration rate in the world. Some European countries put more people in prison per year, but their sentences are shorter so the total number of inmates doesn't increase the way it does in the USA.

And the US also has a lower crime rate than most European countries. However, we used to be a nation of laws - now we are a nation of recidivism. When you remove morality from a culture, you encourage crime.
If we had harsh sentences that made people AFRAID to go to prison, we'd see far less crime. For example, people who have to spend a weeks pay on a speeding ticket try a LOT harder not to speed due to the harsh penalty.

Actually your assumption has been proven false, there have been numerous studies showing that no matter what the harshness of the sentencing for a crime, people will still commit those crimes. Punishment seems to have no role in a person deciding to commit a crime or not, just look at those states that have the death penalty, a person will still commit a 1st degree murder without thought of what might happen to them in court.

I visited a women's jail in Guatemala where the kids joined the moms at night and were put out on the street during the day. Very sad I did not speak the language but prayed and hugged when one woman got the news of her sentence. From the sounds of things her husband committed the crime and they both went to jail. Very sad.

Capitalize the first letter of an ordinary pronoun and you get a proper noun with a swelled head.
