what is the biggest difference in prisons today vs. past!
Color TV Internet all kinds of rights! It a bunch of crap, these animals are in jail, for a reason!!!!
According to a book I read called Alcatraz, violent gangs.
More freedom and luxury, yet they still kill each other...sadly.
They've gotten softer.
today's prisoners are treated like guest at a five star hotel
Treatment and rights. I would be curious about the nature and history of conjugal visits, I mean BESIDES those granted to "Bobo" when or if I land in the pokey, and get traded for a carton of Marlboro's!
Better health care, food, and entertainment. More comfortable living quarters than the average middle class person or family struggling to survive.
Now they get better diets, they get health care, no "cruel or unusual" punishments.
Many prisons today are run by private, for profit, corporations. In the past all prisons were run by the state.
