Should prisons punish people or protect people?

I do not believe in the British prison system, I also do not like the way the media present information about the British prison system. I genuinely believe most of the people in our prisons should not even be in prison. In fact the only time I believe prison is necessary (especially long term sentences) is when we are dealing with violence or rape things that negatively effect peoples lives.

Even then I do not believe these people no matter how evil we consider them to be should be punished! They should be taken out of society to protect people not as punishment and then attempted to be rehabilitated, looked after well, feed healthy and kept safe.

I don’t like it when the media demand prisoners have “privileges” taken from them, we are not their parents and they are not naughty children. While I agree prisoners should not be allowed to watch TV and play computer games all day, I do believe they should be allowed at least a couple of hours per day watching TV or playing computer games if thats what they want to do.

The trouble is with the justice and prison system is it fails to consider important factors of why certain crimes are committed. Take shoplifting that is a crime that has ended with many people going to prison yet sometimes shoplifting can be or at least feel necessary to the person committing the crime.

Fred West (a serial killer from Britain) was raped by his own mother throughout his childhood, is it any wonder he grew up to be so misguided? The system failed to protect him from his mothers crimes (its going to happen sometimes) but the same system would have been quick enough to punish him for his own (he committed suicide before the case went to court.)

When the media are preaching for prisons to ban on computer games, television, gym access, or other normal things that we take for granted when we are free, they are failing to consider that sometimes the person in prison is a victim as well. Normally the more psychotic or violent the person is the more of a victim he or she is or has been throughout their lives.

Surely by removing “privileges” they are just make prison a more hostile place to be. 23 hour lock ups should be made completely illegal, I wouldn’t lock my dog up for 23 hour a day if not TV (at least) should be available in their room. They may have committed crimes, made mistakes or just be evil but fighting it with evil will not beat evil.

I believe losing your freedom is a high enough price to pay for most crimes, sometimes it may not feel like its enough but a society that deliberately and systematically punishes people with just the intent of just punishment not protection is old fashioned, unprogressive and as violent and cruel as anybody that they could be punishing.

 

Cymothoa exigua is a tongue eating parasite that attacks fish, Google is its human equivalent.

I cannot stand Google! I hate their hate of freedom of speech, freedom of expression and freedom in general. I hate the fact that the real alternative media is being killed off and replaced by the corporate “alternative media” which is misinformation, scaremongering and set up to make real truthers look extreme.

I believe any organization that attempts to manipulate and control what you read and watch is dangerous. When huge corporations like Google are censoring the web, removing videos, hiding videos and muting videos what they are actually doing is destroying peoples work and silencing the masses! When huge corporations like Google refuse to pay YouTubers and bloggers a fair rate whiles making billions and still avoid paying tax they become parasitic.

I think of Google like this; They have never had an original or good idea, NEVER, they have got where they are at by stealing other peoples ideas. Think about it, YouTube was not Google, Blogger was not Google, Android was not Google the only shit the ugly inbreed freaks at Google thought of was the terrible and pointless Google Plus. They have grown and turned in to a giant parasite by stealing ideas and financial rewards for other peoples work.

My old videos (some have been on YouTube for six years) are now (just started this year) being muted as the businesses (Warner Music Group, Sony, Freemantle, News Corporation, BBC) that claimed ownership of my videos due to the background music (or sometimes even fair use clips) have now decided instead of profiting from my videos they are going to mute my videos to prevent you from hearing the background music or anything else in the video.

Google is now a giant, greedy parasite consuming everything they can get their disgusting, slimy reptilian hands on and contributing nothing towards the tax system. These parasites should be highly taxed to prevent them from becoming even bigger than what they are because if they get much bigger they might end up eating all of our tongues, then we will have no choice but to be silent.
