All prisoners have the right to visits from the outside under the 8th amendment

eleavitt

Although prisons is a place to keep criminals locked up and away from the outside world, inmates are still allowed to have limited and controlled communication with the outside world. The seriousness of the crime depends on how much outside communication the inmates get but I feel as those all prisoners have the right to visits from the outside world under the 8th amendment which is excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted....

Death penalty is preferable over life in prison without parole

jford16

I believe that the death penalty is preferable over life in prison without parole. The criminals who commit crimes that warrant life in prison such as murder, deserve the worst possible punishment. Why should we as tax paying citizens be required to fund the life of someone who has no chance of becoming part of society again?...

14 Year olds who have been convicted in adult court of 1st degree murder should be sent to adult

I agree that 14 year olds convicted of first-degree murders should do time in adult prisons. If you have the mental and physical capacity to commit or attempt to commit this type of murder, then you have the capacity to be treated as an adult for punishment....

Prison conditions in Arizona"s "Tent City" violate the 8th amendment.

Prison conditions in Arizona's "Tent City" violate the 8th amendment. The 8th amendment prohibits the government from imposing cruel and unusual punishments. Forcing inmates to live in tents should be considered a cruel and unusual punishment. Not only should living in tents be considered unconstitutional, so should the rest of the inmates living conditions. Inmates are beaten and given poor medical treatment, so poor that it has been ruled unconstitutional in the past. Tent City was ranked as o...

Should juveniles under age of 18 be sentenced to adult prison?

todonnell
crenales

I think that if need be, juveniles under the age of 18 should be sentenced to adult prison. If the crime is bad enough, such as if a 15 year old robs and gruesomely kills a man, due to the crime they should be sentenced accordingly to adult prison without alternatives such as juvenile containment or rehabilitation services....

Non-violent offenders and murderers should be segregated in prison.

knlandry
tclark16

With murderers and non violent offenders in the same area of prison, more conflicts occur. Murderers are there clearly for violent purposes and they have it in them to be more violent. The non violent offenders are in there for some other reason and have no reason to be violent towards anyone. Mixing them together would only cause problems that would not occur if they were not in the same area, like unnecessary fights that violent people get a thrill out of....

Prisoners should have to earn their privileges because when someone is given everything they want they have nothing to work towards. Without something to strive for the prisoners won't have a need to act respectively....

I think that the death penalty is more preferable for prisoners even though it is not for the general public because they would rather have the death penalty then spend their entire lives in jail without a chance of getting out....
