I can see how our tax money that goes into our military helps us by protecting us right.
But why does our tax money also go to giving this criminals free food. And at times free cables and radios for them to pass the time. They re in there because they did something wrong. So like i said with the military we pay taxes to be protected right. So now are we paying taxes to pamper this murderers and child abusers, so they can get comfterable and very time they feel like getting some thinking time with a free meal and tv they can just commit another crime?

Tax income spent on 'pampering' the prisoners is not out of any love for the prisoners. It is out of Realpolitik. If prisoners behave, they are rewarded with some of the enjoyments they would have outside the prison. If they misbehave, they do not get access to them, and could be punished. It is a very simple system designed to promote order in prisons.

As a prison governor, would you rather spend $100,000 on luxuries for well-behaved inmates, or $150,000 on paying compensation to the families of guards killed in prison riots and repairing the prison?

Every one has the right to food.
My suggestion would be for those who can work that they would be forced to work with out pay check to account to the comunity.
