  • It is humane

    Prisoners are still human, no matter what they did. We can't just take away their rights. The human rights aren’t a privilege, they are a right that everyone, even prisoners should have. Going to prison is already a punishment for them. Also, just because they took away someone else's rights doesn't that their rights can be taken away. Two wrongs don't make a right. Innocent people are sent to jail sometimes but they still deserve rights.

  • Of course they should

    They do not become less of a person just because they’ve committed a crime. Everyone is entitled to basic human rights no matter what they’ve done, and no one else should have the right to take them away. Some people in prison might not have even committed that bad of a crime.

  • Coz why not

    See I am a criminal and my crime was stealing a shoe full of chicken from kfc so he I think I could do with so rights to get out of the prison
    Pls help your fellow human being living on the planet alongside you guys thanks if u agree

  • Classes of Offenses

    There are different classes for each offense. We can't logically grade rape by the same standards that we would theft. If we take one of there rights, then we have to take them all. Not only that but if we take their rights away then the prisoners that do get released (again there are different offenses), will enter into our society with anger and hatred. Statistics have shown that 49.8 percent of criminal's relapse and are sent back to prison (DOC's latest three-year study). Now, mind you that 95-97 percent, according to Katherine Sanguinetti (DOC Director of Public Relations), will get out of prison someday. With those staggering numbers, would you want to take away their rights and give them no chance at all to gain good character while they're incarcerated? That means that most prisoners are going to be re-released into society. If we take away their rights, there's no way they can be rehabilitated. Just because we don't like something doesn't mean we can control it. Taking away their rights is not the way to change. Programs, that's the way. We have to develop more plans to build their morals, intellect, and social skills.

  • Restore humanity plzzz

    The universal declaration of human rights are meant to apply to all humans, no matter the crime, their background or whatever. One doesn’t become a different creature or mammal if they commit a crime. Hope you reflect on this. Ndnsjjskskkskd. Idkdndjsjdjd. Didkndjxidks diisks sisoownso (Soz had to have more words)

  • People are People

    Everybody makes a mistake here and there...And yes I understand that committing a crime is lot bigger than making a stupid mistake. But they are still people and we need to treat them equally. I also understand why people say no, because they will just screw up again. But only some will. So it is technically a big stereotype.

  • U weirdos should be in jail

    First of all we need to ask the prisoners if they need rights for a reason because what if they go back to humanity happy.Why does this matter? Because if they aren't happy when back to humanity they'll commit more crimes and they wont learn anything from jail.Besides why does this survey even matter

  • No one learns

    If the police men didn’t I force the law inside of the prison/jail then they’d never learn and in a way, they’d be breaking the law. By witnessing the crime being done, they can go to jail because that would make them an accomplice. If the prisoners were put in jail/prison without any rules/rights, when they are released and their sentence is done, they’d come out and do the same harm they did in jail/prison because those restrictions were not enforced.

  • They are still human

    If you have been put in jail, you have been put for committing a huge crime. What are these crimes based upon though? Yes, they are indeed put into jail for abusing another living human’s rights. Isn’t it quite hypocritical to jail someone for doing these things then do it to them as well? Ask yourself that before scrolling down...

  • Are you joking

    They lost the right to have rights when they commited a crime. Prisons these days seem like luxury so that doesn't quite conform to a punishment. Therefore, taking away this 'human right' e.G voting will separate them from society. Also voting doesn't concern them due to them being behind bars

  • Depending on their crime

    Ok, I’m not fully saying ‘no’ but not yes either. I think if someone has done a crime more than twice or 3 times, they should not be released. But the people who have done it only once may realise what they have done and should have a chance to regain their thoughts, but maybe be put on a house arrest or have a location bandage on them. The people who have caused many are the bane to humanity - they want to do the worst thing they can, and they should be sentenced to life in prison.

  • NO they shouldnt

    Because they are criminals. Its enough that some governments spend up to 100,000 dollars a year on one inmate. If prisoners have rights then jail would barely be a punishment. You have shelter, food and water and you have a place to exercise for free. It does not make sense

  • They won't learn if the prison has so little disadvantages.

    Prison will turn into almost as good as being out of prison making people not care if they go to prison which will make crime rates go up. If prisoners have equal rights homeless people will rather go to prison then live on the streets. That would be bad right.

  • They don't deserve them!

    People in prison should not have the right to free healthcare, free college education, or the right to vote, or run for president. People who aren't in prison have to pay for the prisoner's healthcare and college education. This isn't fair to the taxpayers. People who couldn't afford that previously could just land themselves a spot in prison to get it for free. Rights belong to functioning citizens, not criminals!

  • They are prisoners

  • Inmates should be deprived from their rights

    Criminals are often homeless and can’t even afford food .... So after imprisoning them it wouldn't even be a punishment for they now have a shelter, free food and sometimes a job in jail
    Moreover, we can use the billions of dollars spent on culprits each year on more benefitial stuff like social programs or infrastructure development

  • They Deprived Someone Else of Their Rights!

    By committing a crime, lets say murder, the criminal has actually deprived that other person of their rights. Why should the criminal be entitled to rights when they sabotaged someone else’s rights? Criminal should not be allowed rights, they should be kept behind bars away from society where they can‘t harm the public.

  • They had a fair chance. They blew it.

    You have to be pretty bad to earn a spot in prison. They started life with a chance to change their circumstances for the better. They decided to take risky route. Everyone knows murder (for example) is wrong. A murderer knows that before he/she kills. They do it anyway. They had a fair chance. They blew it. Why should people who purposely broke the law have rights?
