WHAT'S IN A PRISONER

  • Eight years in prison proves several types of personalities in an environment of unprediction and uncontrollability, then comes four levels of prisoner traits;

    1.   Bullies of threats, anger outburst and control tactics.

    2.   Hypocritical justifiables who thrive on split personalities.

    3.  Reserved, secluded, secret, and the mysterious.

    4.   Intellectual, cool, calm, and the passive.

    Unfortunately, prisons in some locals do not separate maximum offenders from those having lessor crimes or sentences. Through the turmoil, the intellectual prevail while the low caliber type enjoys extended stay and free trips back to prison lifestyle.

     

    THE MENTALLY ILL

     

    Take consideration for the mentally ill or first-time offenders of minor; drug offenses and traffic violations, as well as petty thievery. Any non-violent or same repeat crime being incarcerated adds to the largest over crowding of prisons in U.S. history. Let no maximum offense for threat/force/violence, including in-prison bullies of same participate in early release good conduct credit awards.

     

    THE CIVIL COMMITMENT

     

    Civil commitment after serving prison time for a sex offense acts as a second sentence, after prison sentence is completed. If sex offenders are judged and tried again for the status of mentally ill and received a second term in a mental facility, why couldn’t they have been adjudicated at time of conviction if the mental health professionals claim sex offenders of certain sex crimes need sending to a mental hospital. If abnormal behavior/mental defect is attributed to an offense, those offenders should be sent to the proper incarceration/facility at time of sentencing and receive one sentence, not two separate sentences for the same offense.
