Think of it this way why do we provide three FREE meals to criminals when we can’t even provide one meal to homeless people on our streets. It’s almost as if society is punishing the homeless and rewarding the criminals. Why do we do this? Why can’t we take even one meal out of those who are convicted and give it to those who are less fortunate and way more deserving. Sure prison food is disgusting but i’m sure a homeless person on the street corner isn’t going to care what it tastes like.
A few years ago homeless shelters where the homeless would sleep and eat were shut down because the city of kitchener could not afford to keep them running. I remember this because my biological mother is homeless. I remember her specifically saying that she wanted to go to prison in the winter because she had no other place to go. Why should citizens who to the wrong path in life be made to feel this way. Instead of shutting down homeless shelters why doesn’t society take from those who were convicted and give to those who are innocent.
We as a country should definitely make prisons tougher on our prisoners. I think if we did this it would definitely cut back on the amount of people revisiting prisons. I think it would also help the country pay for more beneficial things. Now in no means am I saying prison is a nice place all i’m saying is it’s not as bad as it should be.
