    Prisoner Privilages

    There is a big stink about backpack murder Ivan Miliat being given a colour TV and a toasted sandwhich maker as a "reward" for not trying to attempt kill himself or trying not to escape.

    The big uproar is that he get's a "reward" while the victims families have to suffer and live with what happened to them and have questioned whether or not this trying to help him or not. The priviliages have since been suspended, but of course there have been cases about Brady Murdoch (the convicted killer of British backpacker Peter Falcano despite a body has never been found and he protests his innocence) getting a radio or other prisoners getting newspapers. They were unsurprisngly of the opinion that they do not deserve anything.

    And in Queensland recently there was a case of prisoners trying to get hold of CCTV footage, but the Minister of Police Judy Spence gave them a quick and swift "No way".

    Thoughts?

    A colour TV and a toasted Sandwhich maker! Have no problem with the newspapers, but i think that's going a bit to far.

    The basis for an argument either way is based on the argument is prison punishment or rehabilitation. If it is a punishment and revenge for the crime, then you would think they shouldn't be allowed to have any of these comforts.

    But if prson is to rehabilitate, then you wouldn't think such things are an issue and may in fact aid in their rehabilitation.

    This is all rather simplistic though.

    Newspapers are fine, something to read I guess and there is always so-du-ku to try and figure out

    The responses from Corey (if he is online anytime soon), Dasa, Mr SeanFuller, and CC are the one's I'm interested in.

    If people knew half the stuff that inmates in gaols got they would be astounded...

    In my 5 years working at Long Bay in sydney, it was a regular occurance for inmates to have daily activity time which involved things like playing PS2, computer games, and watching the latest release movies..

    Also people in the Sexual offenders wing were also part of a program which involved them having private time to view ****ographic films.. These are supposedly used to help them get over their problems..

    Like i say some of the stuff that the public do not know would shock alot more then what they do know..

    I don't have a problem with it really. It's not like he's getting strippers and beer in his cell.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Agree.

    Now, where are these "strippers and beer" you speak of?
