    • Let’s see.  They get free room and board and health care, job training..... yes, I’d say criminals are treated much better than a lot of victims.

    • OMG, Eva!...that is one such freak that should fry and lethal injection is too good...electrocution or a be-heading would serve the purpose.

    • OMG Eva!!!!

      Since I have not been either the victim or criminal I can’t say for sure.

      But I will say the criminal gets all his needs met and doesn’t have to pay for it other than being locked up.

      Doesn’t the bible say “an eye for an eye“? Or was that something else?

    • Yes, Vikki, the Old Testament says an eye for an eye.

    • Well...this is how I see it.  If you commit a horrible crime such as the one Eva mentioned.  And there is NOT DOUBT that you did it...they should take you down to the town center or the busiest intersection and hang you right there for everyone to see.  THEN....maybe...and just maybe...the next wanna be criminal will think twice before committing a crime.  I’m confident that your crime rate will go down drastically.  

      Now you all know this isn’t going to happen...but I can safely wish it.  

      To answer the question:  Absolutely they get treated better.
      I like what the sheriff down in Arizona does...with his criminals.  They work...and the men criminals where pink jumpsuits....LOVE IT.heart

    • Very much so, and what a shame that is. I would like to see punishments fit the crimes, but i have heard alot of ppl say no to that one. How badly some of thease crimes affect the victims and their families, so the person in jail can get a college degree, lift weights, get free room and board at the taxpayers expense. ok ill shut now... lol

    • Yes. Yes, I do.
      Alot of times the rights of the victim are forgotten about while protecting the rights of those either accused or committed the crime. The victim in some cases have to relive the ordeal when they receive mail from the inmate because they have Internet.
      The medical care is fantastic and better than most peoples now. I know this as fact because my other sister in law is a nurse for the federal jail.
      They have access to councilours, schooling, medical care, and they go about a daily life that has no
      Remorse in some cases.
      We dont offer any of that to the victims or victims families .
      I know human rights are important to protect. But if your in jail to me you have lost alot of your rights.
      They get movies, tv, Internet, visitors, letters to and fro, schooling, medical, counciling, 3meals, a store to purchase items, yard time and don’t have to work.
      The victims get to move freely as they please hopefully but have to repair what ever damage was done to them with their own finances.
      From petty theft up to murder someone stole something from another human being. How we have it now the victim is getting the short end of the deal.
      This I also know for I have been in the victims place.

    • OMG Eva how awful.  I never really thought about this issue, but now it’s obvious that, sadly, the answer often must be yes.

    • In a word “YES!”

      The victims have to deal with the hurt and shame while some of the criminals go free without capture or they are in the prison system living good off our tax dollars. In case of a murder they are still living a full life while the loved ones are being buried.
