Sometimes being locked up can be a luxurious experience. If you’re ready to do the time, go ahead and do the crime. Not every developed nation embraces America’s get-tough-on-crime prison philosophy. If they give free internet too, I'm going there. I will literally kill someone right now to get to those prisons. this is how most prisons should be. prisons in america focus on revenge instead of rehabilitation. the prisoners learn nothing from their mistakes and end up even worse after they're released.
A lot of people are saying that America should have more prisons that focus on rehabilitation instead of punishment. But admit it. Americans would probably do anything to get to prison if they were like this. Crime would skyrocket here because these prison cells are nicer than some peoples houses. People wouldn't pay the taxes for it, either. Most people in america who go to jail are drug dealers and I personally don't think we should waste time on them. Our police force is so corrupt, they kill innocent people out of spite and too lazy to go out there and find people who really need to go to prison.
