  8. Andrew G Tue, Oct 30 2012 9:44 PM

    I served 6 yrs on a 5-10 yr. sentence for Involentary Manslaughter. I just turned 18 yrs. Old at the time and got into a fist fight in school and I punched the guy in the face and it killed him. I did not meen for that to happen and I still would trade places with him if I could some how. I served my time at S.C.I. Somerset. A lot of people might say" O' 6 years is not a long time"... Let me tell you 1 day in Prison feels like a week and every day your treated like shit by the guards... Who are just over paid abusive SCUMBAGS... Don't get me wrong... Even when I was in prison, I would see some people and say to myself" Dam, I'm glad he's locked-up", because I wouldn't want them near my family. But the prisons are over crowded with mostly non-violent drug offenders. These are the people that should not be in prison. But the way politicians look at it is. If they keep the prisons full, then they gotta build more and that means more jobs. Ect. It's all about $$$$$$$ Just like everthing else in life. Politicians don't care if people get rehabilitated or not. As long as their getting paid is all that matters. So who should be in Prison? CHILD-MOLESTERS, RAPIST, MURDERERS And VIOLENT OFFENDERS. DO I FEEL I DESERVED THE 6 YRS. I DID??? ABSOLUTLEY And I feel it made me a better and stronger person as well as a more caring person for others. Thanks for reading, I hope you agree:)

  9. Angela S Tue, Nov 20 2012 3:56 AM

    To Andrew G, above: Thank you for that, and I more than agree with you. My fiancée is doing 3 to 6 but hasn't started it yet, even though he's been in jail for about 6 months. He is completely sane, and not violent or sexual in his crimes, and I don't agree with the fact that he is and will continue to be sitting in jail for longer than some actual deserving offenders when he's not a threat to society, himself, or anyone else. If politicians and other money hungry douchebags wouldn't be running the show I'm sure things would be different, maybe a little more "just." I'm glad to see you and others like you made it out okay, though because it gives me hope. Anyone who knows what it's like to deal with corrections bullshit and the strain that prison puts on people and families is thankful when they see someone come out alright in the end.
