I've read various comments of heartless people defending the victims of the criminals behind bars. I've read various comments of the uneducated defending the criminals. True crimes were committed, men were charged, arrested and sentenced. Some of the crimes ended the lives of people in one form or another...loss & pain is a horrible thing. The ones lost suffer no more, or so we hope. The other inmates may very well not be ideal prisoners, but life in prison is worse than any barrio, ghetto or "bad" neighborhood you could imagine. The basic needs of a human should and need to be met. The inmates should not be treated as if they're on a vacation, however our country is responsible for them, for their fair treatment, their rehabilitation and insertion back into society. SHU inmates are there for a reason, regardless of why....the rights don't change, nor do they change on the main line or a Special Needs Yard. Treating them with less than the basics they deserve makes each one in charge of these inmates a criminal themselves.
