Thanks, Big Jason and Dre.

With 80%+ of the UK public against the vote for inmates, I was in a tight spot, but I tried to stick to my points.

I agree, prison needs to be more rehabilitation than punishment. It's hard for one to imagine the emotional and mental damage one has after prison life, unless of course you've lived it.

you're a great spokesman for the disenfranchised it's too bad we don't have as many people with your intellect and communication skills that have a first hand experience with the injustice of most westernized correctional institutions.

Taking away the right to choose means you fear choice and with that line of thinking there is an inevitable end. Good work brother.

I agree with all posts-good presence on camera, good maintaining composure. The thing that keeps coming to my mind is, why is a path of rehabilitation used so effectively with troubled youth-stop focusing on what's wrong and raise the bar of responsibility, which works in failing schools-not used in prisons? Here in PA the sentencing judge in my son's case is now being sentencing, thank God, for using a kids-for-cash scheme to put more bodies in juvie. People were screaming about that, rightfully so, yet in prisons, essentially the same thing goes on, and it's for the public benefit. We turn a deaf ear. Sue O.
