Society labels inmates that have done a lot of time as hardened criminals. I disagree with this idea. After you have done a certain amount of time, you get softened. The long time inmates are the ones that keep situations calm. They are the ones that the staff trust. Ask the people running the prisons and they will tell you. We are not as helpless as we think. We are the voters in this state. We can get any law changed that we don't like with enough support. Will you help right the wrongs that you see?
