Before you accuse someone of being inside a real prison for being wrongly accused... let me ask you since you laid down such a great line. Have you been imprisioned after being wrongly accused? if not what give you the right to call them out?
Please look at the disjunctive connector: "or" that I chose very carefully...I have both been accused of an offense that I didn't commit, and I have been in Sing Sing...The subject matter was unrelated, but the point stands. Nobody who has been in a real prison thinks conditions are favorable to the prisoners...Sure, some get TV etc. but the things they really need to learn how to get along in our society? In terribly short supply...Also, the power of the state is unbelievable when you get accused, and folks of modest means really need to sell everything they own, and borrow tons of money to defend themselves. Frankly, Public Defenders are some of the best lawyers ever, they just have no budget to get great expert witnesses, do investigations, and have no arrest authority to threaten other witnesses with...Like the prosecution can.
And, who am I calling out? People who think that prisons are country clubs? That's kind of a no brainer...If you can't leave, period, that loss of liberty sucks. Ever heard the phrase "Gilded Cage?" It is still a CAGE!
And, anybody who thinks the "system" is skewed toward the criminals doesn't understand the idea behind the system. The idea is to hold the STATE, the GOV'T, the real power of the police and courts to a VERY high standard. Remember, a long time ago, guilt was often determined merely by character testimony...Not very reliable. Now, just because a cop says so, and a prosecutor agrees, it is not enough to be sent away to lose your liberty. The gov't has to "prove" it, and this country is one of the few places you can actually hold the gov't to that principle...Many other places, if you get accused, you are guilty, whether you did it or not...
