Criminals have forfeited their rights

Dear Editor

Re: Court blasts Prison

It amazes me how government officials can complicate simple rules of law.

People who are in prison committed crimes by forcing their rights on others. They made a decision to take away someone’s right to safety, to think, to live, etc...

When someone decides to take another person’s right, he/she have no rights to be treated fairly. He/She have no rights after they decided to victimize an individual or a group of people. That person has forfeited his/her right when they decided to take someone else’s rights by force.

They do not have rights to ask for comfort in prison. Prison is a solitary place for you to think about the crime you committed and hope you repent

Each crime should fit the punishment as far as time. 

Nothing else.
