The ACLU is fighting for your right to look at porn should you ever find yourself in a South Carolina prison.

      Of course, if you've got private organisations or individuals profiting from the inc

  • I get it that we should treat our prisioners better than the rest of the world, or at least better than most, however...

    What the FUCK ever happend to prisons being for PUNISHMENT? I hear all you folks out there saying "oh, but we're trying to rehabilitate these poor folks". Personally, I'm not for rehab. The fact that a prisoner has a better shot at getting a college education than the less well off members of society just sickens me every time I think about it.
