What is your suggestion as to how prisoners should be treated while in prison? What kind of living arrangements should they have?
Well first they need to stop the abuse, the rape, the gangs, the easy access to drugs, there is a lot. I can't do it one post nor can I sum it up simply because the problem is very much an institutional problem.
But fixing the problem won't win support because the public very much favors mistreatment of prisoners because anything else is seen as coddling. I have no sympathy for prisoners, but I think they do deserve a better standard of living than an overcrowded, drug-ridden, and violent environment.
If I wasn't doing neuroscience, I wonder if I'd be into public policy and trying to turn these systems on their heads.
