Hopefully most prisoners don't come back. But you don't go to prison if you don't get accused of a crime. People that help prisoners I am glad they do. But do any give any thought to the victim they harmed? Some people seem to have more sympathy for the inmate than the victim they harmed to put them in prison in the first place.


people go to prison for "crimes" that are not crimes just a state over in any direction (ie marijuana crimes). So some "crimes" are really up for debate, and many of those "crimes" didn't have a victim other than the marijuana user who is a victim of the "war on drugs."

The person he talked about was a sex offender. His vitims how do they feel. Drug laws on the surface may not have victimes. However they cause a lot of other crimes legalizing them won't solve crimes.
