Forum Post: Prison, Confinement, Detainment

Who should be imprisoned? What group of people should be imprisoned? Do you think that locking people up is the most efficient and/or effective method of handling any issue? Finally, have you ever been locked up and for approximately how long?

I think that if you're going to answer one of these questions then you should answer all of them. Just my opinion though.

No one should be imprisoned, unless convicted by a jury of their peers.

There must be thieves guilds and the same for murderers, pedophiles, pharmacists, bankers, terrorists and recreational drug dealers including the peddlars of news media and politician's mind bending propaganda.

Guild members will spend one month plying their trade and the next arresting the competion or sitting as judges or juries of their literal peers. In this way justice will become a market commodity and thus become efficient and cost effective at last.

Any criminal not caught on duty will be taxed 90% of their profit to support the judicial operation.

Does that answer your questions?

I have to say that your idea on guild members is very interesting. Ive never heard of that idea, and not sure how I feel about it, but thats the type of different thinking we need. Nice.

Ok, spill it. You have repeatedly insinuated that you are going to be locked up. Please, tell the tale.

[-] 2 points by c1b3rshad3 (32) from Ramseur, NC 1 year ago

It wasn't really meant to be about me. All though I, of course feel personally connected to the topic. Actually, I have directly stated that I'm going to be locked up unless I'm badly mistaken. I will, however, "spill it" for you. This time around, it was selling drugs. Thank you for your interest. I've noticed that you are very active here. I enjoy reading your comments and posts. How are you doing today if I may ask?

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

I'm well, thanks for asking. How many times have you been to jail? Or have you already been to prison?

[-] 1 points by c1b3rshad3 (32) from Ramseur, NC 1 year ago

I am a level 5 for sentencing purposes (that's out of 6 possible levels). The higher the level, the tougher the sentence you will receive if convicted and the less likely you are to get plea bargains that you like. (lol.. as if you could truly "like" any of them.) I have been to jail more times than I can count. 10 - 20 maybe.. idk. I have also been in prison once. Please feel free to pm me if you desire personal conversation with me. Its not that I'm that scared to talk about myself, its just that I don't want to detract from the public area here. However, you are more experienced here so by all means, use your own judgement. Thanks.

I do not feel I am in need of the sentencing chart. Can you please tell me your intentions behind that comment? I seem to be misunderstanding. Thanks.

The criminal justice system is by and large left to the states. Hence, the ALEC issue. This would be your state. (I don't buy your story at all.) It is easier to try to see what you see rather than try to force you to examine other states. The sentencing chart provides the above and adds to the conversation of what would constitute "efficient and or/effective methods".

[-] 1 points by c1b3rshad3 (32) from Ramseur, NC 1 year ago

What "story" of mine do you not buy lol? What part do you not believe?

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Oh, the entire thing. lol

You don't know how many times you've been to jail and this time it's for dealing. You have already been to prison.

I'm having a real tough time trying to figure out why the hell you should be allowed back into society.

[-] 1 points by c1b3rshad3 (32) from Ramseur, NC 1 year ago

Well you ether believe my "story" and think that I shouldn't be let back in (actually a relatively logical point of view imo) or you don't believe my story and you think I am ?okay? to be back in society. Would you care for me to offer you evidence or proof of my identity? Not that I really feel that I should need to prove that I'm a criminal but in some ways I feel obligated to prove it now that you say you don't buy it... darn it. I actually feel quite trolled atm.. so if that's what you were going for then congratulations.

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Feeling trolled after trolling?

I'm shocked.

It is a completely and totally logical pov. Why should you be allowed back into society? You have cost the state (the people) a good chunk of change. You obviously did not learn much.

I do not feel that I've done any trolling here. I'm not here to convince you that I should be let back in society. I do not feel the need to defend myself against your implied statement, which is to me, that people (the component of society) should be removed from it along with their opportunities for any type of functional advancement on any level. I will not be responding to any more of your comments for this particular topic. I do, however, appreciate you sharing. Feel free to have the last word on the matter. Have a nice day.

Doing life on a skid bid, ehh? Do you know what that makes you? It makes you an entity that imparts a negative, a perpetual drain, on society; as our dollars go to your support you monopolize on our tolerance to victimize others.

Give me a backhoe and a bulldozer and the ability to write legislation - a "Three Strikes and You're In" - and I'll build us the cheapest jail in the country. And we will put an end to this madness of lifetime support of inhuman beings.

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Well, I guess you told me, huh?

That's right, people who cannot seem to grasp that whole don't break the law shit are repeat offenders and don't get to participate with the rest of us.

My heart bleeds.

This bleeding heart liberal is going down to the beach to sing kumbuya with the rest of my love, peace and chicken grease club.

10 to 20? Gee, what a range! You can't remember an exact number?

[-] 0 points by c1b3rshad3 (32) from Ramseur, NC 1 year ago

No I really can't. After 5 it really doesn't matter anymore. You just "know" in your heart that you'll never escape the cycle.

[-] 1 points by Theeighthpieceuv8 (-32) from Seven Sisters, Wales 1 year ago

Not at all - we need to bring back corporal punishment.

In my county inmates get bologna for 3 meals a day. They are getting sick and dying.

It's all unconstitutional. We need an Article V convention that is PROPERLY conducted, meaning we need preparatory amendment.

Sign this petition to get this authority accountable for their support for Article V.
