Let’s put the seniors in jail and the criminals in a nursing home

Let’s put the seniors in jail, and the criminals in a nursing home….

  • This way the seniors would have access to showers, hobbies, and walks.  
  •  They’d receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment , wheel chairs etc.
  • They’d receive money instead of paying it out.
  • They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly if they fell or needed assistance.
  • Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.
  • A guard would check on them every 20 minutes, and bring their meals and snacks to their cell.
  • They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.
  • They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counseling, pool, and education.
  • Simple clothing , shoes, slippers, P.J.’s and legal aid would be free, on request.
  • Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard  — with gardens.
  • Each senior could have a P.C. a T.V. Radio, and daily phone calls.
  • There would be a board of directors , to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct, that would be strictly adhered to.

The “criminals” would get cold food,  be left all alone, and unsupervised.
Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week.
Live in a tiny room , and pay $5000.00 per month and have no hope of ever getting out.

Justice for all.

Thanks Gene

    The problem is, the prisons get all that work done by making the prisoners do it. Seniors aren’t physically capable, nor can they survive the stress and deprivation which keeps the prisoners working.

    Prisons really aren’t “club med”, folks.

    Oh boy, I’m all for this. The coddled mutants that don’t want to abide by the law of the land should be on some type of chain gang from dawn to dusk too. Actually could plug that d@mn oil hole with a couple of hundred that are sitting on death row and that would cut down more costs. Steak and lobster for the seniors, they worked for it and deserve it, and chitlins for the scum.

  • Donna

    that sounds like a good idea

    “Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard — with gardens.”

    Do prisoners get private rooms?

  • crispy

    Oh, Ralph! Stop being realistic! You are griefing my ‘happy’! :)

    So am i to assume your seniors in America are treated like shit just like they are in Australia?Shame on us all.

    I wonder if there are more prisoners than there are elderly in retirement homes? Cause the primary reason prisons have all that stuff is because of politicians trying to buy the criminal’s votes, but the elderly can still vote, so why don’t the elderly have any of that? Maybe because they’ve already set their views and aren’t gonna change? *shrug*

    I never did understand why prisoners got TV, computers, etc. If their families bring them to them, fine, but let them pay a small electric bill to run the device. Certainly the elderly will not be helped by federal funds until people start really screaming and hollering and paying attention to who they vote for. As we baby boomers start needing these facilities, hopefully there will be enough of us to make sufficient noise.

    I rarely comment but this article was actually posted at my job and I took it down. As bad as some nursing homes are believe me not all prisons are as noted. And not all criminals deserve to be treated as animals. Theres a fine line here and they cant be compared. My son has to share a medium size room with 58 inmates, they share two phones, 4 showers and 4 toilets. No theres no doors, no privacy. Its been 110 out and they have no air, no windows only two fans amongst the men.he rarely gets to go for walks or even make it outside. Theres no PC unless he asks to go to the law libary which it could take weeks. No radio, the TV is programmed and all must share. As far as medical its not free and if they think its not serious you are left to “deal”. My son cut his hand and they wouldnt even send him to have it checked out. As far as money if you dont have anyone sending you money you cant buy anything. I could go on and on but I hope you get my point not all jails are sunny and glamourous. Mother with a son in prison!!!!

      I’m sure you’re right Leanasway, and my heart goes out to you. The article emphasizes the stereotypical thing the general public hears about the new modern prisons and all the ‘benefits’ the prisoners receive. I’d still rather take my chances on the outside. Take care.

      Your son and you are in my prayers. Chin up, hon. Be there for him now and when he gets out. xox

    I am a volunteer at a local prison. And, I can attest that this e-mail is a hateful, hate-filled fiction. Stop and think!
    * WHAT hobbies? And, where the frick do you think inmates WALK?
    * WHAT free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment? In NJ, if an inmate gets hurt – even on the job – and has to go to the emergency room, he has to pay $5 for it. Out of his salary, which is usually 50 cents an hour. And, he usually only works 20 hours a week.
    * WHAT receive money instead of paying it out? huh? Does some out there think that an inmate who needs insulin, gets paid to get it? huh?
    * WHAT constant video monitoring? Does anyone think correction officers simply sit around and watch each cell? How many guards would you need for that? DOES THAT EVEN MAKE SENSE?
    * HELLO! clothing washed and ironed and returned to them? First of all, who do you think washes the clothes? Some outside laundry? And, secondly, do you think inmates get back their own clothing? Did you ever think that there’s a reason why the copy-cat gangstas wear their pants so far away from their crotches?
    * HELLO! A guard would bring their meals and snacks to their cell? Like the pizza delivery boy?
    * HELLO! They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose. STOP AND THINK. a SUITE??? And,just how many do you think we have in our prisons? WHO BELIEVES THIS STUFF?
    * HELLO. a library, weight room, spiritual counseling, pool, and education? I hate to use the phrase “piss-poor”, but our jails are not set up to send guys out better than they came in. The one thing we should be doing is trying to educate anyone we can. And, don’t tell me we shouldn’t give guys in jail a free education when guys on the outside have to pay for theirs. Because no one complains about athletes getting THEIR education FOR FREE.
    * HELLO! Simple clothing THEY’RE CALLED UNIFORMS, shoes, WITHOUT INSOLES – - – slippers, P.J.’s? YOU ARE KIDDING. YOU THINK THE GUYS IN JAIL WEAR SLIPPERS AND PJS?
    * HELLO! Private, secure rooms, an exercise outdoor yard — with gardens? I won’t even get into the private secure rooms, but STOP AND THINK. A YARD? MORE LIKE A PATCH OF DIRT. AND GARDENS? Like what? flowers? vegetables? Are we kidding?
    * HELLO! a P.C. a T.V. Radio, and daily phone calls? ANY PRIVILEGE IS EARNED, AND ANY “TOY” MUST COME FROM THE OUTSIDE. Plus, phone calls are restricted both to receiver, and to 5 minutes.
    * HELLO! a board of directors for complaints, and a code of conduct for the guards? SIGH. People in jail have been found guilty of a crime, and have to pay their due. But, injustice inside DOES happen. Complaints don’t always get resolved fairly (if even processed) and as much as I admire the correction officers at my place, people are human.

    Prisons are not supposed to be “fun places”, but this “article” distorts the hardships people in jail face. And, frankly, if this person (and wanna bet he calls himself a good Christian?) really believes that nursing homes are so bad, then I hope he is volunteering at the one closest to his house. Or maybe he should volunteer at his local prison, and see for himself how things really are.
