148 jhayes88 I used to extradite fugitives for living around the country on a large bus. I've encountered a couple thousand inmates during that time. I've met some genuinely decent people who made some dumb mistakes.. A lot of people are locked up for some really stupid reasons, such as failure to appear in court because they legit couldn't make it, failure to pay child support, Marijuana, etc.. Some of them seemed like decent human beings and were still driven to do good in life. There isn't a significant portion of those people incarcerated by ANY means. A vast majority of inmates who are locked up aren't the best people in life.. Even people who have made really really stupid decisions in life occasionally have a heart though. I've had plenty of inmates help elderly inmates who they had just met for example.
28 keepitcleanforwork That’s a hard looking 52.
87 notbobby125 From a selfish point of view, the inmates could've done this as saving a guard's life will award major brownie points when their parole comes up. However, I am not sure they were thinking those selfish thoughts at the time they did it. Either way, a guard is probably still alive because of their actions.
13 mlperiwinkle I think a lot of criminals could've gone the other way in life if they'd've had legitimate ways of helping people during their lives, (and been raised in less fear). Just a theory.
24 Prophecy_X3 "What if the rest of your life was defined by your worst moment?" Years from now people will look back at the way we incarcerate our citizens and shake their heads in shame. They are the ones who need the most help and we give them next to none. Expecting solely punishment will change their behavior. Then the vast majority come right back after release and we pay $80,000 a year to keep them there.
3 bigdaddypimpilicious I suddenly realized that prison inmates are sometimes decent people too! /s
2 DRHOY What compelled consideration from those inmates? Gary Grimm did. He very likely wouldn't have had to do anything but not create a grudge, to begin with. That falls well short of failing to abuse or dehumanize the men in his care. Gary Grimm's behaviour with these men - while conscious - was at worst not offensive to their sense of self-worth or personal aspirations. You get out what you put in.
