Should the lifers be confined to their own prisons, so they can only prey on each other? Even if that is the case, wouldn't the weaker lifers be experiencing state sanctioned torture at the hand of the lifers?
What exactly are we to do with violent and malevolent lifers who wake up in the morning thinking about who they are going to victimize today?
And what about the guards? Since we won't let the guards run the prison with absolute compliance, obedience, order, and respect (or else) then how can we ask these people to go into a workplace where they might be harmed by an incorrigible monster that society simply doesn't have the stomach to execute?

Which is what this man did when he murdered a man because of the colour of his skin,Quote:
Punishing people can be done by stripping them of their freedoms, their property, and most of their civil rights.
Fine, don't kill him in a cage. Take him outside where the sun is shining and the birds are singing, then take five men and five rifles with 30.06 cartridges, put him up against a wall and blow his head off.Quote:
However, kiilling people should be done only when necessary (like police shooting an armed gunman, or soldiers killing enemy combatants in a warzone). It is never necessary to kill a man in a cage, that is about revenge, and it's sick
There are only three things to remember about torture.Quote:
As for torture, that's even worse, torture violates humanity itself, torture is obscene. Torture is always wrong. Period
Red is positive.
Black is negative.
Make sure his balls are wet.
