    Comments/attitudes like I have just read are the exact reason why there is such a need for change! People need to pull together not divide and conquer. The biggest problem with the world today is too many problems with no solutions. The HMP is a CORRECTIONAL facility. It in all the years i've known of it's existance it has not corrected much, in fact it has destroyed most who have entered and those connected to them and left a permanent scar on all. People make mistakes all the time...everyday... People are not bad...sometimes just make bad choices. Nobody can go back and make a brand new start, but anybody can start today and make a brand new beginning! Noone has the right to judge other's...that job is already taken.

    The Act contaoins NO specific prisoner rights because when they were convicted of their crimes they lost the rights to be a member of society.

    Prisoners have more rights than the rest of the population. They have access to radios, TV and all the rest of it and also get free medical, dental and all the rest including FREE hotel and board. Take it all fromk them and let them pay for it the same as everybody else.

    When I was in hospital, I had to pay $50.00 a week for a 5 sq. inch TV 10 years ago. Nobody paid for that but me.

    If they want rights, they should have thought of that before they did the crime.

    Is anyone else tired of the lame, pointless jibberish continually coming out of Loraine Michael?

    Obviously,not much advancement since Dickens portrayals of prisoners and the Victorian public perception of inmates.Inmates are at the bottom of society's pecking order and are safe targets for venting one's personal frustrations since they are unable to defend themselves.I am sure not all inmates are incorrigible but yet all will suffer for negative generalizations .We need to live and let live because many of those commentators who cast stones have enough stones in their own back gardens for a solid rock wall,the type found in the Lake District of Northern England .

    Yes that is bad referring to a scumbag in jail as a jailer . Let's change it to GUEST of the people of NL. Or maybe it should be CLIENT , as in a non paying client, commonly known as scumbag.
