Our prison system is not the reason why we have more crime than you do. We have different people here. If we had a prison system like yours i'm almost 100% certain that gang members would still be out there robbing,killing and selling drugs. You can't rehabilitate someone that doesn't want to change and sorry to say there's a lot of people that don't want to change.
Games and internet access for murderers a rapists lol wow..That sure is a deterrent to murderers and rapists.
Arguably you have different "people" (wow, that's the most ridiculous argument I've seen since forever, yes, because we don't have gangs and such here ) because you have a ###### prison system who's only purpose is to punish people.
if yo paid any attention you would have noticed that the trial prison in America whichi actually learns from european prisons and focuses on the prisoners and on rehab, is rehabiliating not only regular criminals but even helping and rehabilitating your hardened gang criminals.
It's not the criminals who are different in America, it's the other people, people like you, who think they are better than the criminals, and who think they deserve to be punished rather than helped, because it makes YOU feel better knowing other people are suffering because you feel they are lesser than you and deserve it. therefor you don't want to know and admit that they can be helped and become useful citizens. Meanwhile your pirson system is slowly starting to learn from these small trial prisons and seeing that your system is broken and needs to be fixed and that fixing the prison system is the first step to fixing your crime problem, not arresting and punishing more people.
