What's your opinion on the punishment v rehabilitation function of prisons?
If the gang you are pally with are the criminal type have you changed your habits, or are you back in touch with the same group again?
Yes it was my first time. Id be fairly sure it is my last time too. I have cut all ties with previous associates. It most definitely is not the type of life I want to lead, in fact, it wasnt then either , I just sort of fell in to a trap being young and naive I guess.
There definitely needs to be an overhaul of how prisons are managed regards rehabilitation and reform. The only prisoners I know that have taken a half decent path since release are ones who got involved in the few good things that go on in prison like courses and projects etc.
