Prison life should be authoritarian and unyieldingly harsh, but not sadistically cruel.

The filth are in the clink for committing crimes against society and it is important that the punishment is commensurate with the offence.

When the filth commit their crime(s) they do so in the full knowledge of the punishment which awaits them if they're caught.

If, in that knowledge they proceed with their crime then they deserve to be subjected to the merciless harshness of prison life.

It was the criminal, through his/her own choice of action who placed themselves in custody.

Well, as an experienced low life criminal and an expert on prison life you, like all scumbag jailbirds should know.

You are insufficiently intelligent to understand the subtle difference between the two meanings and shouldn't read and then quote from publications which you are incapable of understanding.

Are you a trustee and allowed to use the prison's computer?

Are you someone's bitch?

It is only unusual punishment if it isn't done often enough. Do it enough times and there goes half of the Constitution on the issue. Now you are left with if it is cruel or not.

Cruel and unusual punishment is forbidden. The question is whether the most shabby treatment possible is cruel or unusual? I'd say yes.

That doesn't mean society has to make them comfortable. Just that we can't go far out of our way to make them uncomfortable.

Cruel and Unusual Punishment is forbidden is that just in criminal justice system ?

What if the criminal that is behind bars is there for Cruel and Usual Punishment should he or she just be made comfortable by society for the crime he or she committed when you said it was forbidden ?

Leftist only have words to say it makes no sense to anyone but them.

The criminal justice system is not there to be a personal revenge gang. If you lock someone up for torture and then torture them you negate the reasoning you have for locking them up in the first place.

What if the criminal that is behind bars is there for Cruel and Usual Punishment should he or she just be made comfortable by society for the crime he or she committed when you said it was forbidden ?

Nice false dichotomy, bro. You can either torture them or make them comfortable. Nothing in the middle.

Cruel and Unusual Punishment is the wording used in the US Constitution. https://constitutioncenter.org/interactive-constitution/amendments/amendment-viii

Basically you just said being a US citizen makes someone Leftist.
