it to us.
I believe that if you believe that if you are convicted of something that has put you in prison, then you do not deserve privacy. Many prisoners plot to kill each other and the guards. If there was less privacy given to the inmates, that would be less likely to happen.
Also, prison is not supposed to be "fun time." It is made as a punishment. how are inmates being punished if they are allowed to do anything they want in the privacy of their own cell?
of all we like enjoying our private life. Besides
people need to have enough time to stay alone and
think about themselves everyday. Some things are
not allowed to share; people have to respect the
others' privacy in order to have a community
In the US there is no privacy for the mentally ill.
I know, because I am living proof. My parents
contact the authorities wherever I live and have me
watched like a live Truman Show. There is no
escape. They invade my privacy in my home and have
all my neighbors spy on me and report back to them
if they notice any deviant behavior. They have
labeled me as a "threat" and "antisocial" in order
to keep me under their control. I will never be
free to live my own life, because in the U.S., the
mentally ill are considered a threat.
