If you ask me, what prisoners need is the freedom to go where they like, to attend their children’s weddings, birthdays, graduations, be there to support their parents, go shopping when they want, go out with their friends for drinks, clubbing, tea and a host of other personal freedoms that matters.
But to vote? Give me a break.
The problem with the society ]we live in] is not the lack of rights or support; but the lack of responsibilities and consequences. Why give prisoners the right to vote; why not release them entirely?
