They are serial killers, serial rapist, murders, sexual predators against the young and old....I can go on. These individuals are a waste of life and will never serve any purpose in society. I am superior to them because I do value the life of my fellow man. They do not deserve the fundamental rights of any person.
OK, so that's clear enough for the people in your facility. So what are your thoughts on the others you mentioned - let's take a 21 year old with a history of assault, no murders, some theft, no education, zero prospects. Out of the two options I presented, which do you believe would work best? If he's in a brutal and deprived environment, does that make him worse and destroy any chance of him ever improving? Or is it the deterrent he needs to keep him from reoffending?
