Wow. Hopefully this counts as "good behavior" and helps them get parole, if they are eligible.

I would hope that some of the Care2 members who are constantly posting that people in prison are scum would read this and that it would touch something in them. Alas, I fear no such luck.

Not all people in prison are scum cheatingly Joanne. Sure there are a lot of scumbags in prisons but to say that all prisoners are horrid people would be wrong. Those who abuse and kill animals are scum though and that I all not move from. I hope they said thank you to these inmates at the very least.

I hope they get a good writing in their file for what they did - too quick to always place a negative in their file.
