Recently there has been a whole lot of commotion about the human rights of prisoners, and their right to vote. Obviously like everyone else I have my own perspective and it is based on these 3 points:-
- A prisoner is a person who lost his rights by committing an injustice against society.
- Punishment is their having their freedoms and rights removed from them.
- If they do not give a toss about victimising people, then do you think care about society enough to vote? Also do you think they are responsible enough to take the RIGHT decision (based on their history)?
Besides which, are there not also the complications about getting their vote (safety, cost, security etc).
Obviously there are some exceptions but they are exceptions.
So in my opinion, if you don’t care for society.. then you deserve to lose your right to vote!
