I have been reading about the “poor” inmates on death row in Angola having to put up with excessive heat indexes. Has anyone even thought about people, not in prison, who have to work through the same heat? They don’t get a chance to sue their employers!
I have a brother who works for a waterproofing company. They waterproof roofs and sides of buildings. Nobody heard him complaining about having to work. He’s glad to be able to do it. After all he is almost 72 years old.
The prisoners should be glad they are still alive. All of them murdered someone to get to where they are now. They could have been executed.
Personally, I don’t think they should have any rights.
