It was bound to happen: Prisoners 'could serve 1,000 year sentence in eight hours'. I believe this raises serious questions about how authorities would choose to let prisoners use (or waste) their time. Even if the experience of long periods of isolation are all they experience, how much better would it be if they come out with severe psychological trauma.
Exactly. We should rehabilitate people and try to solve the problems that make people become criminal in the first place instead of devising new ways to punish, torment and torture them.
