One Conservative's View Of A Maximum Security System
Adequate scripture supports "Imprisoning" of those choosing to
"go around" the laws of mankind (Gen. 40:3; 42:7; Lev. 24:12;
Num. 15:34; I Kings 22:27; Judges 16:21- 25; Luke 3:30; Acts
12:4-10). In other words, if one selects to live in a society -
then there are rules, regulations, laws, statues, ordinances,
mandates, codes, canons, principles, and authority that must be
adhered to. Now - anyone who has all of his/her mental faculties
normally learns this early in life. However, since each of us
has been created with a God-given free will, we can choose if we
want to abide by the rules, or go against them.
In athletic contests (baseball, football, basketball, racing,
etc.), one must abide by the rules or else they forfeit the
contest. In the classroom, if one wills to obtain a "Passing
Grade," there is a certain achievement to obtain. In the world
of employment, if one does not produce, then another is waiting
in line for the opportunity to give the job a try.
Throughout the years "Liberals," such as the American Civil
Liberties Union (ACLU), and others have constantly been brain
washing our legislatures into granting more rights for the
criminal and less for the victims. This has also been carried
into our Penitentiary Systems. Today many of the conservatives
across our land are very upset with the way the criminals who
have been removed from society have demanded various rights from
within the prison walls - and have received such (at tax payers
expense). We no longer see "Chain Gangs" along the roads, as
they are busy "Recreating" inside the prisons, along with their
colored TV's, and air-conditioning.
May we understand that the individual who has committed violent
crimes against fellow human beings (murder, kidnapping, rape,
child molestation, armed robbery, brutality, . . .) have
committed crimes that call for their being removed from society.
The Bible teaches that a person who commits a "Capital Crime"
(rape, murder, . . .) should be executed quickly (Gen. 9:5,6;
Eccl. 8:11). However, due to the Liberals taking over our
Judicial System "Capital Punishment" has been shelved. However,
in some states - "Capital Punishment" is being restored. Thus,
today we find inmates making demands upon prison administrators.
a) Better food b) Higher pay c) Lower prices on commissary items
d) Special clothing for their religious ceremonies e) To fire
and hire new wardens f) More ethnic group guards g) More
recreational facilities h) Visits from females for sexual
If I was going to revamp the "Maximum Security System" today, it
would probably look like the following:
A. Grounds and Buildings
(1) The land would be in a very remote area, with plenty of
acres to grow on and to protect the public. Inmates would arrive
blindfolded so they would not even know which way to escape if
(2) The total prison area would have ten-foot high fences which
would be high voltage charged. There would be two rows of these
fences. It would also have razor sharp wire on top and in
between these, to stop an escape if one was able to climb over
(3) Under ground beneath the fences would be electronic movement
detectors, so if an inmate was seeking to tunnel out an alarm
would sound. Also - underneath the fences would be quarter-inch
steel with rustproof coating, protruding at least ten feet deep
into the earth.
(4) Outside of the fences surrounding the prison would be guards
stationed in small bullet-proof watchtowers. They would be
equipped with at least two machine guns and several thousand
rounds of live ammunition. The guards would have access to radio
communications to other prison personnel, high powered lights,
escape alarms, video monitors, etc.
(5) Housing for the inmates would be: a) built by the inmates
out of rough lumber, along with "Privies," since there would not
be plumbing; b) a hand-powered water pump would be provided for
drawing water with which to cook and bathe (the inmates would do
their own cooking and laundry under guard supervision); c) there
would be limited lighting, and no receptacles to operate radios,
TV's, or any appliances (This is a prison and the inmates are to
be punished for committing crimes. They have given up their
rights when they broke the laws.); and d) there would not be any
air-conditioning, except what breezes are blowing. The heating
system would be provided by the inmates, via either burning of
coal or wood. If they select to burn down their housing - it
will probably take a lengthy period of time to obtain more rough
lumber for them to build, and at their expense.
B. General Rules
(1) Absolutely no talking would be permitted unless authorized
by prison personnel.
(2) No females would be on the prison staff (anywhere).
(3) No photos of females would be permitted.
(4) Anyone caught engaging in homosexual activity would have
surgery performed on them to eliminate future activities. (In
fact, if for some strange reason a sexual offender was not
executed, he probably would be made a eunuch upon arrival at the
(5) Mail would be sent & distributed only once a week. (All of
it would be censored.)
(6) One five-minute phone call "in" would be permitted per month
at requested times, and no phone calls "out" would be permitted.
Calls would be monitored and recorded for safety's sake.
(Remember this is a prison -rights have been forsaken.)
(7) One visit would be permitted per month. (This would be
through glass, no touching, and words spoken would be monitored
and recorded. No prison breaks are going to be in the making.)
(8) Inmates would be constantly shifted around from one area to
another and if need be, he could be transferred to another
Maximum Security Prison. (This would eliminate the formation of
"Prison Power Bosses.")
(9) No inmate would be allowed any personal belongings.
(10) Cell searches would be very common and unannounced. (This
would disclose any unauthorized smuggled in articles or drugs.)
(11) Rebellious inmates would be subjected to isolated cells
with minimal nourishment, until he promised he would stay "in
line." If he is in "Solitary Confinement" two times a year, he
would be told that his next rebellious act would lead to his
execution, and it would be carried out.
(12) Any inmate who insights a riot will be executed.
(13) Sunday would be designated as a day of worship and rest.
All religious services would be supervised by the Prison
(1) Every inmate would be required to work a minimum of 12 hours
a day, (thus no need for "Recreation Periods").
(2) Each inmate would be required everyday to produce a volume
of work to pay for his room and board and for at least an hour's
pay for a guard at the prison as well as an hour's pay of an
"outside" law enforcement officer. Thus, the prisons would cease
to cost the tax payer.
(3) Prison clothes would be assigned and each inmate would be
responsible for them. If they are abusive to them, then they
would go without.
All guards would:
a) undergo strict psychological examination prior to employment
and periodically thereafter;
b) have in-depth background checks;
c) be anti-homosexuals;
d) have unannounced drink/drug checks performed on them;
e) understand that if a riot erupts and demands are made by
inmates, they would not be met, even if the guards life was
f) be shifted into different areas of the prison unannounced
(This would eliminate guards getting too friendly with
g) undercover guards would be "planted" periodically among
inmates to eliminate guards providing drugs, etc., to inmates.
h) undergo periodical unannounced searches (This would eliminate
the carrying in of unauthorized materials to the inmates.)
i) be assured that undercover government agents would be
periodically secretly planted within the inmate population, even
without the prison administration's awareness (This would be for
the purpose of making certain that all is operating properly.)
I would hope and pray that everyone who reads this article would
conclude as I have - "AMERICA NEEDS A RETURNING TO SOME BASICS."
It is a miracle to me that we have any law enforcement officers
at all. When a person puts his/her life on the line to guard the
American citizens and then they have liberal courts to smack the
wrist of the criminals for punishment. If an officer shoots and
kills a person committing a crime, they are harassed by an
investigating board, and made to feel like they have done
something wrong in carrying out their responsibility (protecting
the citizens from the outlaws). May we be praying for guidance
from our Creator as to what steps to take to get America back
