Prisoners are not entitled to shit the filthy animals. One thing to be concerned about the coronavirus whole other thing to just destroy property and act like total assholes. They want to act like heathens then they should be treated as such.

The fact that they rioted is the very reason they should stay in prison

Surely if prisoners acted like totally destructive assholes enacting regime change utilizing drones, they would be more acceptable.

Never let a crisis go to waste! This is a perfect opportunity to stop the never ending and extremely expensive appeals of death sentences. Put the cons on death row in with a population of CV-19 positives, and wait.

Trump lied; Americans died. Now 25k dead with no end in sight. Deplorables whining the entire time while King Donald waves his tiny penis at state governors.

What about states rights? What about the Constitution? Fucking hypocrites. Go break the quarantine and lick some (door) knobs...

If you commit a crime, expect to be caught and imprisoned. In prison there have been big fires, abuse, illnesses and other disasters killing trapped inmates. You want to avoid death? Having freedom helps. DONT DO THE CRIME! If you think you don't "matter much" to society due to your race - well you matter much less in prison.
