  1. The best reform that can be instituted at Rikers would be a policy of immediate summary execution for any act of violence against the staff, and immediate solitary confinement in a cage outside for 1 year with nothing to eat but expired cat food and no toilet for any act of violence against another inmate. Crazy sh*t would stop right away.

  2. All prisoners should be given one big shot of the best heroine …. And send them in to never never land……
    they’ll never commit another crime , won’t have to complain about conditions and will cut down on the expensive upkeep

  3. Prison wasn't designed for the inmates to be treated like humans and depending on what crime you committed should depend on what kind of prison you get sent to! If you have killed someone or someone's if you have hurt a child or a woman you should be treated like the animal that you are! Drug offenders and petty crap you have a fighting chance to get better so you should be treated like a human
