Prisons are a role model of what society should look like because all prisoners have access to universal health care, there is full employment, and everyone gets three square meals a day, amirite?

And the strong rape the weak what a place to be

The food isn't great quality, neither is the health care (in one case a woman who was imprisoned for violating her probation conditions and getting pregnant received improper health care and died in childbirth). In some prisons, the inmates are forced to work for no pay (remember that provision in the 13th amendment that says that if you're charged with a crime you can be subject to involuntary servitude?).

Too many people end up going to prison for petty crimes such as possession of an illegal substance. Some drug policies that were originally intended to target certain minority groups are continuing to be carried out against these minority groups.

Even if prisoners don't deserve to be *paid for their work, things like possession of marijuana should not go on a permanent record that affects their ability to work later.

This sounds a bit like Communism...
