Life expectancy of prisoners

April 28, 2013

by Carl S. Harrison

Have you ever heard of a prisoner with life insurance or health care? No. This is because every prison sentence could very well end up in death to the inmate.

Aging prisoner by The Atlantic
In January, Human Rights Watch reported that from 2007 to 2010 the number of prisoners in the U.S. over age 65 increased by 63 percent, while the total number of inmates grew by less than 1 percent. In Louisiana, caring for aging inmates costs $80,000 annually. A new law there allows parole for prisoners 60 years and older who have not been convicted of a sexual crime and who have served a minimum of 10 years. – Photo: The Atlantic
We are not expected to survive prison. We have no health care insurance plan, and because we do not pay our doctors and caregivers, they have no motivation to give us reasonable care and respect.

In short, we must accept anything that they dish out with a smile. One out of every 100,000 malpractice claims against prison caregivers succeed, while over half of the MD practice claims filed in society succeed.

This tells you how we are looked at by the courts. If a prisoner lives to be 60 years old, it’s a miracle. The state prison has a policy of killing off prisoners who start breaking down, costing them too much money.

There are so many ways to pull our plugs that California prisons are no better than Nazi death camps for older prisoners. Placing a prisoner with hypertension into a cell that is very hot or forcing him to stand in 100 degree heat, placing older inmates on yards that inflict drama and fear and thus heart attacks … well, you get the basic picture of the filth that is California’s prison system.

Corcoran Prison is one of the worst of these “death camps.” When I filed my civil action, I was sent there to be killed off.

    Geez, that sucks. I guess you shouldn’t have raped all those kids… Sucks to be you. Maybe you could move to Africa where the prisoners are afforded humane treatment.

    Wow, this inmate had 18 counts of sodomy and oral copulation with a child under 14 and yet the Bay View still runs this filth’s article? Yes, you should smile and be thankful for whatever you get because the CHILD whose life you ruined has to deal with that forever. If it were truly a “Nazi death camp” you’d be dead already as sex offenders were instantly killed off.

    This “publication” is a complete joke LOL.

    If he was white and female he’d be out already like child killer Hope Rippey. But she converted to Christianity in a red state, guess that helped.
