Dying Inside: Elderly in Prison - Fault Lines

แชร์

  • เผยแพร่เมื่อ 26 มิ.ย. 2015
  • The massive prison population in the U.S. is getting older. Long sentences that were handed out decades ago are catching up with the American justice system, and prisons across the country are dedicating entire units just to house the elderly.
    During difficult economic times, the issue has hit a crisis point. Estimates are that locking up an older inmate costs three times as much as a younger one.

      It’s hilarious how we somehow HAVE to have some form of sympathy for these inmates. I have sympathy for their victims. The victims they killed, raped and screwed up for the rest of their lives. People will say, “Oh but … they are innocent….” Statistically, that is so low nowadays with cellphones, cameras and audits that argument has no merit.

      No the taxpayers are paying for their crimes and "mistakes" a prisoner who is locked up at 30 and has a life sentence costs taxpayers more than 1.8 million per prisoner (not including Healthcare when they get older) there is over 55,000 people with a life sentence that's 99,000,000,000$ just in life sentences that dosent count people who received 25-100 year plus sentence that adds millions of people (death row prisoners are the most expensive costing taxpayers 3-8 million dollars) per person most of them spend over 20 years in the court fighting their sentence. The "war on drugs" back in the 1980s when Regan introduced it probably cost the taxpayers in excess of 10 billion between court / prisons and jails/ people that were locked up / still to this day there are people that were locked up in the 80s 90s 00s that got 20 plus year sentences for drug related crimes which is just crazy and cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars over a 30/40 year span. Just like the 3x strike law that created so many people getting 25 plus year sentences even for non violent crimes and that floods the prison system with people that shouldnt be there and crates overcrowding and funding issues especially when you have a prison for 3000 people and you shove 5000-6000 in there and you have people sleeping on the floor in boats

    I shared a room in the hospital with a elderly prisoner that was in this category who had a stroke. I was in an accident and transported to a local hospital. I ended up in a room with a guy, chained up in the bed who had a prison guard with him, he had very slurred and semi-coherent speech, and it was obvious that he was invalent. He was unable to walk, they had to bathe him in the bed. Later when he was discharged, two other guards came in and they strip-searched him (spread your cheeks and all), apparently rolling him around on the bed, they searched his diaper. All behind the curtain for me, which I appreciated. You can tell the guards were just following a transfer procedure by rote, just doing their job. I only saw him for a second when they wheeled him out, this 90lb scrawny, skeleton looking guy. It was a very strange experience. I don't know I have mixed feelings about it all. The guy probably did something really terrible for all I know.

    I am a nurse and I worked at a state owned hospital for 13 years. When an inmate needed to be in the hospital, they came to my facility. We had a fully locked prison ward, but when an inmate needed ICU or speciality care like chemo, neuro, cardiac, or specialty nursing, they would be transferred and would have 1 or 2 guards with them at all times when off the prison ward. In the ICU, many times I took care of these patients who were in comas and on life support and yet they had to have a guard at the bedside and be shackled to the bed. Out of the ICU, I took care of many inmates who were alert and awake, and I would interact with them. It was against policy for nurses to know what the inmates were convicted of, but sometimes the guards would tell a nurse if they asked. I didnt want to know, and I didnt care. To me, that person was my patient. As long as they treated me with respect, I would give them the high quality nursing care I was trained to give. Now if they were disrespectful, that didnt mean I would give them substandard care, but I would not be likely to sneak into the kitchens at 2 am to get them some extra pudding, or get them a soda instead of water if they were thirsty.
    What surprised me was how polite, kind, and grateful the inmates were when I took care of them. To get a treat of pudding or ice cream at 2am was just not something they were used to. I cared for them without judgement, without duress, and with their dignity and comfort in mind. They would always say thank you to me. They never got mad at me, even if what I was doing hurt or I had to say no to a request because it was against medical orders. I had them tell me time and time again that they were not used to being treated like a human being instead of a number. Sometimes they cried with me, and some of them died because it was their time. They were not allowed visitors, and for several of my inmates, I was the person who was with them when they died because there was no one else. I understand both sides of this argument, but I just wanted to share my point of view and story. Thank you.

    TBH, they deserve their sentence. Also, how would they live in the real world? They are what is called institutionalized. People who are paroled and still young enough to work can’t seem to make it. As was said by others, their victims and their families received life sentences. Justice must be served and at least they are taken care of and receive medical care however lacking. It’s still better than their victims received and they knew what they were doing and the risks.

    Lots of times when victims give their impact statements, they say they want the person that hurt them to "rot in jail," or "die in jail." That's what's happening. Sure, you see these old guys and it's easy to feel sorry for them. Then you realize they chopped someone up in pieces, or killed a kid or something awful, and it gets harder to feel sorry. Maybe if they didn't hurt anyone when they committed their crime, I could see letting them out when they're old and sick. But, if they murdered someone, that changes things. After all, their victim didn't even have the chance to grow old.

That being said calling all murders psychopaths is a generalization and premeditated murder is different from in the moment murder, and sentences are different. There are plenty of cases where someone killed another person in the heat of the moment and felt genuine remorse. There are plenty of murders who have changed their lives after being released. By generalizing you are missing the bigger picture of crime. Prison is for reform. Serial killers and terrorist are the only people that by default get life on life sentences.

    Imagine that there’s just so many elderly everywhere including boomers and not enough younger people to care for all of these people. The repercussions of their parents having 8-15 children in families years ago. 🤦‍♀️ These people still hurt someone they might be old now but I don’t feel sorry for them. Regardless of the condition their in now you killed someone where was their human rights.
