Jail Vs. Nursing Home

I actually received this in an email, but I had to pass it along. It’s sooo true —

Let’s put the seniors in jail, and the criminals in a nursing home. This way the seniors would have access to showers, hobbies, and walks, they’d receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs etc. and they’d receive money instead of paying it out. They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly ,if they fell, or needed assistance. Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them. A guard would check on them every 20 minutes, and bring their meals and snacks to their cell. They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose. They would have access to a library, weight room,spiritual counseling, pool, and education. Simple clothing , shoes, slippers, P.J.’s and legal aid would be free, on request. Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard ,with gardens. Each senior could have a P.C. a T.V. radio, and daily phone calls. There would be a board of directors , to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct, that would be strictly adhered to.

The “criminals” would get cold food, be left all alone, and unsupervised. Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week. Live in a tiny room , and pay $5000.00 per month and have no hope of ever getting out. Justice for all.

  2. what a comparison… :razz:

  3. It's actually more like, prison where you wait in a 2 hr line for cold horrible food you have to eat in 5 mins, while guards are tearing apart your room and throwing away your possessions which you can never recover. Where sanitation is so low MURSA is prevalent and when you get it you die because you have to wait months to see a nurse (no doctors). TVs in common areas which if changed could cost you your life. Cold showers everyday, laundry that goes out in a bag and comes back the same, smelling similar to the way you sent out. but wait most of that isn't your stuff, they're now too big and too small, and wait your underwear didn't have stains like that in the back! Locked in a 6×9 bathroom with 3-4 other men 10 hrs a day. Oh and yes there is pay for work. Plumber, $12 a month, electrician $12 a month, janitor $12 a month…. Which goes to buy cosmetics and toilitries and other such items which are sold at regular store prices. Yes there is education taught by fellow inmates, brilliant guys they is. And free legal counsel too, also by those same brilliant minds who are in the same place as you…

  4. what a comparison… LOL

  5. So true! So true!!! Love this!
