i call sam saddam

well there in prison for a reason! and they can only blame themselves.

what i dont understand is, why travel thousands of miles to what is apparently meant to be a beautiful country that i will see for myself in a couple of months time to see your own people in another countrys prison? majority of them convicted for a very good reason, the others are the unlucky ones.

there is loads of prisons in the country that anyone is from who you can meet, wine and dine...and they are only down the road to visit and they look for vistors too.

plus why experience been treated like crap by thai prison staff?

in other countrys they lock you too up, if a guy was in a thai prison for terrorism and you decide to see this guy then they might lock you up for supporting his activitys...this can be done in the usa and they dont really need evidence for that...seeing a person you dont know is a good enough reason! as the courts wont believe that you are there just to talk about the weather.

i personally think meeting such people is just asking for trouble...some of these people you meet tell you that they did drugs, but some of them are actually in there for murder...pedo's and all that. prisons are known as the nut joint because it is full of nutters!

not a good idea to build a relationship with a convicted convict! in most cases they dont give a rats ass about your ass so why should you give a rat about there ass? they may appreciate it if you visit them but when they get out they wont care who you are! unless you got money!

there is lots of ways making money than doing drugs! like get a job!

why not rob a tourist? they for sure wont get the death penalty for that! though i would be privileged to meet such a person if they attempt to rob me!.................i know karate! and i can kill someone in 1 move!....the hand of death

Well, at least now you explained yourself. There were tons of posts in this thread that didn't seem to really be about the threads original topic, but about people that are convicted deserving it, which is a totally different topic. Naturally, you're entitled to your own opinion and I'm glad you express it. For others though, there could be plenty of reasons to visit prisons and I'm pretty sure this thread was meant for those people, not those not wanting to do it (although it is good to get a few different reasoned sides to the pros/cons of paying a prison visit!).

Hello Laura

I also worried, when I was going to the prison, about what to talk about, with a complete stranger.
It was no problem. I think they are lonely and will talk your ear off, if u dont have anything u want to say.

Why do u think, it might not be appropriate, to visit a prisoner?

I meant just for me it wouldn't be appropriate, if you or anyone wants to visit a prisoner then that's cool, just don't think it's for me. I'd rather give my time to help others. Nothing against you or others who choose to do this.

I can totally see that argument. I think there is also another facet. We all make mistakes, some incredibly huge, and in this instance, the punishment isn't exactly suitable for the crime. Being stuck in a prison for the rest of your life without even a clean pair of undies or a decent conversation about the outside world or news of home? I can see why someone would sooner walk the plank.

Want a good read? try "The Last Executioner" memoirs of Thailands last prison executioner.

Hello Draggons

That sounds like an informative book.
Hopefully, I will find it, in the library, so I read it.
There is only a limited selection of English books, in the libraries here, in Germany.
