Fuck em. When you've committed crimes against society why the hell should you be allowed to participate in the freedoms that society has to offer.

If they want to vote they can all get together and run some candidates for Prime Minster of their cell block or who's the best bubba in the place. Otherwise they can STFU and do their time so maybe someday they can be released and actually participate in the society they showed so little regard for.

I agree. Let them rot. If you can't do the time, don't do the crime!

No sympathy for any and all prisoners.

In complete agreement with all of the above.

I have no problem with the inmates voting. It's not like they'd be able to skew the election results. Even moreso given that most of them are such genuinely massive shitheads and morons that they won't bother to vote even if a ballot station is set up in the prison. Seriously, if the majority of these guys weren't fucking idiots they wouldn't have become criminals and gotten incarcerated in the first place.

These clowns already have the right to vote something you can thank Mr. Chretien and his band of ne'er do wells for. Although in hindsight given the trouble they got themselves in I wonder if this argument wasn't a little bit self serving.

Quote:
In Sauvé (1995), the Federal Court Trial Division accepted the government's argument that enhancing civic responsibility, respect for the law and penal sanctions were sufficiently important objectives to warrant infringement of a Charter right. It found, however, that the disqualification for inmates serving two years or more still failed the tests of both proportionality and minimum impairment. Successful administration of the inmate vote in the 1992 referendum also appears to have influenced the Court's decision to strike down the prisoner voting restrictions of Bill C-114.


Now that isn't good enough and they want to be able to vote on the same day as the rest of us. Apparently the poor little muffins don't have enough time in their country clubs to decide who to vote for and want the same rights as the rest of society.

Things like this latest demand have nothing to do with elections or justice and are just another way for the bleeding hearts to chip away at the differences between a criminal and a free citizen. So, if challenges like this are allowed to continue they will eventually erode every privilege that we as free citizens enjoy while elevating the criminal to an equal status.

So once again I'll say it. Fuck em. First off they shouldn't be voting because, prison isn't supposed to be about equal rights. It's supposed to be a punishment and method for society to protect itself from the predators who roam it's streets. Then unlike what the John Howard Society seems to think, if they happen to get rehabilitated that's a bonus, but not a prerequisite.
