    I have no complaints about prisoners working, because it's been shown that, despite the poor pay, it lowers repeat offense rates by giving them some sort of skill. I would also imagine it is a lot less boring than sitting in a cell all day, even if the work isn't fun, it is something, and if they want to do it (also encourages making choices and free thought), and it benefits the prison or society in general, it's a win-win.

  • Brendan Geormer
    Brendan Geormer Vor 3 Stunden

    I think at this point, companies aren't unaware of the power of "online influencers", and are just abusing the fact that they'll take less pay for the same work when compared to more traditional means. If a Kardashian wants to charge millions, and a person like this James character would do the same job but for tens of thousands, they are of course gonna keep going with the thousands, and offer that to other, comparable online personalities, because of their collaborations previously. I can imagine that also playing into people who are new to sponsorships getting offered a rate and assuming something that low is just the norm.

    How about the fact that there is no proof that she didn't give consent, and how he was wasted to a point where he was throwing up. For all we know, she only became unconscious while he was fingering her, and he didn't realize that she was too drunk because he was wasted out of his mind. And him being convicted doesn't really prove that he was actually at fault, all it says is that the jury thought that it was more likely that he was guilty than not guilty.

    I think the prison system has a lot of flaws, but letting inmates work (albeit at a severely reduced pay rate) is alright. You're letting them have purpose, letting them gain experience, and even earning a bit of extra cash. What angers me is exactly what you said with the EMT board; most inmates, regardless of their crime(s), do not get a second chance on the outside. Yeah, some people with their crimes are a "hazard" at best, but most people just made a mistake, or want that second chance and are automatically ruled out for that little box on the application. Here you have fine volunteers who are approved of by the state to provide a critical service, and now have ACTUAL EXPERIENCE, being thrown out because they were inmates. That part, right there is what's wrong..

    I feel like we could give special recommendations for the inmates fighting the fires if/when they apply to be firefighters when they get out. they obviously would take some competence tests etc. but given the fact that they already have experience in firefighting, and they have served their time, it would only seem fair.

    On the inmates, it's a great way to contribute. These inmates are putting their lives on the line to legitimately contribute to society. As for whether or not this should lead to a job opportunity when they get out, why not? It's skilled labor, they're physically fit, and are more importantly, experienced. Considering they're picking very specific inmates with rigorous conditions, I believe this could be an opportunity to really help reform some who are legitimately working for it. It's not like they're being allowed to enter law enforcement. They're entering a field where they can use their skilled labor to actual good use as EMTs and Fire Fighters. I have no issue with this.

    I think those inmates are doing a great service by helping fight the fires. Their lives are on the line. No matter what they've done before (since the worst offenders aren't being included), it doesn't take away from the good work they are doing right now.
    I had no clue inmates had jobs they were paid next to nothing for. That sounds way too much like slavery to me. Why can't they get paid fairly for the work they did after they've served their sentence? It might give them a headstart that'll help them keep clean from then on.
    I'm sure some will be returning to jail anyway, but that's already a reality. This might reduce the return rate. It's worth testing, at least.

    I have a lot of thoughts re: prisoners as firefighters. First off, I think it's a great program - these are convicted felons, it's voluntary, they have to go through training, they make a wage, AND let's be real: if the other firefighters have their hands full, and they bring in reinforcements - are the people complaining about "slave labour" going to be the ones to volunteer? HELL NO. BUT: if they do this program and are released, they should be immediately offered by the state to begin EMT training and get offered a position as a firefighter. It only makes sense if they've served their state/country and risked their lives to save other people, that they are offered this.

    You are 100% wrong about Brock Turner. Seriously it is just disgusting how you and the regressive left demonise this innocent man. You can say "Convict sex offender" as much as you want to try brainwash people but if you had a shred of integrity and desire for truth you would take a step back and look at the reality of the case again. In fact go watch AIU's videos on it as he looks at the evidence and reports in detail and anyone with a single ounce of intelligence rather than a mission would understand he did not rape anyone.
    These witch hunts destroy men's lives for something they haven't even done. It leads them to commit suicide and YOU are the problem and a piece of shit.

    Wow. The Sinclair story is a such a fucking victory, and it gives me some faith in both the private and the public sector doing what is actually right for once. THE GUY IN THE FCC WHO DIDN'T LIKE NET NEUTRALITY HAD DOUBTS, FOR CHRISSAKES. There were proper investigations made, and Tribune, who had probably spent a lot of time and money working on this merger, are suing them for lying through their teeth about their shitty business practices, which would then become THEIR problem when the businesses merged. Whether it's noble or selfish, they're still not opening the airlock to a company acting like a virus, spreading its influence further than what is allowed.
    Honestly, the current form that corporatism has been taking terrifies me, in that a lot of the anti-monopoly laws that I learned about in school I worry are being slowly broken down. The political cartoon of the octopus representing Standard Oil (and Rockefeller, from 100+ years ago) comes to mind whenever I see a company's wriggling tendrils wrapping their way around everything. I get nervous, whether it's the local college buying everthing and changing the cityscape, or Disney toys being made by Hasbro now instead of Mattel (because Disney now owns Marvel, and Star Wars, and Hasbro made those toys, but this still makes the toy market less diverse), or shady, ideological broadcasting companies vying to take over access to more of our EYES.
    It's scary as hell that our President, the leader of our "free country," is in support of scary, tentacled, corporation-viruses like Sinclair, but it makes sense - because HE'S GROWN HIS OWN SCARY, TENTACLED, CORPORATION-VIRUS.
    I hate everything, but because this deal didn't go down on so many levels - the fact that for once, the fortifications of some sense of dignity and justice prevailed against an attack - I have some more hope we can fight back. That the better in us can fight against worse impulses. That for once, something morally and legally wrong and shitty, is prevented from happening because it's immoral, illegal, and shitty. AUGH.

Its like a white t-shirt at Gucci vs. a white t-shirt at Walmart. Both are the same thing, but one is valued more.

    I think there's a compromise to be made for the prisoner firefighters, where they should have EMT training in prison so they can have a steady job when they leave prison. They need to allow these prisoners to make a career out of it because these fires are only going to get worse and if they have a steady income... less chance of repeat offenses? Also, my main concern with that tweet CA Corrections put out is the "volunteer juvenile" inmates. If people have an issue with the little pay the prisoners get... what is it like for the juveniles??

    I don't hate on the inmates working and helping within their community. It helps them learn skills in the future. I wish there was some sort of resume for when they get out of prison to show they did voluntarily work for a certain job. Especially if they do want to become a firefighter I do wish they could if their job while in prison was voluntary fire fighting. I think it's great and it shows that inmates can become part of society sooner or later. It's what you kind of want from prisoners. They did a bad thing but can learn some good from prison and in this case being a voluntary fire fighter it does good and helps out the community.

A digital influencer relays on their fans far more than traditional celebrity and often their climb to fame is built on a foundation of trust. Trust that they will deliver what they promise to fans and that they’ll have to answer to us if they don’t. Traditional celebrity doesn’t answer to fans, they answer to their industry corporations and managers. Or at least it seems that way to me.

If you believe they are still likely to commit their crime then you need to reform the prison system so they won't. If you don't think they will but you say its part of the punishment, then either A: The crime is hanouse enough that you feel the punishment in jail wasn't enough, so go back to jail, or B: You think they have served there time, but I don't see why you would want to ruin their life in that instance.

    Inmate firefighters LOVE being part of the fire camp program. They get out from behind the oppressive prison walls to go live in a fire camp setting with normal food, more casual recreation, free access to phone and television, proper laundry facilities etc. Anyone who has ever set foot inside a state prison knows fire camp is the closest you can get to living like a free citizen while being in custody of the state. I don't know why this issue flares up every few years with people trying to deprive them of this opportunity but it needs to stop. Opposing this program so these guys have to move back to cells or shitty dorm living with awful food, filth, and tedium is doing them NO favors. In their efforts to look like heroes, people are actually screwing these inmates over.

    Prison labour is slavery unless it pays like a proper job.
    The imprisonment IS the punishment.
    Prison labour is not a part of the imprisonment, it is an extra punishment, and one you haven't been give by a jury of your peers but instead by a private prison complex that is incentivised to pay inmates next to nothing for working for them, to produce cheap goods, while at the same time billing inmates for their stay, in a way that inmates cannot pay back when they leave and thanks to the status of prisoners in the US they can' get jobs so they are forced to break the law to make their payments to the prison, OR not pay and break the law by not paying, either way they go back to prison.

    1. I have friends who have worked the fire lines while incarcerated. It is a joy to the prisoners, as they feel like they are really doing something good for society. They actually, for the first time in their lives in some cases, feel good about themselves. Please don't take that away.
    2. We as a society need to be much better about how we treat ex convicts. Not all convicts were in prison for murder and rape and other horrifying reasons. Many of them made some bad decisions and fucked up (drugs, theft, etc.) We can't decide anyone who has stumbled and fell has to then stay on the ground. We can allow people the opportunity to change their lives.

    To be completely honest, prisoners having jobs is not slave labor. They'd have one even without being a criminal. My mother has been in a max security prison for around 11 years now, so I know quite a lot about prison and how it works. They're not treated completely equally to us, because they are felons. They have committed a crime and are having to pay for it. There are many jobs to choose from and try to get into, such as cosmetology school and animal rescue and fitness training, some have to be cooks and librarians and janitors. Higher risk inmates are also banned from certain things. Lower risk and improving inmates have more opportunities. Its not necessarily slave labor because they are still treated like adults and get paid and have to buy their own hygiene items and art supplies and makeup and extra clothes and tvs and stuff. They even have their own prison-ified tablets and are getting personal prison phones. I would not say its slave labor, its punishment and rehabilitation. If you had to spend 2,874 days in prison like my mom, you'd go insane if you didnt have anything to do.
    Im not saying prison cant be harsh and draining and incredibly unjust, because it definitely is. My mom got 8 years for a few counts of theft. She knows another girl who got 8 years for killing her child. This is just the experiences I've had while both of my parents, and most of my shitty addict family, had been locked up.

    The more I learned about brock the more I agree it was not rape, more like a drunken hook up where she was cheating on her boyfriend

    Brock Turner didn't try to rape her, there's literally no evidence for it. Isn't it convenient that the women, who has a boyfriend, remembers everything up until the point that she choses to cheat on him with Turner. So instead of admit that she was going to be a whore and cheat on her boyfriend she gets to run with an allegation that she doesn't even remember which exonerates her from all responsibility.

      She didn't even make the allegation. Others made it for her. She doesn't even have any recollection of what happened.

    On the topic of the inmates fighting the fires. I think as long as they aren’t violent offenders of any kind and things like that it shouldn’t be a big deal. There are a lot of people in this country that can’t even get a minimum wage job at a fast food restaurant because of their “criminal” background. You have a lot of people that made mistakes when they were between 18-24 years old and are now 35-36 years old and can’t get a job. I honestly believe that if the job they are trying to get doesn’t relate to their offense (ie. someone with drug charges getting a job at a pharmacy) there shouldn’t be a problem hiring someone. People want to gripe about those that are “homeless” or get government aid, but its because of things like not letting a qualified person have a job working at McDonald’s because they made a mistake. People make mistakes. NO ONE is perfect.

    Hope you're getting yourself ready for a public apology to Brock Turner, buddy. The man is innocent. You honestly should be ashamed of this slanderous, white knight bullshit. Look into the details of the case and the testimonies of both parties before shouting your mouth off.
