    At 5:00 you are saying "prison" but showing a picture of a nazi concentration camp. Please do NOT use images of KZs as examples for prisons since this is very respectless to all victims of nazi terror and victims of the holocaust. Concentration Camps were NOT just simple prisons they were industrialized slaughter houses for human beeings with the sole purpose of killing as many of their inmates as possible. Other than prisons that have the purpose of locking someone up or being a correction facility for criminals.

    Joe Arpaio would be the guy to argue that since he feeds the loaf as punishment for minor infractions and very often, it couldn't count as unusual anymore. Therefore, it can't be cruel AND unusual, since it happens all the time, and therefore not unconstitutional. Genius!

    ccityplanner12 :2 ditë më parë

    The eighth amendment is a stupid law because it doesn't define "cruel and unusual". Every punishment starts somewhen, & before it becomes established, it is unusual. However, once it becomes established, it is no longer unusual. Therefore, the later usages of a cruel punishment once it has become established are legal, but they wouldn't have been legal had it not been for the earlier usages before it became established, which were illegal.

If you think "3 hots & a cot" is a vacation, you're wrong. I don't believe you should be given "good/gourmet" meals in confinement. It should be nutritional & edible. That's it. It's a punishment for a reason.

    It's banned where I live but it's still cruel. I have ADHD, leading to sensory issues and I'm considered a "picky eater" since I find a lot of normal foods gross. This punishment is unusual so it gets that checkmark and cruel. Their punishment is living in jail, they shouldn't have to have their punishment upped by not being given the best human necessities. Would they still force it if someone went on a hunger strike? It should be banned but that's my personal opinion. No offense to people who don't agree
