    Because Catholics don't read the Bible. That's what they have priests for.

    I think you state that in jest, or I hope you do. Biblical verse is included in the Catholic liturgy.

    I don't know my religious stance yet. I do not know enough about religions(except hinduism) and the messages that religion has are accepted by me but not the fact that there "someone" watching over us or someone supremely powerful.

    I think it's pretty attractive to have someone who will forgive you for anything once society has just told you that you suck at life and require segregation from decent people...

    People see god as a merciful thing and even if every other person is saying you are an ***** and they don't forgive you, people get comfort from having something being able to forgive them.

    Sending someone to prison is a pretty harsh way of dealing them, deserving or not. When they get there and they're alone, I think it's understandable to seek solace in the concept of a God or gods or Jesus or a prophet or whomever will accept you for your faults and provide a way to forgiveness; when the rest of the world clearly is not going to forgive. Society gives a person the finger and religion reaches out a friendly hand, which one would we expect them to grab onto?

    Doing something to end up in prison is a choice.

    Nobody has to go through that. It is a choice.

    Agreed, but there can be exceptions and situations of unbearable desperation. Somebody could be mentally incapacitated like the character Lennie in Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men," or you could be so poor, hungry and desperate you might steal a loaf of bread for hungry children like the character Jean Valjean in Hugo's "Les Miserables."

    I'd be willing to bet a large percentage of my salary that there is only a mere, miniscule percentage of people in prison under circumstances that you point out; compared to people in prison that are there because they think they're bad-asses.

    Or you could be like the Apostle Paul and just share your Faith.

    Not quite.
    People that go to jail range from drunk idiots to mentally unstable people to people having a bad child hood.
    Nearly everyone is mentally unstable in prison it is not a choice for them, they most likely have a troubled past.

    I don't blame the prisoners, I blame their childhood and parenting that went on.

    Sorry chetan, can't agree with you on that one. My sister has life in prison with no chance of parol and it is entirely her fault. Yeah, she had a troubled childhood, but she's the one who decided to make it troubled. You never have to become a product of your environment. They make that choice for themselves.

    The vast majority of the prison population are there because of choice. However, there are some, a very small percentage of the prison population, who have been incarcerated unjustly.

    People choose to be drunk idiots, to lose control of themselves.

    People with "bad childhoods" can also grow up to be inspirational and genuinely good people. Or they could choose to play the victim card.

    The definition of a "troubled past" is too wide open these days and is used as an excuse for everyone and everything.

    I know.
    But we're not talking about the very small percentage.

    Unjust incarceration is a whole 'nother subject. Would make for a good thread too.

    My sister swears she didn't do the crime she was accused of. But she's guilty by association. I love my sister, no doubt about it, but whether or not she pulled the trigger doesn't matter to me. That's the thing, there really aren't unjust imprisonments. Maybe unjust sentences.

    Really sad about your sister. Sorry about that. Can't help saying that in some cases innocents do end up in prison. It might be a small percentage but it does happen. For instance this was a recent high profile case of an innocent man who served two decades behind bars. Man Wrongfully Convicted Of Murder Suffers Heart Attack After Release From Prison - NY1.

    sorry, i'll leave the post even though off topic. i just sas that the op recommended 'unjust incarceration' be a topic for another thread.
    Did he commit the robbery?

    It was a murder case, and I guess there is no way to know whether or not he committed the crime, but he was convicted on spotty evidence.
