None of us were there but I'm sure there are opinions on both sides of the fence. However, should any family members or friends find their way here (PTO) or possibly already be members, they are more than welcome. Before this thread goes any further, lets' please take a minute to read PTO's Community Purpose
PTO Community Purpose
The purpose of the Prison Talk Online community is Prisoner & Family Support, Information and Assistance.
While we encourage interest from people with a range of viewpoints seeking to learn more, anything beyond a genuine, friendly dialog is not welcome.
People who are (or were) involved with the Prison System find that they encounter a wide range of difficulties and challenges.
PTO was founded as a forum to help family members cope with these experiences; through the provision of non-judgmental support and the sharing of information.
PTO is not the place to debate whether or not anyone should be in prison, should prisoners and their families have rights or what kind of punishments should be meted out to the guilty.
We look forward to seeing you posting in the forums and hope that we can help you with any issues that you may be experiencing.
