Let's put the seniors in jail, and the criminals in a nursing home.

This way the seniors would have access to showers, hobbies, and walks, they'd receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment , wheel chairs etc. and they'd receive money instead of paying it out.

They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly, if they fell, or needed assistance. Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.

A guard would check on them every 20 minutes, and bring their meals and snacks to their cell.

They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.

They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counseling, pool, and education. Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, P.J.'s and legal aid would be free, on request.

Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard, with gardens.

Each senior could have a P.C. a T.V. radio, and daily phone calls. There would be a board of directors, to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct, that would be strictly adhered to.

The "criminals" would get cold food, be left all alone, and unsupervised. Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week. Live in a tiny room, and pay $5000.00 per month and have no hope of ever getting out.

Justice for all.

So true, and so sad. As I wipe tears from my eyes, I am reminded of my own mother. She was missing for over 12 hours before she was "missing". This never would have happened in a prison. Although that much attention would have driven her crazy.

We have many injustices in our systems, and this is a good example of one.

Makes me sick and should make us all sick. Now some stupid women running for office wants to give these damm criminals massages, can you believe that one.

I think all criminals shpould have to spend at least 6 months in the Arizona Jail Town run by Sheriff Joe Aprio... Now thats a man that knows how to run a jail/prison. No prisioner wants to get caught in Arizona and ebd up in his custody. I LOVE THIS MAN...and if you google him you'll understand why. He knows how to make a criminal regret his choice of crime every minute of every day, no coddling them in his custody.

Read this to my mom today and she was totally in agreement and truly ticked off... I am sending her a copy to show her resident friends.

Jawjaw,
I agree with everything you posted. Prisoners have it better than our seniors! What a crock of crackers that is!

Makes you wonder if the folks who are crying for the rights of criminals, are the same ones who are letting their parents suffer.

Now thats a thought and and I bet your correct in your assumptions Meredith. It's always the DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO who flap their big mouths and then do nothing themselves.

Where my friend is living, in a County Home facility, I've gotten
to know many of the residents. Their families put them in there
and then never visit. And such sweet folks, closed away and
never bothered with again. This segment of society really gets
a raw deal; many of these people, there's nothing wrong with
them. It's just that nobody wants to be bothered with having
'em around. And that's a heartbreaking concept. Only about 1/5th
of them have visitors, that includes the holidays. What a crock
of crackers this is. It breaks my pea-pickln' heart! sick
