It'd be even easier if after your third serious felony if they dropped you into a wood chipper and used the resulting "hamburger" to feed pigs... Call it "The three strikes and you're pig food" program. That'd get rid of the prison overcrowding problem in nothing flat!

You know, Hollywood shows kids being raised under incredibly tough standards going on to become insanely expert assassins or head of the karate club.

So maybe we're looking at this wrong:

Maybe the guy was bringing up his kids to be the next John Wick. Or Batman.

The state of California could be interfering with John Conner's upbringing.

No...you are incorrect. "Protective custody" means that specific inmates must be protected from predation by other inmates for their own safety, which the state or Federal government is responsible for upon incarceration.

That is why such populations cannot be mixed.

It's the law at every single level of our government, based upon the 8th Amendment to the Constitution.

Inmates give up only one right - the right of domicile, which means they cannot live where they wish but they can still vote, receive benefits and everything else...and they get benefits you and I will never have, such as instant access to politicians, governors and lawyers, free of charge.

Here in Colorado, inmates answer the telephones at catalog ordering centers, where they receive your name, address, credit card number and other critical personal information.

Inmates cannot vote. They also lose many other rights such as free association (no they cannot freely congregate or form groups... aka "gangs..." do not have freedom of speech (for example they cannot write say an op ed column for the paper or letters to the editor), they cannot receive most government benefits like social security, cannot enter into contracts and other legal instruments, have no right to or expectation of privacy, and are for all intents considered wards of the state similar to the status of children.

Federal inmates (it varies by state what the state level rules are) must pay to file lawsuits for anything not pertaining to their case. That is, they want to sue the prison, they have to pay a filing fee for their case.
