New TLC show Prison Diaries reveals shocking reality of life awaiting execution
The Daily Mail ^ | 12:03 AM on 21st September 2011 | Daisy Dumas

Posted on 09/20/2011 5:46:56 PM PDT by Niuhuru

A chilling look inside the minds of female prisoners unfolds on Thursday with the première of the new TLC show, Prison Diaries.

The first episode of the series focuses on Emilia Carr, one of just 63 women on death row in the U.S.

Carr is seen in ankle chains and handcuffs, led by a burly, fully-armed female guard as she leaves her cell. She wears bright orange overalls and trainers, her long, dark hair allowed to fall around her hunched shoulders.

So am I supposed feel sorry for these women. Daily Mail I think is trying that angle for the story. Prison isn’t supposed to be nice.

Gee, “fully armed” guards for convicted murderers. Well, what will they think of next - waiters for Charlie Manson’s meals?

Oh the horror of it!

You know, the Guardian, they’re British. FOPS!!

I never watch TV, so I’m not a good judge of this. But I can’t imagine why one earth anyone would want to watch a show like this.

To quote Heinlein:

I had no sympathy for him and still haven’t. That old saw about “to understand all is to forgive all” is a lot of tripe. Some things, the more you understand them, the more you loathe them. My sympathy is reserved for Barbara Anne Enthwaite whom I had never met, and for her parents, who would never again see their little girl.

Worthless British judicial system forces citizens to depend on baseball bats for self defense. After a few years of Shari Law, what will these self righteous pugs say then?

The thing with the Brits, is taht they never want to get their hands dirty at all. They always want someone else to do it for them.

Death Row isn’t very pleasant, and that’s a fact.

I sincerely think that it would be good to show to juvenile delinquents as a method to put them on the right path; forcing them to watch the pre-execution procedure would be an even better one.

I think that the initial slice across the throat pretty much renders one speechless for the duration of their beheading.

Except for the gasps, gags, and gurgles from the severed windpipe and esophagus. These noises continue at least until the spine is severed.

Music in the ears of Mahometans.

My mother used to say "Obey the law, or you'll go to prison and be raped."

Carr is a rare case from what I’ve read (several articles with varying slants). Nothing I’ve read makes her seem as bad as the average murderer, and she is clearly nowhere near as evil as the average murderer who gets death row. I still think execution is the right answer, since she confessed to a brutal murder of her boyfriend’s ex-whatever, but for once I’m not shocked that some people object to her sentence.

It shouldn’t be. I’m glad they’re locked up 23 hours a day. Gives them time to think about what they’ve done. No pity here.

Its madness that we pay for these people to be kept alive. Once the jury returns that guilty verdict they should be led outside the back of the courthouse and stomped to death by the victims families and jury. Won’t cost the taxpayer a dime.

Was this Prison Diaries or Dancing With The Stars?

The reason the Brits could not get their hands dirty, is the blood kept rinsing off the dirt.

If it were not for the Brits, we would not have all the trouble in countries whose borders were drawn to just about guarantee civil unrest forever.

Rightly; if they hadn’t colonized half the planet then half the planet wouldn’t be running to our first world countries. I mean, this is a nation presided over by a royal family taht left their own family (the Romanovs to be specific) to be butchered by the Bolsheviks because of bad PR.

They haev no business yammering about how the death penalty is bad and how ‘evil’ the US is for having it.

Disconcerting that such a comparison can be legitimately made.

They are being tortured by having to wait day in and day out and it would be a mercy to let them be executed quickly.

Interesting how when they survey the average “European” that they support the death penalty. Thank goodness they have the enlightened EU court who won’t allow such populist nonsense.

I don’t relish the execution of the death sentence for anyone, although most condemned undoubtedly deserve it.

By your logic we should abolish the death penalty and the punishment for the worst of the worst should be life in prison. There are places like that and they’re socialist hellholes being overrun with raping moslems with no fear of capital punishment.
