Yes, they are people, too. Having a criminal record doesn't necessarily always make someone a bad person. Anyone can make a mistake. No one is perfect. We all say and do things we regret. Maybe they are falsely accused. Even if they are guilty, I am not their judge. In prison, you have to treat inmates with decency and like human beings or you will have riot conditions. Even those who we label as society's outcasts: prostitutes, the homeless, alcoholics and addicts and inmates are people too. They are worthy of understanding and compassion. Everyone is someone.
