I don't like prisoners. Nobody pretends to like them, but every once in a while, one of these people is right. And a society is judged by how it treats the least among it, not the best. I'm not worried about how presidents of banks and chairmen of the board and of country clubs are treated, or star quarterbacks, or other prima donnas. The job of the Constitution is to make sure that everyone is treated properly. [Prisoners] fall into the everybody category.
