I have never been to jail and would never want to. Jail is so scary to me. I have heard horrible stories about things that happen there. It is definetly a place I would not want to go or visit. When people go to jail I feel bad for them and I want to help them out so much and wish I could help them get their life striaght. It is impotant to me to help others. It gives me a good feeling inside. Some people can't be helped and do things that get them in jail. I hope I never have to exprience jail. It would definetly ruin my life if I ever had to go. Crime does not pay. It just gets you in big trouble.

Not yet but I happen to visit a jail sometime in the past. I'm sure people inside is not comfortable and I hope those inside are all guilty of the crimes/violations they committed because if not its definitely unfair.

As far as i am concerned, I think I am still a student now. I have not been to a jail,which I think is not a very good place for me, I think I will try my best to study hard to avoid of to be a criminal. I want to be a honest one in the world ,not be bad man.

I am scared as well, I wont lay even a single step in the jail knowing that you are being set aside from your family and friends. Plus the fact that you are not alone especially here in my country we have a very very small jail. So I hope and pray that everyone will not commit any crime because if there is no crime then there will be no one in jail. God bless

Hi,trukersheri I have never been to jail too and there is no doubt that I don't want to go to jail. I have watched some films and TV plays about the life of jail that is very hard and no free.But,I think those offenders must pay for their behaviours.So,we must be a lawful and moral people,don't you?

I've been to jail but it was because our Sorority had a medical mission for the people there. I've seen their condition and I don't think no one would ever want to be inside the bars. I've talked to some people there and the worst part of being jailed according to them is not being able to see your family. There are some who said were already abandoned by their family since they have not been visited for quite a while. One of them was left by his wife who got married to another man. Life their is so sad. I would define being jailed as very sad rather than scary based on my observation and based from the sroties of some people there. However, it would be different if you would be talking about that part of the jail where the most notorious criminals are kept. It's really scary there.

I've been to jail, we were visiting it during the class trip. It was an interesting experience for me, the rules were so strict there, we were searched through and asked to leave our cell phones outside. We saw all the basic rooms in jail and had a chance to enter the empty cells. It was interesting here, but I definitely wouldn't like to be sent there as a prisoner.

No I have never been in jail, and don't plan on going to jail. I have visited friends in jail before though, and it is enough to make me mind my p's & q's. I would not be able to deal with it. I'd go crazy.

You made me laugh for a minute there. My brother who is in prison has a tattoo on his chest in big letters. Crime pays. Now he has been in and out of jail all his life. I was just talking to my mother the other day telling her a woman would be a fool to hav ekids by him. What could he possibly tell his child about that tatto on his chest. LOL I was small and my other brother gave me a brown bag in the store and siad take what you want and put it here. I was caught and to scare me straight they put me in a cell till my mom came. I never stole or went abck to jail. I was in the holding cell not jail. It was terrible how hard the bed was. I was screaming the entire time I was there.

I have absolutely no desire to visit a prison for any reason whatsoever!!! x Some people do end up in hot water, maybe intentionally, maybe not, I can't imagine having your liberty taken away is a pleasant experience. Although I think the deterant for prison depends on the country, it would appear that UK prisons are a lot more tolerable than most countries especially the youth offending side. But I've never been so I wouldn't know x Here's to us keeping out of "jail" Mrsl x x

I too have never been to a jail. I too would never want to go to a jail. When I think of jail, I think about myself that how will I live there with the uncomfortable people surrounding me and ofcourse how will I live without my family. So, first of all, I won't do a thing itself that can send me to the jail and ruin my entire life. Once anybody experiences a few days in jail, everybody starts hating that person, so, I would never like to go to a jail. And when it comes about other persons who keep going to jail for the crime they have done, I don't think of helping them out, as they have done a mistake and so they are rightly being punished. But if a person is being sent to the jail without any reason, I would love to help that person out and feel very sad about him. Happy mylotting!
