Are these guys going to prison going to come out even more militarized?

A Jan. 6 rioter and alleged Nazi sympathizer who once likened the attack on the U.S. Capitol to the Civil War has been sentenced to four years behind bars, according to CNN.

Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, an ex-U.S. Army reserve officer, was convicted this past May of five charges related to the events of Jan. 6, including a felony obstruction charge. In addition, Hale-Cusanelli will serve three years of supervised release following his sentence, and must also pay $2,000 in restitution.

During the sentencing, Hale-Cusanelli begged the judge for forgiveness, according to CNN, saying that he had "disrespected my uniform," and that the judge would "never see [his] face again."


Seems to me he has to admit tfg is a con man and has done great harm to our country and its Constitution. Then, maybe, he could be believed.

1. With any luck, they'll come out of prison thinking:

"I'll do whatever it takes to never have to go back in there again."

4. some will

But those who find a sort of "brotherhood" inside will be strengthened in their darker ambitions.

2. Yes.

And prison life will be (and already is) an opportunity for organizing ruffians and the disaffected into such groups as Oath Keepers and Proud Boys.

5. It would be great if we applied more thought to prisons...

...and what it is we are trying to accomplish.

We've gone full bore retribution and don't really attempt rehabilitation.

6. The Scandinavian prison systems

should be a model for us. Itís not perfect but it focuses more on rehabilitation, education, etc. rather than revenge punishment.

10. Yup


People here would go on about "coddling criminals," but our prison system appears to make a significant proportion of the inmates into more dangerous criminals than when they entered.

It should be about 'what outcomes do we want'. These things can be measured, but nobody wants to hear about it.

7. I think many, if not most

of them will violate the terms of their supervised release and wind up back in prison not once but many times. Some will spend their whole life in that revolving door.

I have little hope that many of them will ever lead productive lives, and I doubt many of them have since the day they were born.

8. Probably.

Our prison system needs to be reformed from the top down.

9. Your 'Seems to me...' statement is an outstanding idea...

Any of these fools want to NOT go to jail (or be let out early) should have to record one...

And have it played of Fox News at least once in order for them to get out.

Think Fox would help out all those Fellow Patriots that way?

Hahahahahhaa...no, I didn't either.

12. I think about former Scientologists trying to reason with the cult mentality.

Fixing the prison system was on Obama's agenda. But imagine the racists in charge of our penal system wanting to help him.
