I havn’t defended French prisons, i just laugh at the outrage expressed by Americans w.r.t. French prisons when the US penal system looks so problematic.
i havent seen anyone yet express outrage. also, you acknowledge yourself that you are comparing French PRISONS, with the US PENAL SYSTEM. you cant compare the two. it doesnt work
i havn’t compared the two yet. Also i am wondering about your definition of “outrage”.
“ours is terrible, but at least it isn’t as bad as FRANCE’S”.
no, actually, ours is quite good. im not at all pleased with our justice and penal system, but the physical prisons are quite good. not even relative to france, but in general.
ahhh ok. So the prison buildings in America are fine - the prisons themelves suck then?
I guess by this standard, i could mock just about everything American all the time . . . .
Oh yeah - i already do
and yet, when americans mock anything about another country, there is such hostility from you.
Also i was exaggerating. I criticise much more than i mock. The only thing American that i mock is their President. Sadly too much that is Canadian is a reflection of American “values” so i would find myself far too often mocking issues of my own nation (which i already do, by the way).
this post was not me. and the quotes are all screwed up, so i have no idea what point was made. if it was you, CC, like i assume, please repost
