    H'ard time' and 'lockup' on NatGeo

    Do any of y'all with hard time or lockup on NatGeo? I feel like it gives me a little insight into the mentality of the bad guys. Granted its a sanitized and choreographed version to some extent but it still gives a little glimpse of how criminals think.

    I have it on record weekly,Most of the habitual thugs do not want to change what they do which is robbing stealing,dealing drugs and just being huge cancerous lesions on society,my question is since they are not socially able to fit into our society why do we keep them locked up where we have to pay to keep them fed and clothed.
    I've said it before we put rabid dogs down,until you make the consequences bad enough they will keep repeating the behaviour.
    They had one Lock down show in Russia,the prisoners were expected to act a certain way and they did!I'm pretty sure if they tried to assault any staff they would either live to regret it,or it wouldn't be something they survived

    Some of the people on "Hardcore Pawn" are the same way. They shout rudely at a business owner and use bluff tactics like an ape to try to get what they want, and have to be dragged out by force. On the street, if unavoidable, these people would probably have to be dealt with in a more serious manner. Most "successful" criminals have decided long ago to act like criminals and act suddenly and ruthlessly. Surprise is their best weapon, and ours too.
    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    I agree with the OP's post entirely. I think it's important to try and understand the thought process of the criminal element in our society. I imagine watching TV shows can yield some useful insight so long as one remembers that these shows are edited reality. In my opinion TV has about as much in common with actual reality as free sparring in a dojo does with a streetfight but then again, I have never actually seen the shows mentioned so what do I know?

    The sanitized version of those shows is frightening enough. If they can't make people realize how dangerous some people are, then nothing will.

    Ever notice how when they get thrown out, they still have the wireless mic pack attached?

    It's one thing to know thine enemy. It's another to try to get in their head and understand why they do what they do. I find the latter a nauseating waste of time. The bad ones are thoughtless, sociopathic animals that care only about immediate gratification, and are largely devoid of reasoning and conscience. Overwhelming violence is often the most effective way of dissuading them.

    Naturally, this is my personal opinion, based on personal experience.

    Yeah I watch it, among other programs as well.

    The key to winning any conflict, is to know who your opponent is, and to an extent, understanding what makes them tick.

    Now granted, during the course of an average lethal force confrontation which is usually over with in a matter of a couple seconds, all you really need to know is that the person trying to kill you is ruthless, uncaring and without a conscious. He will absolutely take your life in a heartbeat if you don't act to stop it.

    The fact that afterwards, whether he cares about what he did or not... whether he has regrets for what he did, or not, is of little consequence after you're dead.

    I've realized a long time ago that some people (easy to identify) just don't care about anything and would shank their brother for a bag of dope.

    So I guess I don't need a TV show to confirm that for me.
