Been lurking on these forums for months now. Right now, I’m passing time away in class, and a serious question popped into my mind, which oddly enough served as the stimulus for me to post here…
Why do more people serving life sentences in prison NOT commit suicide?
IMO, the point of life is to strive for (and hopefully attain) happiness…love, indulging in your passions (weightlifing, travelling, music, etc), and whatever else you may think of. When all these things are taken away, what’s the point of living anymore? When all these necessities (NOT privileges) are deprived from us, all we have to look forward to is death, and, well, joining a prison gang. Not much, so why not welcome the end sooner rather than later?
Just my two cents. If anyone has something to add, chime in.
