  • I think it would depend on what they did and why they did it.
  • no i wouldnt-we all make mistakes and hopefully learn from them-i got five dollars that says 99.9999% of the people who answer this question break the law in some form or the other everyday-heck it is almost impossible to drive without breaking the law-just my thoughts-cool question-smile and enjoy the day
  • i dunno wot he/she sed (down below)(what did he/she say?)
  • No. Everyone makes mistakes. If you have learned and bettered yourself, no problem at all.
  • It would depend on what crime they committed. If it was murder or some sexual offense, I would think much less of them.
  • Honestly, I would have to determine what the crime was, and if it completely conflicts with my morals. Someone who is placed in a super max facility might have committed a horrendous crime like murder or rape. But also it could be fraud and other things like that. I would have to consider if they did their time and were sorry for their actions, and also how well I know the person... then and only then could I make a decision.
  • It depends... What did you do, Riff?!? :P
  • No not really. Would i say hey I want to date this person? I probably wouldn't but I wouldn't care if its someone i'm friends with online.
  • If they were remorseful and rehabilitated I would be fine with them. Of course I wouldn't want to get chummy with a murderer or molester in real life.
  • Not necessarily. If I already liked and respected them, I couldn't judge them for something in their past that put them in jail. Unless it was something really heinous...
  • I did for a while, but I couldn't stay mad at Marlene.
  • If it were a female, It'd be kind of exciting, actually. I like bad girls.
  • I am not really sure, but I'd like to think I'd at least give them a chance. After all they've been judged and served their time.
  • for a moment perhaps but then again, we would barely know one another at all. In the end, I don't suppose it would matter at all.
  • No. On the internet, you are who you present yourself to be through your words, not your past actions. It would probably give me a different insight into some of their questions and answers. Now, if the online friendship were were progressing to the point of meeting in real life, I'd want many more details and would have to think hard about whether to meet them or not. But I also feel that way about online friends who haven't been in prison!
  • No, i think it can give an excellent resource of answers, they do a lot of thinking in there, soul searching whatever else, but i think that this web site its the last thing they want to do after being in there... Trust Me.
  • Definately not!
  • It depends on what for.. Child molestion and rapist, I would not talk to them... Other wise it depends , Never judge a book by its cover... I am on probation for fighting with another family and I never even hit anyone ,,I was trying to break it up and my neices were acting like fools but since the two of them were in college I took the rap,, So again never judge a book by its cover
  • there are very few max prisons in the uk but ive been in prison for drink driving does that make me a bad person?this was thirteen years ago and i now refuse to drive and the chances are i will never drive again i didnt hurt anybody but if i did i couldnt live with my self. not everybody who has done time is bad
  • I know this isn't really the answer you were looking for, but it is an answer: I wouldn't care much if someone whom I chatted with in person on a daily basis had served time in Max. I determine who a person is based on who they are not who they were. People are not elements from the periodic table, they change. For that matter, periodic elements change too, so nothing in creation is stagnant. I do think poorly of those who do not consider that a person can make a mistake, no matter how heinous, and cannot have paid for it, learned, become a better person, and moved on. Not that anything I think might matter to one who would judge someone else for past deeds. Let he who has never sinned cast the first stone.
  • A lot depends on why he was in prison. If he was in prison because he raped a child or even a woman, I wouldn't want him as a friend. Years ago, a very good friend of mine tried to rape my 5-year-old granddaughter. He was convicted and sent to prison. I didn't learn until his trial that he had been a convicted child molester in the past. We don't have anything whatever to do with him anymore. Admittedly some people change but the difficulty we have in choosing friends is, how do we know that that person has really changed? Is your friendship with this man more important than the safety of your family? If not, then avoid him.
  • No, for I too spent some time in jail, so I know first hand people make mistakes.
  • For as long as that person's behavior and/or actions don't affect me, I wouldn't care
  • No why judge someone for their past?I wouldn't cuase the past is the past why judge them now?
  • I think the prejudice begins the moment you look for a reason to dislike. If you start to consider a person's past, you are already going down that road. Sometimes the worst mistake a human being can make is by rejecting a person for their past. The idea of even what they were in for is just as wrong, because regardless of what a person did in the past, if they paid their debt to society, they are just as much a citizen (and person) as one who never went to prison. Just as much as many criminals don't like to change, there are some that do, and just as there is so much of society that likes to PRE judge ex felons, there are some that will accept them if they are willing to change.
  • There is not 1 person on the face of this earth that does'nt have skeletons in their closet.They were just lucky enough not get caught at whatever it is they may have done. Who am I to judge a person? That person does not have to stand in front of me on judgement day!He/she has to stand in front of the Lord up above to answer to.PPL have chemical imbalances in their brains that cause them to react and act out in certain ways.Also many ppl have had trauma in their childhood yrs that has affected them.I don't know what lays in the core of his/her brain nor do I know his/her upbringing.I will admit its hard for me to swallow child crimes/as I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuses. And to boot I just served 3 1/2 yrs in prison for a drug crime/Im on post release supervision/Im not no bad evil person.Im a normal human being.And while in prison I met all walks of life/all ages/and a majority of them were the most kindest good natured ppl Ive ever met in my life & I would be in shock when I found out their crime/but I did not stop talking with them due to that.And in all honesty I lived with a majority of ppl who had killed a person 1 way or another.I did not waver.A convicted murderer bought my clothes to come home in.She's been in 15 yrs.yeah.I couldnt even get that from ppl I know.I hope I opened a few hearts as well as eyes.Take Care.You have an admitted true woman who just shared for many to see that she is a convicted criminal /will you not allow me to answer questions now/or not read my answers or posts? Do You see what Im getting at.I still act, look,human/I breathe & bleed as a human/I have a heart & have feelings as a human/I have a brain & smarts as a human.Do I qualify to be human?By all means I don't write in a nasty way.Im no different than you or anybody else is for that matter.
  • Doesnt that really depend on what they did? I dont want to associate with a pedophile, other than that anyone can make one mistake.
  • Murder, Rape and Abusing a child are the only things I would have an issue about. That is sick! Warped! And I wouldn't wanna be a part of that persons chat! Those things are NOT little MISTAKES that you "OOPS" killed your wife! And Maximum Security tells me it wasn't that he/she hotwired a car or broke into someones house. So yes I might have a problem with that. +5
  • It would very much depend on what the charge had been and how long they had been going straight.
  • No, because I know that that person has paid for his crimes, and since he has made it even with justice, he is now better than most of the people in America, who have not tasted justice before.
  • Depends on what they did. The only thing that would definitely change my opinion of them for the worse is if it was for rape.
  • Hell ya, wheres the noose, let's have us a good old fashion lynching lol I believe everyone should have a chance to become a good person and can become one if they so choose, so no, I would not think differently until proven otherwise...
  • no. people make mistakes and he paid his dues and did his time. everyone deserves a second chance
  • Not at all -
  • No I would not care.. everyone makes mistakes.. everyone i beleive deserves a second chance..
