When did I say it's a good place to learn to be a criminal?
I didn't read the link but I read it along time ago, pretty sure there is a thread here about it. iirc the guy didn't have a great time in prison because he aspired for allot more in life, but for some who didn't want to work and didn't want freedom, it might be an ok life style.
I apologize, you did not. You said that the only thing making prisons bad are prisoners. This is as wrong as what I thought you said.
However, on the second part of your post, that is nothing to do with what I read in that thread. The guy did not have any goal but survival.
He gets into those that want out and those that don't care, but he never says anything about anything in prison being a decent lifestyle.
