Question by The Equalist: Do prisoners who do 30 years, or even 15 years, get a culture shock when released due to technology & fashion?
For example, I imagine someone who went to prison in 1992 being released today.

How do they deal psychologically with seeing smart phones, more modern cars, the internet , changes in fashion & music, new buildings & businesses & faces in the neighborhoods they came from, etc.?

    TV in prison is censored, especially in higher-security prisons in blocks w/ violent criminals. Word gets in from new guys about happenings outside – but it’s difficult to imagine the changing world for the inmates. Once they get out, though, they would still feel a substantial “culture shock.”

    I’m sure they would feel out-of-touch and overwhelmed. I feel that way, and I haven’t been to prison.

    I worked at a prison for almost a year. Most of those people are brain damaged from alcohol and drugs and are parasites on society. They will NEVER FIT IN. I know that sounds harsh, I used to believe they could be rehabilitated, but experience is the best teacher.
