People like these thugs shouldn't ever be allowed out of jail. Nor should they be jailed at the the Hilton prison. All comforts of jail should be taken away. It should be miserable so noone ever wants to go back! Enough slapping these criminals in the wrist, enough is enough!!

Luxury to me is having someone cook me three hot meals a day. Jail doesn't seem so bad when you could eat, sleep, read. Watch tv, free health care (better than mine), no electic bill, water bill, GROCERY BILL, or trash bill. Now I'm depressed. Make them cook for their selves and no one would be in prison.

Let them cook for themselves and there would be no prison. It would burn down within 3 days.
