Philosophy Wire: Feeling important, prisons, humans…

690098-prisonPhilosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2013-04-08]: A man who repeatedly used phony credentials to gain entry into New York City's jails may get his wish to do more time. Prosecutors told a judge on Thursday that they want Matthew Matagrano to be locked up for 10 years. Matagrano, a former inmate, pleaded not guilty to felony burglary in Manhattan Supreme Court. The judge doubled his bail to $100,000 and ordered him to get medical attention. The New York Post reports that according to police statements released in court, Matagrano said he repeatedly sneaked into jails because the people inside were "nice" and made him "feel important". [source: web news] Don’t we all choose our own “prison” based on that?
