This a part of the population where we hardly ever want to wrap our heads around it: People in Prison. I actually was shocked when I realized that I had never thought about people in prison being or getting old with all the common problems which arise with ageing.
They get older and die as everyone else. Lately there was a debate here in Italy where we live: Should the hardcore Mafia boss Toto Riina, who has been sentenced for about seven lifetimes in prison, be released because he seems to be dying? Is it humane and right to grant him the dignity of a death in the family? Or would he, on his death bed, still operate in his role of THE BOSS and organize other mischievous deeds?
In our show we talk about less prominent people who literally seem to be forgotten by everyone and disappeared from the public awareness.
