Simple question but would like some response to it. A couple days back I was watching MTV News and they covered a Hip Hop convention where Eminem was encouraging the youth to vote. Apparently he can't vote becasue he is a convicted felon. Recently in SA, there was a court ruling which basically gave the vote to a couple thousand prisoners. Now, what should the proper democratic stance be on convicts? Should they be given the vote or not. After all they are citizens of the country but on the other hand, they have broken the rules of the country. i really don't have a view on this issue and was hoping u guys can give me some direction here!!
