What kinds of rights should criminals have?

They should not have any. They should lost them when they decided to take on the rights of their victims. Unfortunately they have the right to remain in silence, the representation of an attorney to defend their case, if they can not afford one, the county should provide them with a public one.

So, you mean AFTER someone has been found guilty of a felony, right? They have the right to a number of things such as food and so much exercise a day. They get letters and phone calls (unless there is a mitigating reason), and a chance at parole when the judge indicated. They can petition for other things.

They should be afforded the same rights as the criminals who put them in jail.

Criminals do not have rights. These are reserved for those who are accused of crimes.

If they are convicted, then no rights at all. Well maybe the right to not be beaten randomly by the guards. But no tv, no weights, no etc etc. They should have the same treatment given to them that they dished out. Rape someone, then be raped. Murder, then be murdered in the same fashion that they murdered. The same torture that they dished out should be done to them.

I'll assume you're asking this in the US.

If so, then the answer is they should have the same rights as everyone else. Any right you take away from the accused you take away from yourself.

how are you using the word criminal? As in one that isnt caught or one that is incarcerated in prison? Its too broad a question to answer in this forum. Perhaps you can be more specific?

Criminals (meaning convicts I guess) should have basic human rights. They should be able to appeal their cases, get proper food and water, a little entertainment should be okay (they're not caged animals). They should get clean, safe quarters to sleep in, without over-crowding. They should be able to go to a make-shift temple to practice their religion on their day of sabbath.

See, some posters (querubin, marlenek) go straight for the "eye for an eye" or these guys are murders, rapists...etc.

Well, that's jumping to extreme scenarios. A very high percentage of convicts are men, 25-35, who got arrested for drug violations or outstanding warrants because of an initial drug charge. They're not violent offenders and can be rehabilitated.
