You're right, of course--it's the twisted logic that does it (although "insane" is no more accurate a word than is "evil"--they are both generalizations for broad ranges of more accurate adjectival phrases.)

"Prisons are full of entirely sane people," how do you know this? Do you vist prisions frequently?

Prisons are full of criminals who are bad at their jobs, no?
