Well, the first step is to plan for there to be a trial. The second step is to avoid solitary confinement unless it's necessary. Few of the prisoners were murderers. I don't think any were rapists. If I recall correctly, the teleporting girl wasn't even all that violent.
I've tried to get passed that aspect of The Flash, because the show does have things I like, but I couldn't.


Using your example, the teleporter, that episode, spoilers, showed her breaking her man out of prison.. So attempting to just put her into a prison, would seem a little silly.

Of course if you think about meta-humans in the real world, every government would be catching meta-humans to experiment on them, to steal their powers so they could weaponize it, being put in a safe prison under star labs, would seem like a more ethical thing to me.

Sure it brings up matters of ethics, and the rights of villains, and even could bring up a registration act where meta-humans have to register that they have their powers, etc, much like in X-Men, and Civil War that is coming up. And or what do they do with them when they put them in prison, if they are violent. Do they rehabilitate them so they can return to society, or will they forever be branded as outcasts.. So there are many things they could do with such a concept, if they wanted to...

Or we just ignore all of that, and just enjoy a fun show with the flash in it.. Nudge Nudge

I did wonder though.. Did they constantly feed them while they were in there? Did they let them use the bathroom and amenities like that?

It looks like somebody feeds them and keeps their cells clean. That's something to wonder about. And a prison like theirs is certain a necessity when dealing with the type of villains they have. But they can hold people in there in a much more humane fashion, and involve proper trials. I can accept that Welles would be OK with the set-up, but I'm not OK with Barry being OK with it.

But I will start watching Flash and Arrow again. Does anyone have recommendations about which episodes to watch first?

If I recall correctly, Barry wasn't ok with it at first, but then it become the only thing that made sense to do. At least he wasn't just shooting them with arrows until they stopped living like Green Arrow.

The shows interweave with each other. Going back and forth and crossing over. So it is best to watch them in order with each other, to know the full story. Green Arrow was first for 2 seasons, and then ran together for season 3 and 1, and now are running together for 4 and 2.
