Prison ReformRehibilitation is a wonderful idea. Being a Stat-Katt I find the statistics very discouraging. The bottom line is simply that it is not working.
Should not prisons be punative rather than Motel (6)'s? Would it be cruel and inhuman to oblige prisoners to work.....hard every day......become productive......pay them a small wage which would first be given to their victims? Profits from their labours could be used to reduce the yearly cost of incarceration......averaging about $25,000.00 per inmate.
