It pisses me off that kids are being shoved in classrooms of 1 teacher and 30 kids when it used to be 15-20 per teacher and now their cutting PE and other extra curricular activities because we can't afford it. WTH we can afford for prisoners to have tv's, video games, gyms, cells with beds, sinks, toilets and electricity. What is wrong with making a prison a prison with 2x2 cells, no beds, a hole to piss in and small rations. Maybe then our country would be safer. Heck no. we have to make prison a luxury for what would otherwise be low lifes who can't find jobs or homes and then they commit more crimes to go back to prision because at least then they'd have a warm place to live with food to eat. I just don't get the justice system. Sorry my friend got me started when she showed me a utube video of a baby that was beaten and raped and then her parents only got 18 years in prison! My co-workers and I got on this topic.Answer Question

i heard a tale (that I hope was true) about a sheriff in Arizona I think who turned the jail into a series of tents, made the in-mates wear neon pink jump suits, fed them only bologna sandwiches at lunch and dinner, and cut the heating and AC bills to nothing, and the rate of repeat offenders is like zero.
Sherriff Joe Arpaio..Maricopa Co, Arizona~ I met him at a fundraiser in Phoenix. He ROCKS!

Prisons have alot of money? Many states are releasing prisoners early because they cannot afford to keep them. Look it up. Perhaps the luxuries you mentioned were purchased in more "fruitful" days.
As to this question :What is wrong with making a prison a prison with 2x2 cells, no beds, a hole to piss in and small rations?
Cruel and unusual punishment-Eighth Amendment of the US constitution.
