No society reform for people before they get to that point, no rehabilitation for some while they are locked up. A lot of people wanting three squares & free healthcare.

Many mentally ill get sent there since not many states have "asylums" anymore for the criminally insane or the average mentally ill person.  The lack of guidance for many people and outlets for them to learn contrustive skills also creates more chaos.

Those who got out most likely to go back in...

Because we haven't legalized certain drugs & prostitution.

Also, bc people get a free ride to college in jail, a bed, clothes & 3 meals a day, not much to really be afraid of.

I personally feel jails need to be harsher.

people who are let out find it hard to get accustomed to life outside. inside they had a free home, three free meals, and they didnt have to work. so they do stuff to get back in. just my opinion.
