If prison was that bad, why do people keep going back?
There are a lot of reasons. Mostly, it's drug addiction. But it sure isn't because people like it there.

L00k what grandma found......
Wikipedia:
Numbers and Costs[edit]
The United States, with an incarcerated population of 3.3 million, has the largest prison population of any country in the world.[6] The US spends approximately $52 billion on corrections each year, with the cost of providing a college education to an incarcerated student at $2,000 to $3,782 compared to $32,000 to $40,000 per year to incarcerate the same individual.[11].
An American study found "One million dollars spent on correctional education prevents about 600 crimes, while that same money invested in incarceration prevents 350 crimes. Correctional education is almost twice as cost-effective as a crime control policy" [14].
Reductions in Recidivism[edit]

You don't have the slightest idea what that means, do you nana? You have been complaining about prison education, and you quote a wiki entry that suggests that "correctional education is almost twice as cost-effective as a crime control policy" as straight incarceration.

You also haven't realized that when they are referring to education they mean remedial and vocational education and not college. It's probably for the best that you are done.

He wasn't. But your implication was that violent murderers are just fine as long as they are behind bars. Turns out not to be true. And if you doubt me, by all means, Google prison and murders.

What you will find are swept under the rug stories about murders in prison; something the MSM doesn't like to report like those stories about people who saved their lives or lives of others because they were carrying a firearm.

You should analyze the per capita murder rate in correctional institutions and compare it to the outside community.

I'm sure it's much less, but it doesn't discount the fact that it does happen in prison. These are violent animals we have locked up in there.

You may be correct with drug related crime, but not drugs alone.

Sellers and buyers are in a world where theft, violence and even murder are part of the game, especially in the inner-city.

Isn't crime the topic of the discussion?
