Break the law and get a free college education !
Follow the law and pay $50,000 or more for a college education.
Something is wrong here.
I didn't know that creating crime was a liberal agenda .
Like I've said before here on topic......crime pays in the welfare state ...I mean Empire State .

Beware of liberals posing as Americans

This is absolutely insane! I worked my way through college. My parents worked their butts off to help me pay for my undergraduate degree. I worked my way through my Master's degree. Put many classes on 0% interest credit cards and paid it off over time. I guess the smarter way would have been to commit multiple crimes and have the taxpayers pay for my degrees. Unreal.

In all cases where the gov't has used Eductation for prisoners, they have seen a drastic decrease in repeat offenders....in many cases it's been a 40-90% Decrease. I'm not for rewarding someone for messing up.....but what this actually does is reward taxpayers by reducing the future prison costs. If we can help save tax dollars by decreasing repeat offenders, don't we owe it to Taxpayers and potential victims.

Build prison camps and make them earn their keep. Don't punish the hard working law abiding and reward the law breakers.
Make sure they never want to return to those prison camps. Never.
Cuomo is all for punishing the legal law abiding gine owners "Safe Act"?
While rewarding armed robbers and murderers.
Yes liberalism is a mental disorder.

As a republican if someone came to me said...I figured out a way to save tax dollars...by having less repeat offenders...and make taxpayer safer by helping convert past criminals into a productive part of society...then I'd say I'm all for it. 40-90% decrease in repeat offenders for prisoners that get an education. This is a huge win for taxpayers.....and a way to reduce our taxes...and it's a huge win for society...b/c we will have less victims when these prisoners are eventually released. And this is coming from somone that is proud to say he never voited for Cuomo...and never will. I'm not sure how the unSafe Act relates to this article...but it's a bogus law that was jammed down our throats and will not make society any safer. Google Educating prisoners...and you will find nothing but proof that it saves taxpayer dollars and it good for law abiding citizens. Don't support this b/c you support prisoners...support it b/c taxpayers want to spend less money and we want our families safer.

You'll never reduce the prison population because of the "Prison for profit" model. As long as the prisons make a profit, the prison guard unions will insist that the prison population be maintained at 100%, and the police & local judges WILL find a way to keep them full.

And "real criminals" don't need a second chance. They should have been shot at the scene because of the second amendment. Allowing law abiding citizens to defend themselves would reduce the number of repeat offenders, because they would be dead!
