I think all prisoners should be made to work 60hrs a week no exceptions. Whether it be stamping license plates, growing food, laundry, or carving headstones. The warden of the prison has a workforce, He should use it. If you know that when one goes to prison, You'll et your back broke!!! Gives these maggots more incentive to do the right thing, or not get caught. The prisons in this day and age should especially be able to turn a buck!!! Selling the goods the prisoners produce.

EXACTLY! I had to laugh reading that part about getting their tax refunds. Does he or she actually believe they worked and paid taxes? LOL. You're right, they'll just get more desperate and rob us more.
Actually, there are plenty of people who are in jail that DID work AND pay taxes before being incarcerated.

A friend of mine... someone I've known for over 20 years, is currently on jail. Before he went in, he worked 50-60 hours a week. He wasn't holding up stores or breaking into peoples' houses, or selling drugs. He worked an honest job and paid plenty of taxes.

I'm sure there are plenty of welfare suckers in jail, too... but not ALL of them are. Get a clue before you post, you jack-asses.

If we had prisons like that, the judges out of knowing that they were harsh, would more likely reserve prison sentences for the more serious offenders. And levy fines and probation at higher levels. Allevieating overcrowdng. Making more income for the state in fines, instead of paying $30,000 a year to house, and feed them.

To be precise, $68,200 per prisoner per year.

I wonder what the average cost of the house-arrest prisoner is??

They are there by their own actions. why should the public pay ?

Also, if there is so much overcrowding there, send them over to Iraq to help out our guys.
Right, because we know that our service members really want to babysit criminals from the states, in addition to the risks they already take. And gee, the cost of dealing with "friendly fire" accidents would be so much less than the costs of incarceration, right? Not.

Hey aresewipe, less than 5% of the Ludlow population had jobs upon entering jail. If your friend wasn't into kiddie porn he wouldn't be in jail, and it's just a matter of time before they catch you.
So? Then he was part of the 5%. He's not even in Ludlow...

Do you have the stats to back that allegation up? Link, please.

Oh, and he sure as hell wasn't there for child pornography you sick bastard! Don't project your sick fantasies on to others, please.

Of course you are out of your Fing mind, but we all know that.
I can see the IRS trieing to collect taxes on that B&E that guy did, or taxes on that bank robbery. I bet criminals get lots of tax returns from the robberys and heists they pull.
Stupid ideas like yours are so short-sighted and idiotic that I think you set a new low in internet IQ's. No, no, I think you have actually brought down the collective IQ of the internet as a whole in one fell swoop.
As you have STOLEN the Registered IDENTITY of a member of Topix's discussion group, your words and thoughts are MEANINGLESS. If you can't come up with an original member name, you obviously can't come up with an original (not to mention truthful) response.

You like it when I give it to you from behind, so what are you complaining about?
If you wake up in the morning, it's because God spared your life and is giving you another chance. "Be not deceived , God is not mocked". Neither am I. I don't care who you are ,even if you're satan himself. If you want to debate me face to face (highly unlikely as you have proven repeatedly to be an absolute coward) I welcome the opportunity. Bring all your friends if you like. I'll just bring myself. Sounds like a fair debate to me. Winning arguments with scum like you is like riding a bike. I never forget how.
You may wonder why I invited you and all of your friends to this debate. It is NOT because I laugh at the face of danger. It is because I AM the face of danger. Do you have the courage ? I truly doubt it. If you were a fish , you would most likely be a large mouth *ss. Courage or cowardice. The choice is yours.
