What about the positive facts? If the prison opens in Thomson, it will not only be utilized, but it will create jobs. The facility was built for a purpose. It needs to open. People need jobs, and this would be an opportunity for those people.

Dipti, closing one prison and opening another does NOT create jobs....it just moves them from one spot to another. If you are an example of prospective employees for that region then I think they had better rethink opening Thomson.

Dipti, go back to drinking your kool-aid, and worship your false idol/leader some more. You sheep can not see past the end of your nose..Hey, I think Obama's civilian corps would hire you, so don't worry. The facility was built for a purpose, and in a short time you shall see that, but it will be too late for you then..
