Do they still use prisoners for labor, or has that become an unfair punishment and to harsh on the poor criminals? From what I see on television, prison just looks like an enclosed school/ mens club/ gym/ play time...idk, never been there, but the brochure doesn't lol all that bad.

Prisoners still do hard labor. I see them working with MoDot all the time. Just a few weeks ago in fact I saw a group in front of the Sonic area.
And no, it's not a mens club... it is that bad.

Why don't you go rob a bank and find out? Let us know how it is.
