Already on parole, that alone says something, now selling drugs. No wonder the same ones do this over & over NO HARSH PUNISHMENT.

Thats ignorant our jail time pumps out more gang minded drug dealers than any other institution in the world. You want criminals to pay back their debt to society? Well its not being done by having them locked up in cells with other criminals. How about putting them to work on farms to produce local food? something productive and out of the box rather than perpetuating the same broken system for longer amounts of time.

You are certainly right, they should be forced to do something & not just sit in a comfy air conditioned/ heated jail with a choice of meals & television. They should be doing local farm work or working on the highways, SOMETHING. If jails were not so comfy we would not have REPEAT offenders. Set the air conditioner at 90 set the heat at 55 & feed them like SHERIFF JOE & put them to work like Sheriff JOE & we would not have all the repeats.

The jail conditions are not exactly fun. The "bunks" they sleep on have no matts. The food is grade D not suited for human consumption. Its not a picnic, but it institutionalizes people. I think your right about the work part. They should be put on organic farms across the globe to grow food for society.

I can tell you that the air conditioner is cooler that I can keep my house & the heat is higher than my own home in winter. There is a choice of menus at each meal to. A jail should NOT have any of this. Our schools are closing tighten up the budget on jails & prison life

Yeah, that's what I want. Drug dealers growing my food. Is is still organic, if it has meth residue on it?

That is a lame argument there is little to no way possible for meth residue to end up in your food when inmates would be in a controled working enviorment. If everyone is so concerned about how much money is being put into the prison system than maybe we should reconsider what crimes are worth putting people away for. something like 1/4 of our prison is filled with people who have commited non violent drug charges...people with addictions who were in the wrong place in the wrong time..
