ah, this is a problem....

I work in a male prison and these old-timers are VERY costly to incarcerate. They have big medical problems and are frequently carted out to the local hospital for stays (on the public's dime)..if they get cancer, the State will treat very aggressively, no matter the age or how long their sentence is (hey, if dude is not getting out until 2034, let him go...). At least my State does this, worried about lawsuits.

I would rather use the bed/cell space for an offender that scares me...but that is just my own private opinion. Make her do something useful for someone else in the community...make her contribute instead of taking.
