I did not deliberately misquote, so I stand corrected.<quoted text>
Half of released prisoners are returned to jail within 3 years. Obviously our current prison system is not solving the problem. Plus we spend over $31,000 per inmate per year for a total of over $63 billion per year on a system that doesn't work. Lock 'em up and throw away the key does not work.
I said the right _results_ in 90 deaths a day, not that the right kills 90 people a day.
Our prisons are hotels with great freebies.. You get cable tv, workout rooms, free education, free sex changes, and a great place to get drugs and contraband. Prison needs to be a punishment, not a welcome place nor a free ride on society.
We could cut expenses buy getting the luxury items out. Keep the library and job training for those who are first time offenders and show rehabilitative behaviour. Make them grow thier own food. They are not there for exceptional behaviour, so forget comfort. Repeat violent offenders should leave prison in a pine box.
