You are so right, Truth! I have always been a huge proponent of Penal Farms. True penal farms are self-sufficient facilities where the incarcerated learn real life through hard work. Our youth does not need to go into prisons where they learn the 'tricks of the trades'. In a penal farm, they learn to grow, harvest and cook their food. They learn how to raise animals, how to maintain the grounds that they are responsible for. They learn that life can actually be good when you do good things with your hands, instead of bad.

@ Truthseeker. That all makes sense, but you have forgotten that prisons are a money making institution along with our states, which gets funding from taxpayers.

The reason this is happening is because the criminals in this state and country do not fear prison. Most criminals have it better in prison than they do on the "outside". If this country would quit coddling criminals and make prison a place they dread then their attitudes might change. No free medical, no television, no libraries and gyms, etc. Criminals should be put to work earning their keep. They should be worked at least 12 hours a day and worked hard enough that all they want to do the rest of the days is sleep. Overcrowding should not even be a consideration. If you don't want to be in an overcrowded prison, then don't commit crimes. We should not be concerned with criminals rights. A person who breaks our laws does not deserve to be protected by our laws.
