I'm sure we could hold people for cheaper than 75k/yr, perhaps if we cordoned off an area, such as a city, where laws did not apply and let them just live there?

Something like New York.

Stick them in an arena. Last man standing gets his freedom. Film it all and sell the footage on pay-per-view. If the one guy set free kills/rapes anyone after being released, give the victim's family half of the proceeds from the pay-per-view event.

I don't know why you guys aren't already doing this. America is really sh*tty at this whole Capitalist thing.
Naturally, we're waiting until we can build some kind of Matrix-like system. That way, the death matches can be done in impossible locales for viewer enjoyment without the ridiculous costs of actually transporting inmates to those locales.

Then, the winner gets released into the Matrix, only thinking he's free.

Pfft! He goes throw that much blow in a week. On the bright side, if he dies while in your custody, you can incinerate him and get 13 differint kinds of high by smoking his ashes.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't rape usually stem from a pathological issue with the convict? A need to dominate and demean the other? I seriously doubt any stint in prison led them to respect women to any degree significant enough to prevent future rapes, which really just leaves you with the hope that time spent would temper their desire to commit the crime.

But since it's not a rational decision to rape someone, I really doubt that they'd stop to think about that when their urges were hitting breaking point.

[EDIT]

I realize quoting the way I did made this seem like a counter, which wasn't what I meant. This is an open question that I'm wondering because of those quotes.

Well and it also doesn't help when rapists only get 5 years in prison. It's bad enough that so few people who are even charged with rape get convicted, but they get slaps on the wrist too.

I'm using that term inclusively. Maybe that was the wrong word to use. In other words, find ways to spend less on criminals as opposed to releasing criminals.

This is a stunning insight. I'm blown away. This high level of conceptual thinking leads to dozens of breakthrough ideas. To wit:

Find ways to stop people from committing crimes.
Find ways to prevent death from aging.
Find ways to make everyone happy, all the time.
Find ways to change car exhaust into clouds of clean water that fly to drought stricken areas.

This is amazing. Have you contacted any university philosophy departments? Once Peter Singer and Bernard-Henri Lévy hear about it, they'll doubtless kill themselves in shame and disgrace.

#49Almalieque, Posted: May 18 2012 at 12:35 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Sounds like ignorant laziness to me. It's called budget cuts. I don't have to know anything about the prison system to know that it isn't necessary to spend $15 million dollars a year on these criminals. If you think otherwise, then it's people like you that create these problems.
