Benevolent Misanthrope: BarkingUnicorn: Inmates need hobbies more than regular folks.

They need farking JOBS.  Filing legal actions is their hobby.  Having worked in prisons, I can say unequivocally - these folks are criminals and they spend most of their time sitting around thinking up ways to fark with anyone in authority.  IMHO, they should be required to work, at a job appropriate to their physical capacity, no exceptions, and if they file a frivolous lawsuit, their sentence gets doubled until they're in for life, at which point the last step is loss of a chance at parole.

But then, I'm a realist.


Stop that. Nobody wants to hear your rational solutions.

The trick is balancing that with the need to prevent them from being a source of exploitable labor because the warden's brother needs a bunch $1/hr laborers because he's too cheap to pay the local Mexicans $8/hr. I know a lot of prisoners work in activities that are focused on the prison itself; it seems like more might be able to be done on that front but I don't have insight into that world. In your experience, how many of the jobs that are currently done by contractors could instead be done by prisoners?

/Of course they also need to release hundreds of thousands who probably don't belong there in the first place, but that's another discussion.


Hey, you too stop being rational. This is a Fark thread.
