Prison costs taxpayers 228 billion$ ( as of a few years ago) there approximately 130 million taxpayers ... if I did the math right the cost of stupidity on each taxpayer is 1700 $ each year - just for the prison system.

But, if we make bigger prisons and keep them all full then the cost per prisoner will go down...

We see how well gun control works in inner city usa via Chitcago. Some idiots watch piers morgan and use his facile argument that britain has less gun crime- we dont want to be them so why use them as an example for anything? What has britain ever invented in the past 20 years? Their govt has them shut down like a herd of sheep vs the usa still has opportunity to be a wild horse. Until penned up in the prison.

I live just outside chitcago and my new aunt has to open her mouth on gun control every time she sees me. She rents out a house in chitcago she got via widow for 3500 a month. She commented "whats the difference between NY and chitcago, and why do we have all this gun crime?" I told her the parents suck and she got defensive that I dont have kids so I cant talk about parenting? Has she met the inner city parents??? The kids dont just shoot each other out of nowhere.
Then when I said chitcago has the most gun control in the nation prior to some new laws in the past year she said "but they can travel outside chitcago to get guns" Illinois also has some of the strictest gun laws, nobody can buy ammo without foid. So in the face of us having the most laws and the most crime, she says some crap about england having no guns and little gun crime??? Does this b realize that she is suggesting to me that I should be in jail?!
And shes a legal drug dealer, pharmacist working a few hours a week dealing drugs which are frequently recalled and part of class action lawsuits. I should tell her what I think about pharmacists being held responsible for every single drug that causes harm or finds its way into the wrong hands.

Thats not worked out so well so far.

Making bigger prisons just makes them more expensive.

Thats the way it is in the USA.

Bigger prisons is an ok idea, but being law abiding folks who finish school is a better one. One way tickets to Nigeria is better still.

I was sarcastic, it sux that some people do think that more laws will solve something. We have more laws than necessary, we dont ned redundancy upon redundancy. Murder is illegal, so making a law against a gun wont stop a murderer.

non-violent crimes and pot infractions can be dealt with with a bracelet. Keep them at home and let them be a burden on their family instead of the rest of the country.
The only people that should actually sit in a cell are the people that are a threat to others physically.
What we're doing aint' workin'. Same as war on drugs. We need to rethink everything from top to bottom.
