    An excellent opportunity to outsource our prisons.

    This is what the prison system looks like in a country that doesn't have insane drug laws and isn't arresting people for looking at a cop the wrong way.
    We even rented a prison out to the Belgians because they did not have enough jail cells to house their prisoners. 650 Belgian prisoners are housed at the Tilburg jail under Belgian rules, with a Belgian director of the jail but with Dutch staff to guard them.

    to some extend yes, but we also are much more densely populated, have problems with criminals from other countries who can enter and leave our country due to the European Union Schengen zone.

    As said, we do if for the Belgians and if we were situated next to the US we would be happy to if we could use our prison methods because I am not sure the US prison methods would be acceptable here (large prison dorms, cells with more than 2 or 3 to a cell).

    In addition, in some places, peeing in a public place gets one labelled a sex offender and burglary is considered a violent felony.

    While I would normally agree with you, some liberal judge would require that we buy them first-class tickets with free pillows and heated towels. Maybe we should let Mexico send their prisoners there and then us put ours in the Mexican prisons instead.

    And a cultural difference towards prisons. IIRC America locks up more criminals than any other industralized nation.
