    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    I imagine those small things might balance it out.
    You want to get rid of libraries? Rehabilitation should be the point of any prison program. I want these people, when they get out, to be able to be functioning members of society. If he wants to educate himself, by all means!

    And yet these are often the first prison facilities to go. In California they had to shut down a vocational school to make room for more prisoners. Sad, sad how the warehousing era has ruined the system.

    we need more alternates to prison.

    Public humiliation to some degree for most crimes, more fitting punishments (i.e. Don't send potheads to jail when we have to release violent offenders early), and more vocational training. If you're in prison, getting a GED isn't going to make that prison record look much more appealing. However, if we offer specific training and do a work-release program, then you'll most likely see a lower rate of recidivism coupled with a smaller stigma placed on those convicts.

    If you're talking about the black community, then yes, it can. If you mean that they can only do it with the help of Libbo do-gooders, then no, that will enver happen.

    Did I ever say I was talking about the black community exclusively, or "they can only do it with the help of libbo do-gooders"?

    Totally. Teach them trades. Give them actual skills and prepare them for actual work they'd be able to do. I wouldn't even object if they have to pay the system back later on.

    You know how long that ****'s been tried and it hasn't worked? God, gimme a break!

    How 'bout, instead, we teach some work ethic? Some self pride and determination? Practice some tough love and tell them that there will be no more mailbox money?

    Some convicts are just people who did stupid **** and need an education to give them a viable skill besides stealing or running drugs...

    If we can work this in, all the better. But again, if they aren't going to want vocational training, they certainly won't want work ethic, self pride, or determination rammed down their throats

    Though I think conscripting criminals is a workable idea. A penal legion...mmmmmmmmmm Just like the Last Chancers...

    Apdst, you might like this:

    Penal Legions are...forces consisting entirely of convicted criminals, debtors, liberals and other social transgressors.1
    Penal Legion - Lexicanum

    Ok, geek out over.
