Prisons are about safety
Theodore Carl Soderberg - San Francisco
Penal institutions should be about public safety, not money.
The United Kingdom is still using an old solution to an old problem concerning its prison population. It ships prisoners overseas. One such destination is Thailand. It seems to work for the British taxpayer and politicians.
Given our nation's economic times, I can see shipping prisoners outside of the USA only as a plus. It would also serve as a deterrent for future career criminals.
