How about some state sponsored hangings?

Like any prison system. They will do like they have always done. Let the less violent ones out early.

Our prison system is a private, for profit industry. Most county jail systems for longer term housing (30 days to 1 year) are the same. Those that have been in know that if you have to stay in jail more than 30 days you get shipped out of the main jail to some sort of camp, farm, ranch, or other facility. These are private, for profit instituions, which is why they are not staffed by County Sherrifs (like jails), but by Dep't of Corrections people instead. Our legal system endorses it because of the huge revenue base and job creation factor. The common goal is to lock up as many people as possible, however the need to keep them in is not as important.

Just like in hospitals, their money is made in admissions. Once you're admitted the setup costs (and profits) are astronomical. After that the profit declines, thus the desire to get you out as soon as possible and allow for more admissions.

I know this because I have quite a bit of exposure to both businesses.

Such headlines are pushed by the prison lobby. They are an influential lobbying group because of what I stated above, and the media does not bother to question this or point it out.

Prison rarely rehabilitates people. Education and jobs do more to get someone on the right track. I know because of my rather colorful and sordid background. Jail did nothing for me. Education and income did.
