So, prison these days consists of three square meals a day, cable television, ability to obtain college degrees, recess and now beauty pageants? Where's the deterrent? Our justice system has gone mad!

I wonder what they did for the talent portion. Perhaps the "skill" that got them locked up? Miss Inmate #44372 hotwired a car in less that 2 minutes, and Miss Inmate #11546 stabbed a dummy 18 times in the heart... blindfolded.

Lovelit is pretty close to being correct; however, things are worse now for offenders than in the past. We have taken away the cable television and most prisons no longer offer college classes. If an offender chooses to take a college class, they are no longer able to get a State/Federal grant to pay the tuition. (George Bush stopped that when he was Governor of Texas) Their families must pay for the classes; therefore, very few offenders can afford to pay the tuition. I do concur that our justice system isn't in great shape. Back several years ago the correctional staff had the attitude, ability and fortitude to make offenders do as directed. If you try that in current times, the officer will end up in a federal prison and the offender will sue him for everything he/she is worth. Most of this can be attributed to liberal judges, such as William Wayne Justice and his ilk.
