Chuck, Sounds good, unfortunately It costs taxpayers too much to keep em incarcerated.

Yes but if we started doing that we could sit back and watch the number of people committing crimes like this drop dramatically. This would eventually open up prison bed spaces as few would want to rot in jail knowing they couldn't pay back the victims.

Three meals a day, free electricity, a bed, heat, air conditioning, etc. prison is not what it is suppose to be! It's the victims who suffer and continue to do so. I agree punishment needs to fit the crime, but we won't see it in our life time, at least not in this state. Let's send them out of state, I would prefer Texas, oh we did that already when we sent some to Virginia and you know how that turned out. I believe we payed for transportation for families to visit then.

What ever happened to chain gangs and hard labor? People are not afraid to go to jail anymore and that's the problem
