Civilian Inmate Labor Program
I must say having read quite a bit of said document, I find it difficult to equate what it provides for with your 'interpretation'.Given that the US prison system operates somewhat differently than most European 'correction systems' (and then some), I see nothing controversial at all in having inmates who have committed crimes being expected to defray a part of the cost of housing and feeding them by contributing their labour, whether by way of the ubiquitous 'chain gang' or something less obviously punitive such as working in a laundry or factory environment; it's a pity some of our own prison population couldn't be used in this way, too. Nor do I see anything wrong with expecting those performing 'commuity service' to be dressed in some kind of visible 'uniform' which clearly identifies them as atoning for crimes committed.
I don;t disagree with your point about he US prison system, I think the point here is ratehr more about the use of military in carrying such things out.
Civilian Inmate Labor ProgramCould be the whole of The UK ere long.
Talking of army documents!Wikileaks has cracked the encryption to a key document relating to the war in Afghanistan
the point here is ratehr more about the use of military in carrying such things out.Fair enough, but from what I can gather the Army get work done which would otherwise remain undone, because they don't have the funding to commission it themselves. From what I can see, shorn of the dreadful bureaucratise in which it is written, it's a 'win win' situation.
Dizzy: Thanks for this. I will be back when I have more time to spare. Do the inmates have the vote?
