    And an industrial woodchipper would take care of that problem nicely….

    After all, the vast majority of people in jail are far too stupid to get a GED let alone a college degree… Unless we sent all of them to law school! But, we don’t need more useless lawyers now do we?

    It’s a question of what the society’s priorities actually are.

    History provides a lesson on this issue. In the late eighteenth century, English law imposed capitol punishment upon even minor crimes such as petty theft. Crime rates actually went up. It wasn’t until reforms resulted in improved the standard of living that the crime rates declined. Wantonly hanging “criminals”, who’s only crime was often being poor, was ultimately a failed and destructive experiment.

    I didn’t say we’d off the poor, just the stupid. That would improve the standard of living simply because the stupid wouldn’t be a drag on the economy.

    You know that the private prison industry has gotten more severe laws passed to get more “customers” for their services? What, no outrage?
