*What or which action would you take?

:2wave: I believe if we bring back the “Chain Gang System” well not need the use for capital punishment. By bring back the “Hard Labor” into the prison system we can make the prison work for the community. Now yaw might say what if a person runs, then the officer will take a killing blow to the running inmate after a warning shot has been shot. Now if this is done neither the state nor the government has kill this inmate by capital punishment but the inmate brought it a pound himself (he made the decision to run not the officer that shot him). Now, what I might by the prisoner work for there food that each prisoner has a sect plot of land were he grow so food/crops and either eat the food or sale some to the local committee, while giving back to the committee the prison in return receives some money to spend and some knowledge for when they get out. Also each prisoner can do something for the committee and in return he can get a 1 or 2 remove. Also a person(s) can build a house for “Habit for Humanity” and while learning a trade for when he gets out. I strongly believe in reopening “Angel Island and Ellis Island” and maybe one or two more. Be doing this we will be able to control diseases, terrorist and much more. And may even make continental fights cheaper because there would be two or three places were you could come in at. I believe put up a wall along the Mexican Boarder would be a nice thing because it would stop this entire illegal alien for starting crime over here from there and also help with the drug problem. :doh Canada board is just an extreme thing if they don’t screens there foreign people to make sure they don’t have diseases nor or terrorist. Deport all illegal aliens is just to extreme for me and to costly just get the one out of the jail and deport them back to there mother land.

So what do you thing? :confused:

I thought this thread was going to be about how to reform the JAIL system. Instead I just see a list of ideas for how to cut down on crime.

To answer the question you asked, we need to define the problem. In my opinion, the biggest problem is the fact that prisons breed more crime. Inmates make friends with other criminals and are more likely to continue their life of crime when they get out. The frequency of prison rapes also means that most prisoners will have mental problems when they leave.

We can reform the prison system by isolating prisoners who commit acts of violence against one another, and increasing the use of alternative punishments for certain nonviolent crimes.

That's sad but it's better than having them hurt someone else. They wouldn't be isolated if they aren't violent while they're in prison.

Here's what we do:
  • Eliminate mandatory sentencing for drug charges.
  • Eliminate the 3-strikes law.
  • Legalize drugs.
  • Do not send people to prison for victimless crimes.
  • Stop demonizing criminals (because we are all doing time).
  • Be concious of the hatred within our own hearts.

To sum it up, the criminalization of drugs makes hard-core users commit more crime to pay for their habits, deters some people from becoming casual users in the first place, prevents a few casual users from falling into the ranks of the hard-core users, and uses the legal system to squash the lives of casual users. (casual users being defined as job-holding, productive members of society who sporadically indulge socially)

Legalizing drugs would: reduce crimes committed by hard-core users, allow a few casual users to partake more often, increase the general acceptance of casual use, and prevent the callous use of the criminal justice system to tear apart the lives of productive members of society who indulge in a "victimless crime."

Pros:
  • crime would go down
  • tax revenue would go up
  • billions saved on Plan Columbia-type policies
  • productive members of society no longer smacked around for harmlessly indulging
Cons:
  • increased casual use
  • more casual users would become hard-core users

Hardly what I'd call "all hell breaking out."

Ok, I take and shown and talk to these people about my ideas to 10 Republicans, 4 Decorates, 2 Liberals and 4 Independents. They all loved ever single word! So I write up a fake bill for my ideas and shown them again, they said it sounds like dictatorship or Communism thoughts. We is this as a whole there though like that but as a single they thought as good….politics is messed up
