[citation][nom]mrpijey[/nom]Pickpocket Uncle Sam, or copy some music or computer games. But don't rape or kill, you'll get only slapped on the wrist and fined for that.Aren't prisons supposed to be CORRECTIONAL facilities? How come then they can sit on their asses playing games, watching TV, have meals ordered and even earn money in prison, while the rest of us law abiding grunts have to work to the grave only to see Uncle Sam take most of it in taxes, and the rest by rampaging price raises? And they even send the bill for running that prison to us tax payers...Pheh, crime does pay apparently. Now where are those pirated games, I need to cut my living costs and get dinner served for me....[/citation]
actually you pay for federal prisons, and some state run ones. prisons with this kind of stuff are private. and they make money off the prisons, by putting them to work, and work jobs that are the equivilany of 15-20$ an hour. the state pays their basic liveing costs, which is 10-15grand. based on performance, they may get better cells and the like, and some, you can pay 350-1500 a day to get a better living arrangement, think a 200$ hotel equivilant at best. that comest to ove a million a year, if they self upgrade.
and prisions are supost to be corectional ficilities. but the ones we all think of actualy breed harder criminals than when they went in
