Let's see:

Spanish Lakes subdivision = 2 miles away from prison. On the same road as the prison.

South Baton Rouge (from Bluebonnet/Burbank intersection) = 6.5 miles away. Not on same road and distance is not street miles but rather aerial.

Geismar/Dutchtown (from the Bluff Rd/Hwy 74 intersection) = 4.6 miles and distance is not street miles but rather aerial.

Anything else you want me to disprove?

Geismar/Dutchtown is thriving, and Hwy 74 runs through it, which is where Hunts is. Nicholson (30) is also seeing those new subdivisions popping up. 4 miles isn't long by the way..

(Prisoners don't escape running down roads in jumpsuits, they use the "aerial" route)

I wouldn't worry about the prison. Unlike with Angola, there are not that many places to hide around Hunt. Prisoners there can't steal off into the Tunica Hills the way they can at Angola. They could try hiding in the swamps, but they wouldn't last five minutes in such a harsh environment. In the unlikely event that there was an escape, the innmate would be picked up in no time flat. Plus, I know if I was an escaped innmate, a crowded subdivision is the last place I'd want to go.

Oh, is that what I said? Could have sworn I never mentioned anything like that.

In any case, having the prison a few miles down the road hasn't stopped Dutchtown from becoming one of the fastest growing communites in the metro area.

Dutchtown is 5-6 miles away from the prison. It's not the same as Spanish Lakes which is 2 miles down the same road.

It's not a big deal. We almost built a house in the neighborhood across the street.

I doubt the original poster or most civilized people for that matter want to live across from a prison.
