These people leave prison with a wide variety of STD's. Many of those diseases dont go away once they get out of jail...

They do work within the prisons and usually make something like 10 cents an hour.

The real problem is .... how are you going to enforce use?

A bettter idea is to send the HIV positive cons to a separate unit and not release them.
