Do you think that the jail is overcrowded? I look at it this way, if you dont want to go to jail, dont commit crimes.

Jail's are overcrowed nationwide. Think of the money spent on these facilities. They need to weed out some of these people with petty crimes (marijuna possesstion) and figure out a way to put those in jail to work doing something constructive. Lets at least get something for all the money we spent housing inmates.

I think that guy in Arizona with his Tent City Jail and pink undershorts has the right idea......

If I could, I would definitely vote for him, if he wants to take this route.

I was watching a story on prisons today and of course they showed the one in Maricopa County, AZ. I didn't realize the inside of those tents with the flaps up was so hot. They had a thermometer in it and it was 137! That right there alone is enough to keep me straight, I hate the heat.. Another interesting fact was it costs 30 cents per day to feed each prisoner. They don't serve coffee, eat bologna (the prisoners claimed it was green) sandwiches, and the fruit comes from trees that the prisoners pick. Freaking brilliant guy and they seriously need to clone about 1000 more of him..
