  •  You didn't get what I said. (0+ / 0-)

    Try taking a breath and grasp what I proposed.

    I believe people should not be able to run gangs, from prisons. I believe they should not have the capability of ordering hits on guards, fellow inmates, or anyone on the outside.

    In order to do this, they would have to be kept in prisons designed very much like super-max prisons.

    I also believe we should reduce the number of people going to jail and prison in the first place. I believe we can take the money we spend harassing, arresting, trying, and housing non violent offenders and build/remodel prisons.

    I have no problem keeping the truly bad people locked up and away. That is money well spent. I also think most people have no idea about how gangs continue to operate. No one should have an issue with making sure people are safe and that prison isn't just another opportunity to be predators in a different setting.

      About half of the AB shot-callers are there.  It's the most restrictive super-max in the continental US.  

      They still order hits.

      income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%

    •  You can never completely control people... (1+ / 0-)

      That is the mistake of most right wing conservatives.  They think there is some amount of control that is sufficient to protect them.  They believe that with enough guns, enough TSA, FBI, NSA, CIA, ATF, etc. that they will be safe.  Give more power to search and spy and listen and record and peek and frisk and monitor and eventually, all crime will be prevented.  It is impossible.

      Unless every house was like Fort Knox and every suspect of anything was put in solitary confinement with zero contact from any human being, there will be crime and they will call for more security.
