    Torture on the one hand, gang brutality and gang rape on the other.

    God bless America.

    Dogs from the street can have all the desirable qualities that one could want from pet dogs. Most adopted stray dogs are usually humble and exceptionally faithful to their owners as if they are grateful for this kindness. -- H.M. Bhumibol Adulyadej

      You don't trade gang rape for sanity. You can have smaller groups of felons together that don't lead to gang rape or gang brutality.

      Try linking this to education. Bigger classes lead to less learning. Bigger prison groups lead to less desired socialization.Currently, our prisons lead to Lord of the Flies on steroids. It doesn't have to be this way. We should learn from other countries that have lower recidivism rates.

      If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never has and never will be. Thomas Jefferson
