@peachacid:  I mean it’s cool and all but it really simplifies a complex issue. Glad someone is trying to help with education/ skill training though. Working to minimize the disparity between the poor and the wealthy over there is the best idea I’ve heard yet.

 

Edit: And to answer your question, you should check out Connie Rice’s (Condoleeza Rice’s cousin) book “Power Concedes Nothing.” She draws a parallel between our prison system and militant groups in the middle east, highlighting the general distrust for police/authority as a main advantage for these criminal groups.

@peachacid:  I think it is slightly different in that many of them were taken and forced into being in the Taliban. Very different from here where kids choose to be in gangs (or at least feel like they have the choice). But most good programs in the US do focus on education and vocational training.

@peachacid:  That’s because most prisoners arent apart of a rehabilitation (education/vocation) program. When they get the services they need (and support once they are out), the recidivism rate is much lower

@peachacid:  They are more expensive, but in the long run are much, much cheaper. But politicians only get ‘credit’ for being ‘tough on crime’. So it’s better for them to take the lock um up and throw away the key perspective.
