    more people had seen this discussion.

    (By the way, most prisons are not in the state's purview: they're privately owned.  That's a huge part of the problem.)

    You're right.  It is harder than rocket science.

    Yeah -- not asking for much at all.  ;)

    Seems an insurmountable issue, now we get right down to it.  Will keep thinking on it.  Feel free to kosmail me any time with ideas.  I'll do the same.

      the private companies to run the prisons... the companies do not OWN the prison. at least, not yet. and the gods forbid!

      and this is exactly what i mean: we have to see where we can exert power and regain control.

      it is the same with police. somehow, we've lost our bearings.

      glad to have connected with you!
