    When I say violent crime I mean really violent, not just punching s/o.  Rape, attempted murder, that level.

    As far as cost.  Not a problem.  Lots of empty space out west.  Work camp set up where they are made to work and produce s/o to offset costs.  Minimal health care, no niceties, basic food and shelter + good marksmen.

    If rich people are getting away with murder then the court system + judges need an overhaul.  That doesn't mean we let the dangerous and violent loose on society when we do nail them.

    If we let out all those low level drug dealers, drug users and the like that would be good.
