If you'd READ the article, you'd know he supports it redstate. The obvious intent is to lock them up and throw away the key. Why don't we just shut this facility down, move them to a maximum security prison, and throw away that key? It would be a LOT cheaper. We'll also need to revise the sentencing to life in prison with no parole. At least we'd be honest about it.

Once again, multiple Dayton antagonists prove their unwillingness (or inability) to read two simple paragraphs before dispensing their ill-informed diatribe. How does that crow taste?
