"Every day I get guys who've never had a job," said Bynum."----Oh ,so he thinks that it not normal for someone who had never had a job before to get a factory job? Like that never happens in the real world? Please. This whole thing is a sham and not only that the people that go to there prisons have longer stays and get fewer early releases. They don't want to lose their "employees" who make the wage of a person in a factory in China and probably a good portion of them are there for possession of Marijuana - you know that "war" where we spend $42 billion every year on arresting 750,000 Americans for something that has been proven countless times to be less harmful to society and the human body than alcohol. Apparently "Tricky Dick" Nixon did figure out a way to get hippies into the business of war. Start a "war on drugs", arrest them for smoking pot and then force them to sew military uniforms. Congratulations on victimizing the American people. Everyone of these prisons should be shut down. Let the pot heads out and all you'll be left with are violent criminals that should be in jail.
