"Timmy" has a point, you know.
Prisons give 3 square meals,television, warm beds,and no taxes. Prison isn't punishment. Its paradise.
I don't think that it would be good for a murderer to be out on the streets again but prisons are really good at keeping their criminals and usually if you have commited murder than you are in prison for your entire life.
LOL, Timmy please, losing your freedom and being locked up with people who have committed crimes is far from paradise

Nearly every one of us has thought over an idea to the point where it looks impossible to reject, and then we get discouraged. That's not the place to become discouraged.
