democratic rule in big cities....they don’t deal with criminals. Now if a bit of actual real justice got dished out as deterrents, you might somewhere but the criminals know the system is gamed and they can get away with most things, the criminals get locked up and they know prison is a cakewalk these days as well as them having more rights than victims.

Prisons in general have become like a form of institutionalization of the welfare system, with built-in
entitlements never to be reduced (except for Joe Arpaio)
or threatened with extinction. It’s evolved disgracefully into a hothouse for continued criminality and a perfect meet and greet arena for future criminality. It is also a lucrative taxpayer funded enterprise and industry for those involved in new prisons and the big bucks involved in the maintainence of existing prisons. It is also another area, like everything else is this unruly land of ours, where we will NEVER get anything like an honest discussion of what is wrong, what went wrong, and how disgraceful has been our avoidance of coming to terms with the real social, moral and economic costs of maintaining so many people in these ‘warehouses’ , where the REAL and TRUE objectives should be both the redemption of souls and the moral and practical rebuilding of shattered and socially dangerous identities.
The question “why is it so large?” is the wrong focus, and that’s a question that has led to the practical solution of
automatic release of still-unreconstructed people into a society where the easiest thing for them to do for
“re-entry” is to return to a life of crime.

Yes they do. They also get the best health care money can buy. Where in the Constitution, does it authorize this?
