Skip to comments.PUERTO RICO: THE PERFECT PENAL COLONY

The perfect storm-more ways than one. Destroyed island. Room for 3 million people. Close local jails in the CONUS-think Rykers island. Puerto Ricans will stay home to run the system, including their troublemakers. Pay everyone the going SOUTH American wage. Think of the $$ saved. Get rid of the Prison Industrial Complex. You know it's out there. Trump the dealmaker. Laid off prison guards become cops. FBI gets downsized. Working vacations in San Juan. Vanity?
Its on the vain side.
I always thought a small remote island in the Aleutians would fit the dirtbags well. A treeless Island (no rafts) with a bear population.
I think it’s a pretty good idea.
a very lot of Puerto Ricans have apparently consented to becoming permanent vassals of tThe State so I call your plan a win.
With all due respect, they were surprised to find they were an island in the Caribbean. I mean, who knew?
You’re right. It’s vain. $80 billion(at least today) in incarceration costs. Can’t be accused of racism. Guards-spanish speakers- can work cheap. Recruit them when Cuba/ Venezuela is free. Teach the inmates a building/automobile trade. I say flush our toilet.
Nah. The weather is too nice there. Find an island off the coast of Eastern Canada where the water is always to cold to risk swimming through if they escape.
Freezing islands would not work-cruel and unusual. Caribbean has sharks to keep them in-think Devil’s island. Plus think of the inmates dark skin. Can’t handle the cold. Light skinned inmates will be ‘protected’.
I agree...let the evil criminal vermin serve their time in Frigid Land, Alaska.
Me....I would turn Puerto Rico into the “Gem & Las Vegas of the Caribbean” with grand hotels, superior, island vacation spots, along with a diversified manufacturing economy and strong military location for the USA military.
The Democrat Party has destroyed the Puerto Rico people, economy, and the business base of the island. It needs to be politically destroyed on the island, immediately.
Before ya all go looking to jump on the Puerto Rican people, I think you should take a look at the 2016 POTUS results from St. Lucie county in Florida, a hot bed of Puerto Ricans that settled there. You will be amazed at how that county voted For Donald J. Trump to become POTUS.
My game plan, would “MPRGA”, Make Puerto Rico Great Again, and work to destroy both Cuba and Venezuela in that process. Shucks we could then take over Cuba & Venezuela, expand the USA to a MEGA power in the Caribbean and South America, let the industrious, hard working Cubans & Venezuelans be all that God meant them to be...Free, with Freedom, Liberty, Equality, Opportunities, Great jobs, Great education...GREAT FUTURES!!!
Just my opinion.
PR is a beautiful place.
There’s no reason to add to its post storm turmoil...
You said “penal” . Tee Hee.
The warm waters around the island are preferred by sharks. And that island which the Navy used as a gunfire range? Vieques? Put the death row folks on that rock and fire at will. As far as the weather being too nice, just save the energy costs and forego air conditioning. It’s all good.
Putin’s got a perfectly good gulag sitting around unused and needs a profit center. I bet he’d house them cheaply and with less media backlash. Media would love paid trips to PR to write anti-american screeds, but not so much trips to Siberia.
Umm, have you seen a map of Puerto Rico lately? The waters surrounding it are not exactly the English Channel. Even near the Equator, ocean or sea water is freezing.
It is a penal colony, as its full of Puerto Ricans...
Simple. We call in Snake Pliskin.
