I think what Comandante might be getting at is this: What's the point of prison? Is it simply a storage locker for society's refuse, or are we still clinging on to the idea of rehabilitation for some of these people? If the latter is true, perhaps conditions should be more conducive toward achieving that goal rather than being a place to sit and rot.

Prisons are BIG business and more and more convicts are becoming corporate slave/cheap labor. Manufacturing and service jobs are being cut so that prisoners now take your airline reservations and make your clothes.

There are presently 80,000 inmates in the US employed in commercial activity, some earning as little as 21 cents an hour.

The US government program Federal Prison Industries (FPI) currently employs 21,000 inmates, an increase of 14 percent in the last two years alone. FPI inmates make a wide variety of products

In addition, during the last 20 years more than 30 states have passed laws permitting the use of convict labor by commercial enterprises. These programs now exist in 36 states.

The Life Penalty

This guy should be dead

KILLER'S HOPES TORMENT VICTIM'S FAMILY

By MAUREEN FAULKNER

PrintEmailDigg ItRedditPermalinkStory Bottom

December 21, 2007 -- TWENTY-SIX years and counting: That's how long my family, my friends and I have been tormented by Mumia Abu-Jamal - the man who murdered my husband, Police Officer Danny Faulkner, by shooting him in the back as he lay wounded and helpless on the pavement.

He then put a gun to Danny's forehead and squeezed off a final shot.

The same rare ammo that killed my husband was found in Abu-Jamal's gun, which was registered in his name and recovered by police at his side, just 70 seconds after the fatal shot was fired.

Twenty-six years and counting: That's how long I've had to listen to the lies and distortions of those who find the facts and trial testimony irrelevant. Everything from stories of a phantom killer whom none of the five eyewitnesses saw, to a man who said he spoke to my husband after he was shot even though he died instantly, to a supposed hit man hired by the Mafia to kill my husband.

Everything and anything to cloud the waters, stall the legal process and garner misguided support for a guilty killer.

Mumia scum should have been slowly executed a long time ago.

Unfortunately, and typical for some liberals, they pick up a story like this and champion a cop killer. It's the usually Hollywood liberals, as well as simple minded people who are used by various anarchist groups to broadcast how this killer was "railroaded" by the racist justice system.

I would post on Mumia's web page with simple questions about facts of the case and they would simply delete them.

He should be executed NOW.

Its called slave labor, these people are inmates.

Inmates who killed, raped and decided to choose a life of crime. Go ahead and throw out the f'in socio-economic crap and how it's the taxpayer's fault for not paying out enough cash to make sure these arsewhipe criminals had enough meds (between smoking their a crap pipe or dropping a needle in their arm) to keep them sedated!

"Slave labor", F^CK THAT! These bastards should be cleaning every public toilet in Trenton as a service to the state, the taxpayer and most of all the family of those effected by his or her crimes!

Manta, go live in your utopian society were the socialists all live and play happily together... Canada! In this country, you are given a great opportunity to make something out of yourself rich or poor and if you kill or rape, your game is and should be over!

Enough of this I hate corporation's and prisons are big money... BIG MONEY TO THE PRIVATE SECTOR, NOT THE COMMERCIAL SECTOR! Taxpayers pay while the criminals play and this liberal f'in state is worse than CA!

Without the death penalty, Mumia would have been locked up, quietly suffering his dwindling days, one by one; instead of becoming the cause celebre that he has. With 26 years of appeals, probably more than one public defender has retired, working on this case his entire career.

I support the Death penalty... if you are going to use it... NJ has proven they wil lnever use it even though people have actually been senteced to death. The cost of housing the inmates on death row for 20 years, which I beleove at least 2 inmates have been, plus the legal cost to fight all the appeals, would probably house 20 inmates in the regualr pop for 20 years.

Either use it like Texas or just get rid of it!!!

Thanks for the heads up Don, but I think maybe LouScams could use it more, it got to be better than his current living conditions in his mothers basement.
