Time, January 26, 2007 – Are Prisons Driving Prisoners Mad?

Really. The question should be, “do we care if prisoners go mad?” Once again this goodie-two-shoes political and social correctness aspired to by Time ignores the real problem – keeping society safe. 

With recidivism rates as high as they are (see Recidivism of Prisoners Released in 1994) we should be considering ways not to release prisoners, mad or not, especially sex offenders. Perhaps we could establish an island paradise for them all and just provide a one-way ticket.
