3. I saw a tv show on this model years ago, so it's been around a while.

And since nobody's pissing all over themselves for it to be changed, it must work.

As long as we have a for-profit prison system in this country, we'll never see anything like what Sweden has. Instead, we'll have prisoners like in the deep south, who were threatened with losing all their "good behavior" time if they didn't go and "clean" the Gulf without any protective gear and therefore with the risk of permanent injury and disability or even death, all for a quarter a fucking hour.
