lol, well u know me.
I'm always stirring up
I had an idea I wanted to share.
Some of you may remember
the movie "Escape from New York"
with Kurt Russell many yrs ago.
That environment was a lil harsh.
But what I was thinking was something
along those lines.
An island way out in the middle of the ocean.
On that island are communities all populated
by prisoners. Each community would be run
similar to our community now. There would be
supermarket, post office, retail mall, hospital and each
prisoner got his own small FEMA trailer. They
would go to work each day and report to their
trailers at night. They would be confined to the
island with no option to leave. A very heavy police
force would enforce a martial law type environment.
Other people NOT incarcerated would be allowed
to live and work there if they so chose to do so,
however those people would know ahead of time
what to expect and do so of their own free will.
They would just be isolated from society as
a whole. It would give a sense of normalcy to
their lives giving them the tools to rehabilitate
and keep them from harming the avg citizen.
Basically a prison island. Think Alcatraz w/out
cells but on the size scale of Delaware. Of course
all inmates would have to be chipped or wear
an ankle bracelet to be located should the
need arise. Visitors to the island would come
in by boat or helicopter to a secured green
zone and get to visit with their family members
just like they do now in the island's main
administration building or the Capital Bldg.
I'll leave the details to the folks that know
bout these things
just a thought
and when their sentence is up, they get to leave
the island and it is not much different than just
taking a boat ride back home. There's not a
lot of re-adjustment to do other than a different
bed without an ankle bracelet.
