No need to mention the security potential of it should some of the populace get out of hand... solitary confinement anyone ?
But seriously, a prison is already set up properly to house a large-ish population of people. Beds, toilets, sinks, large scale industrial kitchen,
eating area, rec areas, etc.
Why not utilize a building that's already got the proper facilities and just needs a little elbow grease to clean it up ? It would save a huge chunk
of money that can otherwise be used to help these people get back on their feet, rebuild homes, etc.
Housing people in a superdome failed miserably for many reasons, at least in a prison people can have some privacy from one another.
It makes perfect sense to me.
