How would you like your kid to ride a prison bus to school? Can you imagine anyone thinks this is a good thing? I don't care if 75% of all inmates are high school dropouts. What percentage of violent criminals are high school dropouts? Because those are the people I'm scared of.
Does the level of criminal activity actually decrease with an increase in education, or do people get better at hiding their crimes with more education/ access to CSI episodes? Or do they just have money for a better attorney, thus not having to become an inmate at all?
Seems like a bullying form of coercion, painting a bus like that and implying that your little Greggie will get 20 to life if you let him stay home and play WarCraft or sleep in this morning.
By the way, there are now prison reviews online and you can compare your fave places to stay with the experiences of others. Excerpt from a five star review of the Alameda County Santa Rita Jail:
"First off, you don't even need a ride here. They pick you up from
anywhere in the county. Sometimes they even get you out of bed and
bring you and its all free of charge.
"Upon arrival you will be
relieves of your belt, your shoe laces or any other thing you can kill
yourself with. but don't worry, you can kill yourself with all that
stuff when you get out. You will get it all back."
