    Oh boy ... well, I'd say under a regime such as this, the US I mean ... perhaps. But only in so far as prisons are a purported crime deterrent, were as they aren't, but rather a means to an ends or merely a system of figure pointing and accountability. One way or the other, jails are not efficient.

    Very true, but the government has the resposibility to remove criminals from a position where they can harm the rest of it's citizens. How they do that is up to them. Perhaps if they would actually execute the ones who are still committing crimes from prison like the mob bosses and drug czars we would see a drop in crimes like that and then we wouldn't need so many prisons.

    We could send prisoners up to the moon and have it serve as a huge prison world!

    ok but seriously, I think we need prisons, it may not keep all the crime in and the worst people in there, but at least that's just a few more people we don't have to worry about.

    You gotta punish the people who don't do nice things, which is why we needs prisons. If we got no punishment, then it'll all be chaos right?

    Yeah i'd say its more of a punishment for the actions that people do, but the system does need a lot of work

    Of course they're needed. There are some really f*cked people who need a cage. It's just general safety for the public. No one like serial killers. . .. except... me . . .

    Hmm... good points. The jails are needed, but the system could improve. Like anything in this world, there is always room for improvement.

    To progress this discution though(about are jails needed) think of this.
    What would happen if jails suddenly dissapeared. Would there be a better way of handling the criminal population?
