This is awesome!

This is great news! Great news for the country, great news for crime prevention. Those who would say “we don’t send criminals to prison to go to school” do not realize that all studies show that education dramatically reduces recidivism. 96% of all prisoners will be released. Let’s keep them out!Less recidivism means fewer crime victims. As surely as I am sitting here this is a crime prevention measure.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Simple, common sense, crime prevention. It has nothing to do with “being soft on crime”; it is about being “smart on crime”.
