Cruise = $38 per night
Jail = $84 per night

I think the article ignores a bunch of costs that would be incurred on the cruise but the point is valid.

I am all for the "island" concept of prison. We keep a radically reduced number of prisons on shore for first-time/small-time offenders. If you are deemed to be a permanent hindrance/danger to society, you go to the island. No death penalty, no reprisals. Just get the fug out. We no longer care what you do on the island; you are its problem. If you try to leave, the Coast Guard running its regular exercises will eliminate you with extreme prejudice.

Usual issues. It's probably cruel and unusual punishment under 8th amendment and violates any number of other prisoner's rights under case law: right to healthcare and mental care, right to humane facilities. And prisoners still have a right to due process.

But if they did I hope they made a reality show out of it.

All true... George Carlin had some GREAT ideas with respect to the reality show part of it

The only cruise I ever went on was on a ship with a lot of guns or marines, but I am fairly certain it cost more than 38 bucks a night. Well, at normal cost anyway.

Fwiw, they need to start putting inmates to work. Bring back the chain gangs. :)

I propose we turn Manhattan Island into a maximum security prison, and make Lee Van Cleef the warden.

38 bucks to feed you shtty 3 meals a day and hot water for 5 minutes. Sounds like a steal
