It costs less to send a person on a cruise than to put them in jail

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

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.

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.

    • Ross for me. Davis is good, but the same way Ross' previous injuries give people pause, so should Davis' competition. You can only play who's on your schedule, but Davis played against inferior talent and, for the most part, got shutdown against good schools (Wisconsin, OSU). He did dominate the other schools so I'm not saying he won't be a good pro. I just think this T.O. talk and saying he's going to beast out could be premature.  Davis last game he was shut down by Wisconsin and then, due to injury, hasn't run at the combine or his pro day. For me, that's a little risky too at #8.  I wouldn't take Ross at 8, but what we need based off of our roster is a player of Ross' abilities and strengths, IMO. I wouldn't be mad with Davis, but I prefer Ross and would not want either at #8.
    • In kindergarten we had weekly job theme where you could play pretend and be a worker or a customer. One week they had a salon type deal going on. My parents never instilled any sort of gender identity within me, so I went and got my hair did. I didn't know I was a boy and wasn't supposed to do that. The girls didn't think it was weird either.. Never turned gay or tranny.     My hair looked fuging luxurious too, btw.
