    1. Well first off, you don't mess with someone with a +25 war hammer.

    2. Also with enough dexterity requirments one can become an Escape Artist.

    OK I don't play D&D and for that second fact I had to use Google to look up D&D skills, but I still find this hilarious. Nothing is more intimidating as a D&D gang...:lol 

    BUT, I do agree that removal of joys is fundamental of punishment, so...I can understand the prison to a point.

    As far as I'm concerned, you're in jail? You shouldn't be having fun. End of line.

    Um.... The prisoner was just wondering if anyone else wanted to play D&D, and the others thought up of this?

    Whole lot of it in this thread eh? Though I'm all for the initial story. Prisoners shouldn't have fun.

    I think the same could apply to any team sport. A group of people unite to defeat their rivals...the barbarians!

    If prisoners were actually treated like prisoners, maybe crime in this nation would go down. Cable TV, board and card games, workout room, basketball, etc need to go. It's too much like a resort in there, which is why there are so many repeat offenders. They want to go back because prison life was better than the life outside.

    I can't remember where exactly, but there was on state that gave their prisoners the minimum federal allowance of benefits. They all slept outside in tents year round, only got one blanket, and had TV but it was small and stayed on PBS. Needless to say, that state had the lowest amount of repeat offenders. Those guy did NOT want to go back, so they straightened up when they got out.

    You are thinking of Sheriff Joe Arpaio's prison style in Arizona.... except that crime did not go down and changes he made had no effect on repeat offenders.

    From what I heard, the statistics for prisoners that were sent back after release were far lower in that prison than any other in the nation. I think it's something like 80% in most prisons, but only like 20% in his.

    I acknowledge this is just hearsay, but so is what you posted. Neither of us has posted proof, but at least my hearsay makes sense logically. :p

    I agree with this statement, but I also question housing hundreds of criminals in a confided space with nothing to do. Sure, it shouldn't be club med, but if giving them something to do it would likely keep em out of trouble.

    Too bad logic doesn't equal reality.
