And, as we build, at a feverish pace, more and more prisons, what do we do when our warehouses for bad men and women have more beds than we have criminals?
Find more criminals.
Ah, American ingenuity:
Virginia to house Wyoming inmates
The Associated Press
Richmond (AP) — Wyoming inmates are due to be transferred within weeks to two Virginia prisons in the southwest corner of the state.
The transfer, part of a contract that could pay Virginia $18.5 million, could bring up to 300 Wyoming prisoners to the state over the next two years.
The Wyoming inmates will be held at the high-security Wallens Ridge State Prison in Wise County and the state's new medium-security Pocahontas State Correctional Center in Tazewell County. (link)
Ah, yes. The more lawless America becomes, the more prosperity Southwest Virginia realizes.
There's something sinful about our attitudes toward crime down here.
