Letter: Try a different approach to criminal justice

A new use for outsourcing?

We have more criminals in jails per capita than any other major country, yet we have a revolving door policy that allows many habitual criminals and psychos to go free time after time. These people have shown no appreciation of their home country, let them try somewhere else.

I am sure a request for bids from foreign countries would locate one that would be happy to lodge these people for us far cheaper than we pay here. Once they have served their time, they become citizens of that country and can make themselves useful there. We certainly won’t pay to get them back.

Naturally the lifers and death row group could not be part of this. For those, we could get a South Korean contractor to parachute them into North Korea with nothing but a Koran, an Uzi and lots of ammunition. This would still be much cheaper than the present system.

Stupidity is failure to learn from your mistakes; it is past time to try something new.
