Do we really need a judicial complex? I say no, but that’s my choice. Maybe we should use the money for something else, and here is some food for thought:
Let’s put seniors in jail and the criminals in nursing homes.
This way the seniors would:
• have access to showers, hobbies and walks;
• receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheelchairs, etc.;
• receive money instead of paying it out;
• have constant video monitoring, so they would be helped instantly if they fell or needed any type of assistance;
• be provided bedding, which would be washed twice a week; also all clothing would be ironed and returned to them;
• be checked every 20 minutes by a guard, who would bring their meals and snacks to their cell;
• have family visits in a suite built for that purpose;
• have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counseling, pool and education;
• be provided secure rooms for all with an exercise outdoor yard and gardens;
• be allowed a personal computer, TV, radio and daily phone calls;
• have a board of directors to hear complaints; the guards would have a strict code of conduct.
The criminals would get:
• cold food and be left all alone and unsupervised;
• lights off at 8 p.m. and showers once a week;
• a tiny room in which to live and pay $4,500 per month with no hope of ever getting out.
Wake up, Clovis! Don’t you think we pay enough taxes between federal, state, county and city?
