"Warehousing these animals is a gutless moral choice."
Coming from a CO standpoint, "Animals" is probably a milder term to use. I can take those burglars, theives, dope heads, etc... (I work in the largest Jail in Washington) but c'mon.. do you really want to let these guys out? I can't speak for anyone but me... I for one would rather put 'em down and be done with it. You're talking about individuals that throw feces, spit, murder, etc.. those that keep 'em out of society. Tell ya what.. let's trade jobs for a bit and then we'll see how you look at things.. the very worst of humanity.. I think I'd almost rather go to war again..but hell.. this as well as my prior profession (Soldier) I am proud to be in. And all for less than $20.00 an hr. of your tax dollars..
