Many people with a bent toward the thought that education or rehabilitation is not the purpose of prison are not considering the fact these people will eventually get out with no hope. Felons can't vote. Employers will not hire you. So people go into survival mode. I don't have the answers but the answer is not to impact generations by taken men away from family and continuing the cycle. The emphasis in prisons should be to modify minds so people don't think there is only the solution they learned. "As a man thinks so is he".
