We cannot continue to just WAREHOUSE human beings for the sake of a better bottom-line for the prison industry. If this Sheriff lets workers who WANT to work, out and about among the citizens? Good for him! THE VAST MAJORTIY OF PRISONERS ARE NON-VIOLENT, and working keeps them busy, keeps them from hurting and killing each other, keeps their mind on something else besides themselves and their problems. This is a GREAT idea! Let them do it! They need to work, because it's GOOD for them to work. And it shows them, they can be trusted, trusted to do a good job, trusted to act right, and with increased trust, comes increased confidence. I'm glad this Sheriff is thinking in such a progressive manner. Wish ALL law enforcement would do the same.......
