I know it sounds stupid, but this guy who harassed people online for $20 a person is getting 30 months in prison. How does that help me out? So I propose that we send guys who do nonviolent crimes down to a farm, lets say Georgia, where they pick blueberries for 8 hours everyday (off on Sundays) for $8 an hour. $5 an hour is taken away for inmate fees and they gain $3 an hour. They make over $4,000 a year and have money when they get out. At the same time I get cheap blueberries (or raspberries, blackberries, etc.) and no taxes to pay for these guys.
