Huge beefy criminals can't run very fast.
Don't encourage them to do cardio, or next time the cops won't be able to catch up.

They can do serious damage in a fight though, Id rather restrain a 100 pound meth head than a 250 pound body builder.

On topic:
Babel. Yes, the one with Brad Pitt.

Off topic:
There should be two kinds of prisons:
1- Labor camp
2- Hard labor camp.

Make them work. Make them produce. Free labor. Don't do the crime if you don't wanna work for free.

Not necessarily...I wasn't talking about just building roads.

There are over 1.5 million inmates in the United States alone.

Imagine things The United States could achieve with a "free" workforce of 1.5 million.

You're not helping anything buy spending tax dollars on labor. Yeah you could hire 1.5 million people to fix the roads and that would create 1.5 million new jobs, but where is that money coming from?

100 pound meth head, easy to beat in a fight. 250 pound body builder... easy to shoot?
Yeah it's not ideal.

Regarding the issue of prisons: I'm really a little bit disturbed that some of y'all think that America should become more like a Third World authoritarian state. I realize that sometimes, it seems like scumbags in this country get better treatment than they deserve for breaking the law, but trying to deprive them of ANY luxuries doesn't seem to me like it's good for either society or the guards who work at prisons.

Anyway, back OT: A while ago, I watched an episode of "M.A.N.T.I.S." (a superhero TV show from the mid-1990s that starred Carl Lumbly) called "Tango Blue", which was apparently made as propaganda to support the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban (being signed into law at the time). It promotes a whole bunch of myths about "assault weapons" (namely, that they're fully-automatic) and involves the hero sponsoring a gun buy-back program.
