There are many prisons in need of repairs, why not use inmates with these traits to do repairs. They don’t have anything else but eat, sleep, and think. If they are there for rehabilitation, what better than helping the system. I mean, this is their home for whatever time they will serve. Some prisons do not have vocational programs for all inmates. I also don’t agree that only main line should get any kind of vocational or rehabilitation programs. They all should be treated equal according to classifation in custody level.

I recently toured a prison outside of Columbus Ohio and the inmates do all the inside repairs, maintenance, landscaping, cooking, cleaning, etc.
They also have an excellent program set up for them to learn job skills and career programs.
The warden told us that their recidivism rate has dropped to almost zero because of all the programs making the inmates ready for employment when they are released.
He said that they get 50 calls a day from other states on how to set up their programs for their inmates.
What these people needed was job/career skills.
What they needed was a chance.
I am so happy they have these skills, that means they will not be robbing a store, or killing someone for their wallet.
They will be tax-paying productive citizens finally.

Some places the prisoners do have to work very hard.
Talk to your local polititions about such things.
