I got this idea from another prison thread I made. How should jails and prisons be? There are some jails that have a pretty laid back and relaxed environment. I don't know if computer and internet access is widespread yet but cable TV is certainly something that a lot of jails have. I always considered prison to be more for hardened criminals, vs. jail, which is where you go if you get a DUI or whatnot. I don't see much of a reason to make jail any more fun than prison though. I think both should be pretty boring. The food should be bland and uninteresting and the daily schedule should be pretty empty. I don't have a problem with recreation yards and weight rooms. Those types of things don't require much upkeep and it gives people something to do. I don't think they should have state of the art equipment but I don't see a problem with giving them something to do to pass the time. Thoughts?
