Just isolate infected prisoners within the lockdown facility
With a virus that spreads as easily as this does, and spreads while people are asymptomatic or have very minor symptoms, that might not be a viable method to prevent the spread throughout a prison, to both inmates and staff. :dunno:
Do you want to build new prisons?

thats not practical

Look at how many we could have built for 2 trillion dollars.

They don't have the room. It will run rampant through a prison. Thank God I don't work there anymore.
most of the prisioners will survive and some will die

there is nothing else that can be done
Maybe that's why they are releasing some. It's an ethical issue because unless you are a convicted murderer on death row, prison can not be a death sentence.

No one is responsible for criminals being in jail except the criminals themselves

if they get sick and die thats not our fault

they can be reassigned, the infected on one side of the prison and the uninfected on the other side

No one is saying that. If they get sick they have to provide them medical attention, and as I said, unless you are on death row prison cannot be a death sentence.

Wow, so you were inconvenienced for a couple of days. Yes, that's totally a good reason to lock someone up for life at a cost of $90,000 a year.
What do you think should be the consequences for stealing or destroying someone else's property?
Unless it's his I'd bet he couldn't care less.
We should do the best we can for prisoners short of turning them lose

that would be utterly irresponsible

How many could we build for the 30 billion dollars from the NIH that they wasted or abused.........when they wouldn't spend it on research for the corona virus back in 2003.....instead they used that 30 billion dollars to study monkeys getting drunk........

Ideally, not prison.

Flogging, caning or whipping. Countries that utilize such forms of corporal punishment have very little recitivism.

NIH failed to test coronavirus drugs, studied drunk monkeys, soap operas, and tailgating instead

I wish I still had the informative button. ;)

Well, that's a far cry from spending $30 billion on studying monkeys getting drunk, but it explains the comments. Thanks!

Just saw this and it's relevant to the thread. Apparently Cook County jail in Chicago has a growing number of COVID-19 cases. They are "screening and releasing nonviolent pretrial defendants." That's not the same as releasing convicted criminals, but it's a similar sort of action to try combating the spread of the virus.
