    Re: How much does your state spend on Prisons?

    Well, I am sure the dollar per prisoner is higher up here, though it is only relative. But, what I can't understand is why we have prisoners who have murdered - walking out in minimum security prisons. Whats up with that? We have had two I believe in the last 2 weeks, so it goes to show how much they spend here. I don't know myself, but if your in for murder, should you not be in the "Big House"? where ever the hell that is, who knows?

    In 2007, 2,991 people were behind bars in New Hampshire, representing a 6.6% increase drop over the previous year.
    - New Hampshire spent $92 million in fiscal year 2007 on corrections.
    - For every dollar spent on higher education, New Hampshire spent 73 cents on corrections.


    I think they are all in jail for littering...........or jaywalking........or paddling a canoe backwards...............this may or may not make me a bit nervous depending on if my lawnmower starts this year.

    Now that I think about it ...........I believe more is spent on criminals per person than I make each year.............I see something wrong here. wait

    92 million divided by 2,991 .............wait




    It will come to me................












    Hey! WTH!!!!!!

    WOW
    AZ spends 895 million
    37,800 representing 5.3 % increase from 2007AZ also accepts prisoners from other states -
    State of Hawaii doesn't have the space to build a prison - Hawaii has thousands in AZ prisons..
    AZ is exploding - will be the next LA


    Amazing how much some states have dropped from last year

    DROPPED! WOO HOO!

    I wonder, though, if it could be that tuna we bought from Walmart who go it from China?

    Either way. .. . who cares? We dropped!

    C'mon, how much can rope cost?

    I can cut the budget in most states by 90%.

    All criminals convicted of a violent crime, get hanged by the neck till dead.

    A man had to answer for the wicked that he done
    Take all the rope in texas
    Find a tall oak tree, round up all of them bad boys
    Hang them high in the street for all the people to see
