Why inmates should be trained to go to war
At this point we are still in war with Iraq since 2001. We have lost 6,616 innocent soldiers that have fought for our country as of October. Many of them do love fighting for their country and they don’t want to let down their pride. Many of them were married, with children, and all left families with a lifetime pain.

Every year that an inmate spends in prison costs $22,000. An individual sentenced to five years for a $300 theft costs the public more than $100,000. The cost of a life term averages $1.5 million.
      First we obviously won’t send them without them knowing why. We have to get them mentally prepared first. Many people...
