A prison, penitentiary, or correctional facility is a place in which individuals are physically confined or interned and usually deprived of a range of personal freedoms. Prisons are conventionally institutions, which form part of the criminal justice system of a country, such that imprisonment or incarceration is a legal penalty that may be imposed by the state for the commission of a crime.
Prisons are not for rehabiltation. That is what liberals would like to think they are for. The only rehab being done is making those quit alcohol and drugs cold turkey. By a percentage, almost no one comes out a productive citizen. Yes, a few people go on to get degrees in prisions. There are exceptions to every rule. Degrees we pay for by the way. Prisioners only participate in the programs to get time knocked off or mandated by the court, not to better themselves. So what you have are a bunch of people getting out of jail quicker and it did not better them in any way what so ever.
