I seek the Person who understands the importance of prison to business
activity, to research and technology, and to social interaction.
Focus on Restitution not Punishment.
a) To the Victim - judgements and fines
b) To the Convict - rebuild your career and your life
c) To the Community - teach US! how to deal with your crime
Approach: assume we have convicted an innocent man (to help adjust OUR attitude) (he may have only seen bad examples of behavior)
Provide video training for self-respect, work skills, life skills. The Courses are
always available to help --- when the Convict changes his mind.
Conclusion: Blessed as we are with Intellect and Free Will, misbehavior is reversible.
Let's offer each other the encouragement and the opportunity.
TECHNOLOGY for efficiency and control. (Is it reasonable to spend no more on a Truant or Felon than we do for a law-abiding Student? Here's how.)

3. Cell phone antennae to monitor work/school release.
4. Instant Eye Camera for personal drug analysis.
