Important Clue to Possible Third Sniper

Though funny, it's an ironic reminder that charging one with a crime and convicting them of said crime are two different things...

Most common comment on the third sniper? "We didn't know he knew any black people!" :o

So, just how did they meet? Sources indicate Malvo and Muhammad were planning to shoot politicians on the golf courses of the world, where, oddly enough, the third sniper has been searching for the real murderers for several years now!!! :P

Defense's argument?

More prisons, more inmates, and more staff all equal higher taxes for U.S. taxpayers. I don't think people want to pay any more taxes than they already do. There's no other way of getting funds for an increased prison system without funding it from taxpayer's money. Everyone wants lower unemployment, but are people willing to pay more taxes for it?

Just my $0.02 on the matter. :wink:

You'd think so, but Newsweek devoted an entire issue to this issue back a few years ago, and found exactly the opposite to be true.

While giving kids something to do after school (and keeping them out of trouble) is cheaper then incarcerating them after some incident, more was being done to build facilities to incarcerate offenders.

With taxpayer support...

And yes, the fact that jails add more jobs than an after-school facility was a major mention...

You'd think that even if people don't care about these offenders, that they'd at least care about their wallet...

But the numbers didn't support that line of thinking...

One only has to read about the prison system in Texas (reported in Newsweek back in May '00) under Bush to know taxpayer money is never a factor in this. Much cheaper to run DNA tests and free non-guilty convicts that to leave them incarcerated for a crime they didn't commit...

But people feel safer knowing that someone (and, yes, quite frankly, ANYONE) has been convicted of a crime...

No one wants to ask why taxpayers aren't willing to stop crime before it happens though... :(
