"The one square mile island offers its 115 "residents" cross-country skiing, tennis and horse-riding, but before the inmates can slope off to practice their serve or head to the beach for a swim, there is work to do on the farm."


I read this last night .It sounds insane,but ya know what?We have our "club feds"here,with just as many perks.Of coarse you wont see many gang bangers there ,but hey nothing but the finest for our rich , white collar thieves.

Eglin
is the original "Club Fed," nicknamed as such back in the 1980s when prisoners were allowed to wear their own clothes and even go home to have dinner with their families. Those fast and loose days are long gone, but the nickname has stuck. Inmates maintain the golf course at nearby Eglin Air Force Base, but make no mistake--they never get the chance to hit a few themselves. Disgraced shoe designer Steve Madden is serving his 41-month sentence here.
Location: Fort Walton Beach, Fla.
Opened: 1962
Capacity: 800
Population: 792
Amenities: Open dormitories hold 50 men who sleep in two-man cubicles. Softball, basketball, soccer, flag football, universal weight machine, free weights.
Vocational training offered in diesel and small-engine mechanics; dental assistant apprenticeships.
Prisoner perks: Eglin has an active music department that sponsors a number of inmate bands and also has a stash of instruments that prisoners can check out. Also of note is the camp's strong religious studies program that even goes so far as to offer Native American practitioners a small hide tent that can be used as a sweat lodge.


Allenwood
Allenwood is mentioned often by the media, probably because so many convicts from the New York City area are sent there. And like Eglin, inmates used to be permitted privileges like having food from the outside sent in. But after the public became outraged by these cushy conditions, the camp was overhauled and is now considerably more austere.
Location: Montgomery, Pa.
Opened: 1952
Capacity: 567
Population: 584
Amenities: Dorms house up to 80 men in two-man cubicles. Softball, basketball, soccer, flag football, universal weight machine, free weights, pool and pingpong tables.
Vocational training offered in horticulture. One program is 150 hours, another is 500 hours. Graduates of both receive certificates of completion.
Prisoner perks: Its musical program not only provides instruments but also offers inmate-led instruction. Allenwood is also known for having a particularly diverse inmate population--which, according to experts, makes it a little easier for white-collar convicts to fit in.

Hell, maybe I should launder some money or something and get into there, I wouldn't mind education on engines for free.
We need to deal with criminals this way:
Build an island. Build huge wall around island. Line the outside of the wall with land mines. Infest surrounding water with sharks. Throw inmates on island. Give 10 inmates knives. Come back a year later, remove bodies, and get a fresh batch of scum to fertilize the soil.

this is the most rediculous thing i have ever heard. if some one does a crime they should be punished for it ie: isolation, beatings, awful living conditions. people should not be allowed to live a five star life after doing a crime.

The US should get hold of a couple of isolated (out of shipping lanes) tropical islands. Dump lifers w/o parole on one, and illegal immigrants on the other. Let 'em grow their own food and build their own housing. Tropical island means almost no maintenance. Medical care....:shrug

Shovels, hoes and rakes for gardening. If they want to kill each other with the tools, so be it. They're supposed to die in prison anyway.

You mean like Australia.

You have to watch out for that technique. Many criminals are actually pretty ingenious. Next thing you know they'll form their own nation, build a navy, ally with another leading nation, and you'll be wondering what the hell happened to your "Escape from New York" scenario. :toothless :twak

Yah! Tough luck with the Aussies. Damn island was too big. Too many resources, too many opportunities, too many prisoners. But it still took a couple hundred years......:histerica

Not if you use "said" island for nuclear testing every now and then.:histerica
