A recent article about carcerite, “prison syndrome,” is especially interesting in that it gives insight into the prison system in Italy. While bedeviled with overcrowding, just like the US, Italy has some “inspired” prison rehabilitation programs that’re worth knowing about.
However, the main reason I’m posting today’s blog is to make us aware of the gamut of thinking about “prison rehab.” What do you think of the comments below in response to the “prison syndrome” article?

There are so many incarcerated that just made bad choices as a kid. I love the idea of this program and would love to see people implementing it especially here in the US. And of course, you wouldn’t enroll a serial killer in this type of program. But there are so many that don’t even belong in jail, their crimes are often just due to the color of their skin ultimately. They would be perfect candidates for something of this sort. And it seems to me they would have an easier time finding work once they were released, having referrals in hand and years of experience.

That said, their are some criminals that probably can’t be rehabilitated, or the cost of rehabilitation for society is greater then the worth.
