Alternatives to Long Term Incarceration
Much money is spent housing and taking care of felony offenders in prison. Many states are moving away from the death penalty for homicide. This usually means expensive long term or life time incarceration as well.
This poll explores your responses to other options for felony offenders who will spend a great many years in prison at tax payer expense. The options presented do not assume "correction", but rather a more productive and economical means of punishing such convicted offenders in a manner to gain benefit regarding community needs as well as insure community safety, while in some cases offering the felon a strong incentive to go clean once they have paid the penalty for their crime.
This poll is about adult felons, both female and male. It does not in any way address the issue of juvenile crime and alternatives to incarceration for criminal behavior in minors.
Please be sincere, as this poll is one small part of my doctoral studies.
