Overwhelmed

February 9, 2013
Williamsport Sun-Gazette

I am overwhelmed by the prison crowding issue. So many are in prison for things like being "deadbeat" dads. We have complete control over their bank accounts and employment checks. These people are only responsible for a child 18 years of their lives, yet we can draw on every dollar they earn for the rest of their lives. If we only get $20 a month from them, it will save us the $55 a day it costs for them to be housed out-of-county, get fired from their jobs and become a further burden to the rest of us. Instead, we have to fund the county's ego contest with these individuals, forgoing any and all common sense. What do they care? That's how they earn our money..
