    Absolutely if you want some sort of civilized society.

    What would be the alternative? I think prisons could use some reforming, but I don't see the possibility of doing away with them.

    Prisons do need some revising. I agree that prisoners should have some kind of work program so they also have to pay in. They get a bed, 3 meals a day, clothes, and do not have to do anything to earn that. Tax payers are getting their throats cut paying for people to have a free ride.
    Doesnt matter if they did  commit a crime, they should have to help pay for their expenses. There should be something done different. The prisons are now getting over crowded, which means more money to expand.

    I think any country needs one, but what we have in the USA is lousy.

    We imprison a far higher percentage of people than any other democratic country, often for non-violent crimes, wasting untold lives (and our tax dollars).

    Fewer prisons, in which fewer prisoners did meanful work that would both pay back their debt to society and rehabilitate them, would make this country a better place.
