Peace to the Brothers on Rikers Isle!

I recently read a staggering statistic: "Taxpayers pay about $72,000 per inmate per year at Rikers Island."  What????  I don't have some fancy solution to offer here, but I know this situation has to be highly amendable...


  1. Isn't that just the way it works? Killing someone on death row costs much more than that. (somehow)

  2. Yeah, I just refuse to believe it HAS TO work that way. I'm sure it's due to massive inefficiency on many levels...
