‘There’s a way to avoid it’

“It costs us an awful lot to take care of those who violate us out in the community,” Sen. Denton Darrington, the Senate judiciary chairman, told the joint budget committee this morning. “… Those who commit horrible crimes, it’s very expensive to take care of. And they don’t like being in prison, their families don’t like it, and they shouldn’t like it. There’s a way to avoid it. … There’s a way to avoid the bad food, the lack of visitation. … And that is: Do not do the crime and be put in there in the first place. I wish everybody in the state could hear me say that. Do not do it and you won’t be faced with those things – do it and you will be faced with those things.”
