Fools or tools?

I read the Sept. 23 article in The Spokesman-Review on aerospace training for Airway Heights Correctional Center inmates. It seems that if you are a bad person, committing crimes against law-abiding citizens, you get rewarded. If you are sick, go to jail and get free dental, medical and, now, retrained. We pay for their incarceration and all of the other benefits that they get over and over again. When will we learn?

I just paid to send my daughter to an aerospace training class. How can I get a refund? Or should we as a society just keep coddling the irresponsible people and give them everything that we have to pay for in the legal world? It costs $2,000 each for training. Are we just fools or tools for the criminal world?
