Sheriffs’ delight

While local officials cash in, convicts lose out

                         Louisiana's incarceration rate is almost six times Maine's and seven times China's.

Prisoners have not fared well. One of the cruellest ironies of Louisiana's prison system is that the state jails—which tend to house people serving lengthy sentences—do much more to prepare inmates for life outside. But a man serving a ten-year stretch is apt to cool his heels in a local jail, with nothing offered in the way of rehabilitation. He will get out with $10, a bus ticket, and not much else. The chances are that he will resume his life of crime. And somewhere in Louisiana, a sheriff will smile.
