NYC inmate almost as costly as Ivy League tuition

RikersThe opening sentence says it all. ”  New York is indeed an expensive place, but experts say that alone doesn’t explain a recent report that found the city’s annual cost per inmate was $167,731 last year — nearly as much as it costs to pay for four years of tuition at an Ivy League university.”

The big question is who makes the money. I will argue that a huge chunk of the money goes to indirectly to politicians and union funds with spin off going to the businesses that feed off the situation. They would be the lawyers, court systems, police, bail bondsman and etc. It takes a huge bureaucracy of thousands of administrators from the court systems, transportation facilities and those that work in law officers, Rikers court systems and police. These bottom feeders make more money not doing their jobs than doing them correctly.

However, there is another group of bottom feeders that totally escape notice and that is schools do not teach and social workers that do not do their jobs as well. They are the ones that turn their back on situations that demand attention. Yes, in the end in comes down to parents that done care who fail to take care of their responsibilities as well.

    sure would be nice if the world lived up to your expectations… wouldn’t it?
    remember something from our dharma :
    ” equanimity” accepting things as they are.. without judgment, without dialogue, without commentary, without wanting to change it…?
    only if a person is seeking peaceful abiding would it apply, I’m guessing?
    So when you change the way you look at things,
    the things you look at change.
