With the economy going the way it is....why doesn't Utah build a bigger better prison and then in turn take prisoners from other states or areas to help pay for it??

  1. You have no idea what it costs to run a prison. I can't imagine making a profit in that business, at least not if you're doing it right. It's tough to find qualified people willing to work in those conditions for so little, and the cost of housing inmates is enormous; food, clothing, health care, safety issues, education, counseling, training. They must all be watched at all times, or somebody get's hurt. Officers have to wade in and break up fights, talk people out of distructive behavior, encourage good behavior, set a good example. It takes a special person to do this for a living, and they get so little appreciation.
