Re: Prison Farms, the South, and community gardening
Being Southern, I ask, if you are worried about killers,
molesters, rapists and the rest having inhumane working
conditions (conditions I certainly don't condone) I suggest you
do some active about it instead of sitting there typing and
insulting all Southerners.
Is it easier to type out bigoted statements than it is to
do something about it?
How about start a prison program near you that will teach
convicts how to grow using environmentally friendly techniques
and teach them a thing or two about science along the way.
Perhaps money earned from the project can go to us victims.
A victim of crime, a Southerner and a humane decent person who
walks her talk.
