France is leading the way once again. This time they are showing us how to handle prisoners by sending them on long supervised bike rides. As the article’s title notes, what could possibly go wrong?
Although as I’m thinking about it, I’m wondering if maybe this is a model for handling all those Guantanamo Bay detainees that we can’t see to figure out what to do with. Since every state seems scared to death to have these guys reside within their borders, perhaps we could just establish a mobile prison for them. We’ll put all the terrorist and terrorist wannabees on bikes and make them pedal around the nation. That way they won’t reside within any one state’s borders. And in theory, they’ll be too tired at the end of the day to perpetrate any evil. It’s a small price to pay for not having them be a bad influence on the other inmates at our Super Max prisons.
