It's a shame the reply couldn't feature common sense informing the poor prisoner that he had perfectly functional furniture and fittings up until the point that he trashed them all. To be fair they should be allowed them back once they have paid for it all.
Go through the prison and identify those who have the potential to reform and lead useful lives; then take them to a place where they can begin that process. Another prison with a regime built around 15 hour days of hard work/public reparations, education and personal development would be ideal. They can even have cocoa and a slice before bed.
The remaining 70 or 80% can be driven to a deserted location and have some trees planted over them.....
oh yeh i remember it. running around in a willys jeep armed with a couple of thompsons ( and no extra ammo) fit bint in tow, and blame it all on those pesky nuclear tests they did in the area. And that awful squeeky noise thay made until you found out it was probably the hand cart that the effects crew pushed them about on.
