Correcting Corrections

Why spend hundreds of millions on prisons? Here is the answer. Modular, cheap and spartan.

They don't need toilets in their cells- a 10 litre pail does just fine- it could even have a lid!

Showers and toilet modules are also available, although I see no problem in outdoor facilities.

Ring the whole damned facility in four layers of barbed wire and you have a facility built in days rather than years.

Never mind the landscaping- the crims have plenty of time on their hands for barrowing gravel for paths and laying lawns- on what land isn't used for growing cabbages and potatoes.

Beautiful...I'm with you on this set up, although i think lime would better for paths it is caustic, a bastard to barrow and has the additional benefit on sunny days of reflecting brilliant white light back into our eyes.
I also think some minefields wouldn't go amiss, oh yeah and some rabid rottweilers.

True, lime makes better paths- I have not long finished spreading 8 cubic metres of it with barrow 7 shovel.

Of course it would be supplied in boulder form, requiring breaking down with hammers...

Absolutely, big boulders and little hammers make for hard labour
