Re: “Vermont's 'Most Beautiful' Prison Has an Uncertain Future

This article proves that the Vermont Department of Corrections has little or no interest in rehabilitation and is only concerned with warehousing prisoners at the lowest possible cost.
BTW One fact that I haven't seen mentioned in the debate over Windsor's closure is that when it operated as a minimum custody facility, those who were sent there were given day for day credit towards their sentence. That means a day of "good time" was earned for each day spent without a rule infraction. So, if cost is so damned important, compare the cost of 6 months at Windsor to 12 at another prison within or outside the State.
