  • The Island

    So I conjured up this idea of this island in my head today and asked a few close friends and family members about what they thought if it was put into effect.

    The island would go as proposed: if you have committed a heinous or any other type of serious crime you can opt out of going to prison and be shipped to the Island. This island has nothing but trees and no source of food besides the ocean. The criminals are allowed to do whatever pleases them and there is no law whatsoever. The Island would be guarded by either the US Navy/Coast Guard or some type of LE agency that would patrol the waters and prevent escape.

    A lot of people opposed the idea and said that it would be unethical to have people treated like animals because they would be able to kill, rape, etc without being prosecuted. I thought maybe it would be too leniant because the criminals could basically become friends and live in a little "paradise", but I figured they would run out of food soon enough.

    I know its a rambling thought but what do you think...

    I already live on an island patroled by the Coast Guard and the local Police Patrol.

          I think it's a great idea - except I would mine the perimeter waters, and wish them well - no patrol necessary.

          I would also supply them with a ton of hand grenades, handguns, shotguns, bazookas and claymores. I would toss in compound bows and arrows, knives and RPGs. And finally, a dozen chickens, cows and seeds for crops.

          Send all American prisoners there and leav them. Seems fair enough.

            Why waste that amount of money to send them to the island, when a 45acp round only costs 50 cents or so?

            MUCH more cost effective......and the recidivism rate is right around zero.....

                      No, no, no...

                      Make the island a real life survivor, and make it pay-per-view. Use the money to fund PD's.

                      When a person fails a test or gets voted "off," they get fed to the sharks. In the alternative, they could be forced to live in Jersey.

                          Hey, I resemble that remark. Seriously though you are partly correct. Your island was used first until some damned colonials in the Americas decided to have a tea party because they didn't want to accept convicts or pay taxes any more and broke away from the Mother Country to make start their own country and develop their own form of the English language.

                          Here begins a condensed history lesson. At that time, the country of Australia did not exist, convicts were later sent to the colony of New South Wales, then later to the colonies of Van Diemens Land (later Tasmania), Norfolk Island and so on.

                          Australia came into existence as a nation in 1901 when the colonies of New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and Western Australia federated to form the Commonwealth of Australia and those colonies then became states. Later the territories of the Australian Capital Territory, which also administered Australian territories, and the Northerrn Territory came into existence

                          As a side note, Australia is one of the very few nations to have a constant stable system of government and that has been a result of Australia not experiencing any form internal revolution, civil war, or warlike conflict. With the exception of the Japanese conducting raids on our country during WW2, all conflicts in which Australia has been involved have been overseas beginning with the Boer War until now with our soldiers in Iraq, Afghanistan and other UN military missions. Prior to Federation each individual colony provided troops to foriegn wars such as the Moari Wars in New Zealand, the Sudan, etc.

                          Isn't Haiti of interest to the US? If so, why not grant US citizenship to the natives, relocate them to mainland US and send your crims there!
                          If at first you don't succeed, remove all evidence of your attempt.
