The increase to 8200 men and women lias been appalling ia the last two decades. The typical prisoner is an adult developed from an under-piivlledged child, who has become lazy, an habitual liar, an idler who thinks he is too smart to woik. "The state spends a great deal of money on unimpoitant things while the homeless, churchless and school- less chlldien are being converted into criminals. And don't think we are not paying for their keep. We pay |275 a year for each person locked up ia Illinois while for the entire life of a child in public education we spend |255 a year."
