I think rehabilitation is better than a person returning to prison as many do. The revolving door scenario certainly cost more in the long run than rehab if it works. This could be a good program but I think the inmates who chose to participate should be screened and pre approved for military service by the military. Once they have been pre approved then they need to sign up with the military and if they complete and graduate from the program then they are released to the military. If they fail to complete their hitch in the military they return to jail for 6 months or the remainder of their sentence. which ever is greater. The down side of this program as it's currently being run is if any can participate we turning lean mean criminals back onto the street instead of into soldiers.

The Crimes Leader 'failed' to mention.... HOW MUCH this wonderful program costs the tax payers.

Part of their military wages should go back to "this program", to help fund and it. (as a courteous debt of gratitude) for turning their lives around, which is yet to be proven.

IF in fact it does ??????

GRADUATING the program doesn't ensure success..... and these "premature accolades" are pure BS 8(
