Mindfulness Training In Jail May Lower Anti-Social Behavior
I’m going to use this link on my upcoming Kickstarter campaign to Kickstart a Prison. The idea is to build a prison for the most hardened criminals and shower them with kindness. If they get in trouble, instead of going to solitary, they go to the “Room of Hugs”, or the “Tickle Room”. And instead of making license plates, I’m thinking toys. And we must do away with those scary nicknames & clothes. Lastly we pint all the rooms pink and fill them with balloons.
Think I’m crazy? Well the current system isn’t working so well is it. FACT: The United States has the highest documented incarceration rate in the world. 743 per population of 100,000.
