Idaho ponders having prisoners sleep in shifts
With space scarce as the U.S. prison population grows, a top Idaho lawmaker is proposing that inmates share beds by sleeping in shifts, a practice sometimes used by the U.S. military.
"Why does every inmate need his or her own bed?" asked State Sen. Robert Geddes. "The military does it all the time."

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

I think it's a great idea. As far as space issues go,in Japan I have seen hotels and apartments where the rooms are little more than stacks of bunk sized boxes. Ladders included. :-) So what if prisoners have less space,they'll get used to it.
Maybe sheriff Joe Arpaio could try this out.
