    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."

    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.
