What took them so long?: The US Federal Bureau of Prisons is ending the "boot camp" style of incarceration.

Seems that the basic training mode didn't decrease recividism. No, it only made them really strong, fast and disciplined. Let's see: choice A) put them in small, cramped cells, feed them high-carb food, give them no direction or motivation, and let them kill eachother off through ritualized gang warfare or B) create elite super-soldier criminal who like to get up early in the morning and are very adept at climbing over obstacles. Hmmm, lemme think here...
