Penial Colonies?

Postby Time_Traveller on Thu Dec 23, 2010 11:48 am

I think we will have Penial Colonies for those criminals with a knack for escaping from even the most secure prison facilities, and those individuals the government wants to be rid of permanently, a life-sentence to a penal colony is usually the most common solution. Penal colonies are typically Class 3 Colony worlds, requiring decades of terraforming work. A prisoner sentenced to such a place faces a bleak life of mining planetary resources or maintaining the terraforming machinery, under the watchful eyes of a small team of wardens. Revolt is discouraged by withholding of supplies maybe make the first one on New Zealand in 2105?

Why have a criminal do a robot's job or someone who can earn a decent living? Besides, it costs money to keep criminals around.

NEW ZEALAND? Heck no, that place has too good of a climate and 4 million people. Try the Antarctic Peninsula. That way if the prisoners escape it would make it really hard for them to survive long.

One possibility is that prisons in the future will be virtual. Your mind will be uploaded to a virtual prison. For the most serious offenders, this could be a kind of personal hell that is tailored depending on the crime.

May as well use Britain, the rest of the world already dumps it's undesirables on us anyway.
