Highlights: It would be GREAT, if ALL the lawbreakers came out of hiding in our neighborhoods and moved to Hurricane-City(TM). Even GREATER: A dangerous felon on the lam, gets a free pass to Hurricane-City(TM), rather than lurking in our neighborhoods, putting us all in danger.

START OF ARTICLE:
Hurricane-City(TM) can be the calm, safe EYE of the legal storm faced by “criminals” on the lam. There could be several Hurricane-Cities(TM) in several states. Hurricane-City(TM) is a major concept of “Reform Our Criminal Justice System!” (That article, containing our concepts, will be posted soon.)
Captured “criminals” can ask to be sent to Hurricane-City(TM). A future federal law could require law enforcement to deliver anyone with an arrest warrant there. Once inside, anyone with a outstanding arrest warrant, who tried to leave town, could be taken into custody and extradited to the state that issued the warrant.
“Criminals” can turn themselves in to law enforcement and asked to be sent to Hurricane-City(TM).
A state that issued arrest warrants could be required to pay minimum living expenses for their “criminals” who live in Hurricane-City(TM). It may cost a state $20,000 per year, which is better than $40,000 per year to incarcerate them.
A state could pay more than the minimum, for reasons of their own.
Once the “sentence period” is up, the state could dismiss the warrants and stop payments. The “criminals” can become free citizens, or they can be out on parole. They have “served” their time.
A “resident” can be monitored by their state to make sure that state’s citizens are no longer in danger. Indeed, the citizens of the ENTIRE nation are no longer in danger from a dangerous felon on the lam.
The states will also save on the cost of trials, which for some felons can run over a Million dollars! The expense of pursuit is also saved.
A code of conduct can be establish. Violators could be subjected to extradition.
The uncooperative and deadly “criminals” can be separated or extradited.
Rehabilitation programs can include Our 5-Blocks-of-Wellness(TM)> . The 5-Blocks-of-Wellness(TM) are Financial, Physical, Emotional, Social, & Spiritual.
EACH STATE will still be in control of their “criminals.” A state judge can set the “sentence,” that is the time a state is willing to pay expenses, by determining how long to keep the arrest warrant active. Minor “criminals” may have “sentences,” which is a stay in Hurricane-City(TM), of a few years or even months. Others could be sentenced to life or any time in between. EACH STATE decides.
An incarcerated prisoner can ask to be sent to Hurricane-City(TM) and transfer must be granted according to a future federal law, if space is available.
“Criminals” with their own money can live quite well. Others can work to earn money or learn an employable skill, and/or learn social skills in Hurricane-City(TM) to improve their life style and influence their state to grant them a shorter “sentence” or early parole.
Thrill seekers, those people who commit crimes for the thrill, the excitement of it, can be given jobs or activities that require guts that most of us don’t have: fire fighters, smoke jumpers, under water divers, sky divers, under cover cops even, on and on and on. Some of the best spies in history were x-criminals.
The Freeloaders, those people who commit crimes just to get a free ride, will sooner or later be detected by their state and dealt with.
Fences, guards, and monitoring devises may not be needed. An “escapee” will be missed within hours and be on the run for his freedom, if not his life. And worse of all, an “escapee” will NOT be granted a second chance at Hurricane-City(TM). If you escape, its goodbye forever.
A free person without any wants or warrants will be able to enter and leave Hurricane-City(TM) freely, although monitored.
It would be GREAT, if ALL the lawbreakers came out of hiding in our neighborhoods and moved to Hurricane-City(TM). Even GRATER: A dangerous felon on the lam, gets a free pass to Hurricane-City(TM), rather than lurking in our neighborhoods, putting us all in danger.
