Going to jail should be a bad thing right? It's punishment for a crime.
Apparently, some people feel it's more comfortable there than out. This is just the latest of these I've seen.

Jails should all be hard labor camps that produce more than they cost. Simple logic I would think. If this guy wants to go to a prison that produces something then ok, but taxpayers shouldn't be paying for him to be comfortable. If he's too old to be productive in the jail, then the other inmates better be the ones providing for him to be comfortable.
