Organize the chain gangs to clean up the country

With regard to No. 6 in your article of today’s A.M. Costa Rica, one idea that immediately comes to mind is with regard to the shortage of prisons particularly when reading that “. . . prisoners hang around all day with nothing to do.” How about instituting the old fashioned chain gang to get those prisoners out to clean the streets and gutters of debris. Of course, the prisoners would have to be monitored and be identified as prisoners, but it surely would give them a workout and benefit this lovely country as well. Maybe they would even begin to have a little pride in their work after seeing that their contribution in cleaning up this country makes a difference. Hard work and manual labor never hurts
