What about the Sarlaac pit on Tatooine?

And then there's the problem of cases being overturned and wrongful incarceration.  I wouldn't want to be on a ship that picks up an inmate when you've got several hundreds of criminal minds loose on a planet.  The second you land, they'll sabotage your ship...

No. The Moon will be overpopulated with prisoners. Then what planet is next? Mercury? Venus? Where does it end?
As long as it means they end their criminal activities on Earth, who cares where they go? Its the fuel and building costs which concern me.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Lets just send them to this place i have been told about my whole life where bad people go its called hell!Oh wait we have to let them commit all of these atrocities first?Oh well......

"If it is not advantageous,do not move.If objectives can not be attained,do not employ the army.Unless endangered do not engage in warfare.The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger.The general can not engage in battle because of personal frustration.When it is advantageous,move;when not advantageous,stop.Anger can revert to happiness,annoyance can revert to joy,but a vanquished state cannot be revived,the dead cannot be brought back to life."

I'm digging the 'into space' idea. I just think blasting them out there 'zod' style would be much cooler. :tsu:

Too many prisoners you say?

Well how about we get onto changing the laws. There are a few that shouldn't be there that would make a massive difference to prison populations.

So it's going to be a lunar version of Strangeways.
But you can't just lead them to fend for themselves.
However you don't need wardens unless the convicts hotwire a passing UFO.
But these prisoners have got friends and relatives who won't be happy when their visiting rights have been stopped.
They are human after all and deserve the privelidges we take for granted.
Besides not all prisoners serve life sentences so how are we going to pick them off the moon?
Not only that but the hardened lags might decide to get involved in the act of leaving.
Same applies when they have flights full of supplies because you can't have them starving.
That's regardless of how heinous they have been to get to this point.
It's also not very cost effective so they are better left off where they are.
It could though have more potential if space travel was part and parcel.
You do have a point. I didn't think of that. It probably wouldn't be a very good idea. The criminals i'm talking about are the worst of the worst, child killers, serial killers, cannibals, necrophiles, serial pedophiles ( Who have attacked children and younger ) Basically all the filth of the universe.
But yes the points you make are totally right

How about an isolated deserted island.

Drop them off with a fishing rod, knife and some rope.

See ya!
