Don't Set Me Free, GI Joe!
Iraqi prisoners are refusing to leave prison because they want to finish their studies there. About twenty-three thousand adults and juveniles are held in two jails, Camp Cropper at Baghdad International Airport and Camp Bucca at Basr. Not only are prisoners demanding to be kept behind bars until they graduate, their parents are begging the jails to let the siblings of the prisoners be locked up with them so they can go to school, too.
Of the six thousand prisoners released from the camps since last September, only 12 have been recaptured, a recidivism rate of 0.02%, 1 in 500.
