I'm writing about Mark Muecke's story: "Alternatives sought to 
relieve prison overcrowding" (Feb. 19).

I have a simple, common-sense and easy solution to your prison 
overcrowding situation. Reserve your prison space for only those who 
intentionally harm others against their will.

Not gardeners. Not people who use, produce or sell to willing buyers 
"unapproved" products.

A free country's government cannot protect its adult citizens from 
themselves. A free country's government has no right attempting to do so.
