Every day, millions of dollars of American tax dollars are spent to feed and care for prisoners, most of which are non violent. If we put criminals in jail for a robbery, the cost of taking care of the criminal for several months could greatly outweigh the cost of the items stolen. I suggest we put these non violent criminals to work through community service in the mediocre jibs most working class Americans would rather not have. (e.g. picking up trash, landscaping highways, tollbooth attendant, etc.)

Well I just found out that if we put a non violent criminal in jail we re wasting our time... do you agree? I honestly don't believe that.

The time part is irrelevant. It wastes the time of no one. They would still have to be tried and sentenced just not a jail sentence. I believe it wastes our money and theoretically bey extension, our time.
