I know lame headline. But this story from North Carolina offers an interesting way to rehabilitate criminals. Give them a wrench. Basically the state penal system is using the Saving Cars Behind Bars program to mirror similar ideas in other states like Nevada, Georgia and Maine. The prisoners have the opportunity to learn a valuable skill and work on real projects while incarcerated. One such task involved repainting a fleet of police cars. If there were ever irony, having criminals painting police cars would have to be it.
