Unwanted inmates

I'm currently listening to NPR, discussing where to hold Guantanamo inmates, once Guantanamo closes.

The levels of NIMBY are stunning.

Yep. I've noticed something, though: many of the people I hear voicing the most concern are ones who were most in favor of Guantanamo in the first place. Leads me to suspect that they don't actually care, they're just looking for an excuse to justify keeping it operating as it has been.

"Butbutbutbut!! If you-- if you put them in a federal prison in our state, they'll convert all the prisoners into suicide bombers!!!"

Sounds like a computer strategy game.
"Placing Guantanamo Bay inmates into any US federal prison results in the existing inmate population to turn into suicide bombers at the rate of 50 inmates per turn. Actual bomb-making material is generated after 10 turns and suicide bomber units will try to detonate themselves to breach prison walls and faciliate the escape of all remaining inmates."
And with my luck, I would wind up QA-ing the damn thing. :)

You forgot:

"The production rate of bomb-making materials may be offset by increasing the entertainment rates for the prison population. This uncivilization advance is not available after the advent of the 'Grand Unified Digital Broadcast Media' Degradation unless the 'Public Criminal Digital Financing' civic improvement has been built."

NIMBY you say?

What we need to do is follow this story and once they find a place for these people, also build our nuclear power plants there! :D
