Like all Oklahomans Rob thinks we should be tough on crime, especially when it comes to sex crimes and crimes against children. But most importantly we need to modify our prison system so that criminals desire to rehabilitate not only for the sake of rehabilitation but to avoid returning to prison. But to embed in prisoners the fear of returning to prison we need to make our prison system one which a person avoids at all costs. Rob believes we should move our prison system to a self sustaining entity with 12 hour work days including Saturday. This work is hard labor not replacing laborers on our roads or elsewhere, but hard labor used to do all those things for our prisons that we are currently outsourcing. Having taught college courses in the federal prison system Rob is for teaching knowledge and skills to our prisoners, but not until they earn it through years of tough, hard labor. Prison should not be a picnic, or a chance to enter a weigh lifting program, but should be a place filled with sweat and tears, and memories of long, hard days of grueling work.
