Netherland Prisons being Shut Down Due to Lack Of Prisoners

Netherlands is in process for shutting down 8 prisons due to lack of prisoners, Maybe we should lend them ours!

The Country's Declining crime rates in the Netherlands mean that although the country has the capacity for 14,000 prisoners, there are only 12,000 detainees...The number is said to be decreasing by the year  not  that there are less criminals in Netherlands but they reserve the prisons for when all else fails, just last year when there was a danger in overcrowding in prisons  The Criminal Justice Alliance (CJA), which represents more than 60 organisations, called for the government to urgently limit "the unnecessary use of prison, ensuring it is reserved for serious, persistent and violent offenders for whom no alternative sanction is appropriate" And Since then, the numbers have gone down.  Because they dont put people in jail for punishment rather for rehabilitation and once they consider you cured, you're out!.
