Federal Prison Savings

I suggest we charge federal inmates for incident report processing. For example if a citizen speeds in their car they receive a ticket and get a fine, so inmates should be held to the same standard and everytime they receive an infraction they should be charged a fine. Most if not all inmates receive money from family members to buy commissary (food and snacks) and if inmates had to pay fines they would be less likely to commit routine infractions. The money collected could help pay for prison repais etc.
