Pile them in Lansing, El Dorado and Hutchinson like cordwood.

The responsibility for prison overcrowding lie solely at the feet of the prisoners who committed the crimes that put them there. If they don't like living on top of 15 other guys then maybe they shoudl have thought twice about committing a crime.
