I'm not sure why prisoners are not put to work so that prisons could become self-sustaining. Is it crueler to warehouse people, or crueler to give them something to do?

I agree. Also, if prisoners work, there's more chance of them leading useful lives when they get outside.
In the UK many prisoners do work, but I don't know what proportion, and I don't think they earn their keep.
