Intended or not, I'll take your word "community" to be the community of
prisoners and staff within a prison. I agree that it wouldn't be so
terribly difficult to arrange daily safe contact with specially trained
(and protected) staff members.
As per my conversation with Antonio, I think treating even the worst of
society in a humane manner is good not only for itself, but because it
has a positive effect on society as a whole, outside the prison walls.
