A clever judge found an intelligent and unique way to offer inmates a chance for freedom earlier than they were expecting by applying the “re-socialization” method.  The alternative energy program lights a boardwalk and benefits inmates, while becoming the focal point of a movement to improve Brazil’s troubled prison system. Now, four bikes aregoing from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day, charging batteries to power 10 lamps.Inmates cycle for30 to 45 minutes,rest and cycle again. The nine or 10 people in the program each spend about three hours a day generating electricity.  It’s interesting, wonder how it exports.
