FILE- In this May 17, 2011 file photo, the East River flows past New York City’s Rikers Island correctional facility. The operating of Rikers Island consumes a large chunk of the New York City jail system’s budget. It costs nearly as much to jail a city inmate for a year as it does to pay for four years tuition at a private college. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig, File)
