The Netherlands is contemplating replacing incarceration with home detention:
Under the bill, whether criminals remain in the vicinity of their homes will be monitored by an electronic ankle or wrist-band. Those convicted will however be able to leave their homes for two hours a day. This will only be allowed according to a schedule agreed beforehand. The two hours can be used for doing shopping, visiting family, sports activities or a visit to a mosque or other religious event.
But hey, it's not like a large percentage of Dutch criminals or Muslim, or anything.
