    Smile crack rocks =?

    Context:

    Ms. Marg Simpson was overworked and underappreciated. One day she violated the law slightly and was arrested.

    And a police official said,"She'll be cracking rocks by the end of the week".

    Question:

    crack rocks =?

    Thanks!


    PS:
    I have looked up Urban Dictionary, but its explanation does't adapt itself to the context.

    Urban Dictionary: crack rocks

    Re: crack rocks =?

    In many countries, prisoners were/are employed in breaking up rocks into small pieces for use in roadbuilding. The policeman is suggesting she is likely to go to prison.
