that's unfortunate that you can't reach your butt anymore.... maybe you should switch your diet to low fat ham and swiss with a diet pepsi. what would happen if you had to chase a prisoner down the hall? if you're too fat to reach your butt, then you're too fat to run... i suggest you jog also, i hear there's a great jogging path on the west side of norwegian st. you might even see us squirrels spying on the kernal and pooping on his secret squirrel van...squirrels don't wipe their butts, it just slides out and off......

i have tried jogging but it's tough to jog and eat bacon sandwiches at the same time. besides we don't chase prisoners anymore, we just use the taser gun.

i shoot em and then the rookies cart them away. sometimes we get bored in the prison and use the taser on other guards. no one has got me yet. i got the big squirrels on my side.

as far as my butt goes, i just get my wife or a prisoner to help out. as you can guess my wife is skinny because i eat everything.....including her.

HAHAHA your all under educated... They don't get free TV or cable there loved ones on the outside have to buy it and send it in. Cable they take off there books a month. Oh and the internet its not free eiter its .05 a minute. So there so called luxuries are not. They do get a steel bed, toilet, and sink. Three meals and medical has been cut. Anything else we the families pay for. And yes they did there crimes but don't get it twisted we pay there way not you. If you all are so worried about what you pay on prison systems you better look into sentencing, and your governerment. Its crazy.. All the wasted money. And inmates do work mine works fulltime mon-Friday for .22 an hour.

Honestly prisoners DO get luxuries that they shouldn't get. And yes it is the taxpayer that pays the bill. In 2001 studies showed that on average, the amount of money spent on each prisoner a year was $22,650. Liferswife, I highly doubt that you send in any $22,650. This money goes to give prisoners access to internet, cable TV, even porn if the price is right. not to mention the expensive exercise equipment and books and education programs. And to top it all off yet another luxury is special religious meals. f your a Jew in prison you can request a different meal if the meal of the day contains pork because of your religion. I'm not hating on Jews btw that was just an easy example. it goes for all religions. The fact of the matter is that prison is supposed to be a PUNISHMENT for doing wrong. If you break the la, you are supposed to be stripped of all of these privileges to teach you a lesson so that you won't do it again. I do agree with Nicole that they should let up on prisoners who have served their time and released. Its not fair for them to still be punished after they have served their term. I honestly think that prisoners should be put to work so they will still be productive to society. Imagine if all of the prisoners used manual labor to produce electricity. Imagine the impact that would have on the American economy. Imagine, instead of each person costing $22,650 a year, they make money for the government. at least $2,000 a year. It makes sense. Some might find it to be inhumane, but it really isn't as long as you make sure that the prisoners are kept in good health. They may not be happy, but prison isn't supposed to be a happy place.

Where do you think they are spending $400 a week? The numbers are there. take it or leave it as you please but they are still there. And think, this is back in 2001. That amount has grown since then over 10 years.

i don't know why the prison can't spend a little bit and get a hot tub and swimming pool. spanking the monkey and eating beans and rice all day ain't fun after a while.
