Scandal! Outrage! How Dare They Punish…

Prisoners who break rules

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – South Carolina’s prisons director on Tuesday defended a policy of punishing inmates who perform sex acts by dressing them in pink, despite a lawsuit claiming the rule subjects prisoners to ridicule.
State Corrections Department John Ozmint said the two-year-old punishment deters inmates and protects female officers. His agency has asked a federal judge to dismiss the lawsuit.
“We don’t believe the United States Constitution protects an inmate’s right to publicly gratify himself,” Ozmint said. “We’re hopeful federal courts won’t look into our Constitution and create such a right.”

I’m with ya’, Mr.Ozmint.

    I think it’s the method of punishment that they had a problem with. Were I in prison, I wouldn’t want to wear a pink jumpsuit. It kind of screams “rape me”.

    I guess that scene in Silence of the Lambs, where a prisoner flicks something at Foster, is a regular thing.

    Well nothing that can’t be cured with a good beatdown.

    Geez, do they prefer to get tuned up by four guards and then hucked into solitary for a week? Idiots.
