Regardless, AFAIC, someone's "right to know" is addressed by their ability to subscribe to a valid news source. I'll modify that for clarity, though: they may subscribe to as many valid newspapers as they would like: USA Today, WSJ, local paper(s), papers from other towns, etc.
Lots of people lived for a very long time without television news. Inmates will be just fine without CNN.
I'm simply unwilling to allow people in a supermax to communicate with anyone, even family. Allow me to introduce you to terrorist-assistant Lynne Stweart, who should herself be rotting in a supermax at this very moment, instead of attending dinner parties in TriBeCa. People don't get thrown into a supermax for shits and giggles. These people are SO dangerous that they must be completely cut off from society. If I had my 'druthers, they'd be hauled out back of the courthouse and had a bullet put into their brain, but unfortunately I don't get to make all of the rules.
Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

Sonna doesn't understand the constitution. What one considers cruel and inhuman punishment, another might consider it a blessing. I'd be willing to bet that there are probably a couple million inmates in the world who would give their testicles to be in a US prison. But what happens is that leftist judges and leftist lawyers get together and convolute things. For example, take religion. The 1st amendment guarantees your right to worship as you see fit. Go to prison and you get special treatment. Muslims get special meals during Ramadan and get a huge feast for the Eid. We have to accommodate their needs during Ramadan which includes a separate meal times because they can't eat while the sun is up. Believe me, a vast majority of these people are as much a practicing Muslim as you all are. No other religious group gets this. Jews certainly don't get Seder meals during Passover. At my jail there is a Native American sweat lodge. Another thing with the jailhouse Muslims is that they like to play games to try to get you into trouble. I've gotten written inmate complaints because I dare interrupt their prayers during count time. Well, I wouldn't interrupt them if they didn't get right up to the door to do their prayers to the point where I can't see them. Count time is the most important time of the shift. Count comes before death and I'm not making that up. So if you're purposely hiding yourself and claiming you're doing it in the name of your religion doesn't fly with me. You know what time count is. They are static counts that never change. You can wait the 5 minutes it takes for me to walk a tier to count you. The second I walk by your door, have at it. Choose to lie down in front of the door where all I see is your ankles and feet and I'm going to kick the door until you stand(I also kick the door if you cover yourself with your blanket. I'm not going to compromise the rules because you want to be a dick). You refuse to stand and I promise you in short order you will be on your way to lockup for failure to stand count. Don't like it, don't come to jail. I'm not losing my job because some mook wants to play games.
Sonna's nemesis got it right. Arpaio provides the basic needs of his inmates. He gets sued repeatedly and wins every time. Well, except the time when the inmates sued to get television and a leftist judge agreed. Of course someone forgot to set the parameters of what type of programming there has to be so Arpaio gave them TV with only 2 working channels: The Disney Channel and The Weather Channel. If I were ever to become governor, I'd hire this guy to be the commissioner of the DOC.
The main thing is, if you don't like prison, don't do anything stupid to get into prison. Once you're here, too bad. This isn't meant to be a vacation.The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.
SonnabendGuest03-05-2014, 06:15 AMWhen someone enters a supermax, they are never to come out. It's a one-way ticket. It IS a death sentence. It's just a matter of when.
but their communications will be monitored at all times.
