Strike Three, You’re Out

Prisoners across America are planning a hunger strike and work stoppage for three weeks to bring attention to prison conditions. Apparently, the prisoners believe they’re the NFL.

Prison inmates across the country are preparing to go on strike by refusing to eat or work, as a way to protest what they call ‘prison slavery’ and poor conditions.

Though the extent of the planned strike is not known, prisoners in at least 17 states say they will be taking part in coordinated action, which will begin on Tuesday and last through September 9.

Like I give a f**k if prisoners stop eating. The big question is how long am I going to have to wait for my damned license plates?

The masterminds of the strike have issued a list of 10 ‘demands’, including an improvement of prison conditions, an end to life imprisonment, and an end to low-paid jobs behind bars.

Shut the f**k up, convict. You’re in prison, not at Job Corps.

Currently, hundreds of thousands of inmates work behind bars, in jobs ranging from GED tutors to custodial and other work that helps prisons run. The average pay runs about 20 cents an hour.

Now, prisoner advocates say that the low-paid work amounts to ‘slavery’ and demanding that taxpayers pay inmates higher wages for their work behind bars.

I agree. Thee solution is cutting off work – and pay – for every convict, effective immediately.

  1. If they don’t like the pay, food, and accommodations, then maybe they won’t commit crimes after they are released.

    Obviously, their plight doesn’t raise my Give-A-Poop Meter off its bottom peg.

  2. They should be thankful they have 3 hots and a cot. I don’t think we should pay them a dime. We ought to start charging them for food and lodging if we have to pay them more for menial tasks. Otherwise, stay out of trouble!

    TXNick – Yeah, I tried sympathizing with them, but then I remembered people like them killed my friend, burglarized my in-laws’ house, and call me a “pig” on a daily basis. Fuck them.

    Ronni – Exactly. Strip them of the work, hire others to do said work, and pay them a fortune. Then tell the inmates about it.

    Cathy – Exactly. The Hunger Games in real life.

  4. I think they are just getting ready for the influx of Democrats headed their way from the Justice Department. Frankly, I hope they starve themselves for more than 3 weeks and as for life inprisonment, I’m up for abolishing that completely. Fry the bastards immediately and save we the taxpayers some cash.

    1. If the death penalty is ever abolished, the anti-death penalty lawyers will just start litigating against life imprisonment as “cruel and unusual.” Terminate the criminals, and hold their litigatious lawyers liable for restitution to their clients’ victims.

  5. Out here in otherwise crazy California, the non violent prisoners are given the honor of helping out with all the damn fires. Yes, I said honor. They get paid $2 bucks a day for their work, get training for a possible job w/ CalFire & are actually looking forward to helping out.
