    Remember in Office Space when they thought they'd get conjugal visits...

    Apparently this happens in NY.

    State Corrections Department explores conjugal visit rules for gay married inmates - NYPOST.com

    Let's not let the conversation derail into a discussion of gay rights, this is just the article that opened my eyes to the practice. Apparently in at least some NY prisons, legally married persons meeting certain conditions are allowed 48-hour "family reunion" visits in a kitchen-equipped "residential unit." Again I must state, prisons are way, way too lax on prisoners in my opinion.

    "What are you in for?"

    "Embezzlement."

    "That sucks."

    "Nah. Cable TV, gym, 3 hot meals, a library, free education, free medical care, heating and air, free room and board. Conjugal visits with my wife..."

    It is either that or a bunch of even more worked up prisoners who will be even more prone to riot and do violent things against wardens.

    The prison system really needs to go back to chain gangs and making little rocks from big ones, why should prisoners be treated better than people who are struggling just to make an honest living.

    Because its not their fault, they were spanked and not hugged as kids.

    OK, I can't take it anymore, it is killing me. I 100% agree with your initial statement and I'll add that we should send them to Sheriff Joe and send the bill to their families.

    Not here it isn't. Barely any heat, no air conditioning, no cable, no conjugal visits, not 3 HOT meals, charge for medical care, etc. Maybe it's just a NY thing.

    Not to sound like a broken record, as I've posted on this issue before, I think there is a lot of misperception
    and misinformation about what prison is actually like.

    I did some work at a Texas prison "Tennessee Colony" and 3 hours was enough. I don't think the inmates were enjoying their time in there. I know I wasn't, and I knew I could leave any time.

    I didn't say prison was a dream. I just think that there are too many amenities. Prison may suck, but I think it should suck even more.

    I guess that should depend on the crime, the individual behavior while in custody and many other factors. As I said, 3 hours was enough.

    I can agree with that. White-collar criminals don't necessarily need the most hardcore of punishments; they just need to be taken out of the system for a while and given a record to make things harder on them. Violent criminals though. If I had my way they'd feel lucky to get 3 cold meals a day.

    I know in VA, state inmates have it pretty good, at least they did in the early 90's. I worked in a "field unit" for a while and had my training at a traditional prison. They even get liberal use of a telephone to make outside calls!

    Jails are a different story. The one right down the street from me, balogna sandwiches and water are the norm, they even regularly serve only two meals a day! And they have no AC. Sucks for the COs though.

    But I firmly agree incarceration facilities should be as unpleasant as possible. Make getting out and holding down a job seem like a veritable vacation by comparison. But we can't be "mean" like that.
