Jail getting sweeter by the hour

Postby kingfish » 01 Mar 2012 23:48

I have just read that cable TV will soon be available for prisoners and my pressure is starting to boil, so let me keep calm. As soon as this Government takes one step forward, it takes five steps back.
I have no problem with prisoners getting to see local tv but how many hours are they scheduled to watch tv for? And how exactly is cable tv supposed to aid in rehabilitating them?
So they are already getting three square meals a day. Soon they will be able to get conjugal visits to ease the tension, and now cable tv? What channels will they be looking at? TBN, EWTN only? Will the prisons be getting the basic cable package or a premium package with HBO, Cinemax etc?
Again and again, taxpayers are to pay for these criminals to live a luxurious lifestyle behind bars. So now prison life would seem like a bed and breakfast? Just now the prisons can compete with Hyatt and Hilton? Why not throw in a gym, spa service and KFC delivery on demand?
Steups. Everyone talks about how the PNM wasted money, which is true, but wait until after five years. This Government would have spent sums on ridiculous items/events that even one of the richest men, Bill Gates, never spent on in his life. Imagine that. Prison life is getting sweeter by the hour. Sigh.

DEMALI Ollieverre was yesterday adjudged the Womens Prison Calypso Monarch.
Singing the song, ‘Take Care of Your Mother’, earned her two titles — 2013 Womens’ Prison Calypso Monarch and Best Social Commentary song.....In a verse, she sang: “If I had listened to my mother I would not have been here.” It was a song which had many in the crowd gathered at the Women’s Prison compound in Golden Grove, comprising women inmates, prisons officers, and the Prisons Service executive listening attentively to its lyrics.

This calypso and its message resonated not only with the audience but also with the judges who at the end of the competition, awarded her first place. Ollieverre beat 12 other competitors for first place and her victory was announced by chief judge Carlyce Babb. There were several guest artistes whose performance had the inmates jumping and prancing for joy. The official results of the Calypso competition are as follows -

First place, Demali Ollieverre; second place, Melissa Thomas (who also captured the Best Prison-themed Calypso with a song “Prison Makes Me Stronger”); third place, Maya Logan, Tekiyah Leith and Hasina Edwards, a trio, who sang on the theme crime and in fourth place, Rasha Sobrian whose song ‘Wuk Meh Nanny’ also earned her the title of Best Soca........
