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.
