Texas, the state of innovation. Privatization of prisons still costing too much? Prisons overcrowded? Over worked SWAT teams searching for pot and expired driver’s licenses from recidivists? Texas discovers a brand new way to keep prison populations low and sheriffs still in the field spending that free, homeland security money. Don’t provide air conditioning and let mother nature take her course. 19 prisoners died from heat and the official reaction has been so what? They’re in prison aren’t they? Further that their protocols are sufficient.
We have significant protocols in place governing the movement of offenders early in the day for work assignments, we supply ice water and have fans and other equipment to increase air movement,” Livingston told the Houston Chronicle. “We believe the protocols are appropriate.”
Yep, 19 deaths is A OK by them. I think they’ve discovered something. Hey it was their choice to do the crime, now it’s time for consequences. It’s not like they happened all at once, just a few a year, for the most part. Clearly, they need to amp that up. You can see why prison officials don’t want to admit humans caused global warming and lose their god given justice that’s just gonna get better.
Population control used to include diseases, famine, floods, poor birthing environments, and wars. We can just use prisons to weed out those who shouldn’t have survived. You know rapists, murderers, drug users, drunk driving without a license, tax fraud–everything but not paying your grazing fees for 20 years. You know all of those crimes that prove their genes shouldn’t be allowed to reproduce. Give em a glimpse of hell.
It keeps the population down and then we won’t have any arguments over reproductive control because we’ll need every person we can get. What I don’t get is why bother with bringing them to prison. Just shoot em on arrest cuz you know they’re guilty, especially if they look poor or are a person of color.
Here’s Young Turks on it.
