Each week the prison shows two movies to the prison population. However, the movies are G- or PG-rated only. No R-rated movies are allowed. The administrators want to protect prisoners from exposure to too much violence and sexually explicit scenes. If it had its way, the administration would have a security sensor program on each TV that prisoners own to it could choose what the prisoners could watch. It's obvious that the programs shown on TV have more violence and sexually explicity than the videos prisoners are allowed to watch. It can't and won't take away TVs since TVs are a tool to pacify and control the prisoners. How can anyone not give the CDC two thumbs up for its concern for prisoners?
The money used to rent the videos are from the Inmate Welfare Fund. It doesn't cost the taxpayer a cent.
This week the Lord of the Rings trilogy is on, plus a movie called Uptown Girl. Since I work all weekdays, I can't watch any of the movies. Today I decided to catch up on all the videos. It's out of the ordinary that it's showing four videos this week. Everyone was wondering what's wrong.
Anyway, I made me a cup of raspberry tea with honey and watched ten and a half hours of videos. I didn't like the Fellowship of the Ring. Too slow and no action. The other two were dope. I had a relaxing day.
