2001-07-18 08:26:37 AM baby milks, which contain 50 times more manganese than mother's milk...

So, are they getting mother's milk now?

I'm sure if they put in certain ingredients, they will reduce violence greatly. Arsenic?

Just don't feed 'em. Sure, there will be a short term increase in violence, but in the long term there will be none.

I say give 'em each a knife and let 'em fight it out till there's one guy left. That guy gets a carton of milk and first choice of weapons next time.

Um yes, I'll have the tossed salad please.

You know, I'm not sure, but I don't think there's much maganese in bread and water, try that officials.

Why don't they just try revoking television
priviledges and taking the carpets out of their
cells if they don't behave.

Maybe they should also stop serving wine
with the scampi and lobster.

Or just put their most violent prisoners up against
the best from other countries (except brazil, as they've
all escaped) and have professional, international prison
rioting. Would keep them occupied at least.

Keep them on the pork in buns diet
2001-07-18 11:02:38 AM  
Give em some weed and then some milk and cookies.
2001-07-18 11:33:06 AM  
How about getting them normal food for once and maybe there will be none :P

I wonder if this explains why PETA members can be violent wackos...they get too much soy milk.
2001-07-18 12:12:48 PM  
Feed 'em Al Sharpton.

In the year 2525...

Anyone ever play the computer game ABUSE? Heh.

"Saito-san, would you like the first drink?"
"I must honorably decline the sakesoy milk."
"Not a drinking man?"
"No. I had an addiction. When I drank sakesoy milk, I wanted to kill people."

Sulfur, thats what they used to put in prison food. Kept them from gettin hard-ons and from fighting. Too bad that got stopped.
"oh the sulfur tears up my insides!"
"Boo-ho, I'm bleeding internally...oh my life!"

Prisoners are such babies.

Maybe they need to change school food too.
2001-07-18 03:08:13 PM  
Ya wonder if, maybe, those soy based baby milks are what got em in there in the first place?

Nothin like mamma unwittingly feeding her little boy something that makes him want to bash heads before he can even walk.
2001-07-18 03:24:49 PM  
I say put them in communes with farmland and handtools and let them grow their own damn food. No work, no eat.
2001-07-18 03:32:15 PM  
beans, beans..give them beans..
2001-07-18 04:16:05 PM  
I thought they were going to advocate a prison diet for common folk, as a means to lose weight. There was a hospital diet that was kinda popular a couple of years back. It was a really stupid idea: feed normal people the rapid weight-loss diet of preoperative fatties. Real healthy...

Why are these guys getting too much Manganese in the first place? Is soy baby milk really big among violent Mexican criminals?
2001-07-18 04:30:31 PM  
It was a serious question. Really. Are there any Violent Mexicans on this here thing?
2001-07-18 04:43:51 PM  
i was a violent mexican baby and then i began smoking pot and i'm now a happy mexican pacifist. i won't kill you unless you steal my stash.
2001-07-18 04:53:52 PM  
They should feed violent criminals a diet of lead, fed to them by the business end of a .454 Raging Bull
2001-07-18 07:29:32 PM  
Beans, beans the magical fruit.
The more you eat the more you toot.

FA: Nice piece. If I ever bought a handgun, I'd probably buy a Taurus.

Lady Mersault: Now that you are married we can truly call you "Mme" instead of "Mlle".

I think the real story here is the untapped reality show potential.

So you're telling me that if I rob a bank to pay my bills so that I can goto prison so I don't have to pay bills anymore they are going to put me on a diet? Sheesh...guess I won't rob the bank. Self induced obesity is much more fun than politically induced diets.
2001-07-19 01:58:23 PM  
And why would this story be "silly"? I thought interesting was more like it... :-) Hell, if anyone can deter violence in prison just with a simple diet change -- I say give 'er!
