Good thing they weren't in Italy.

The regular food had been deemed *sunglasses* gruel and unusual punishment.
 
2014-08-31 01:07:17 PM  
There is no regular food in Indonesia
 
2014-08-31 01:08:31 PM  
Remember yesterday's refugees-in-Italy thread?

*This* is situation to get scornful about. *This* is an example of stupid people making stupid food-related protests.

Yeah, one of the most vibrant cuisines in the world with influences from over 300 ethnic groups.

Ah, the IDIOTS are the ones claiming it's racist.  Got it.

Can we merge this thread with the thread about refugees in Italy complaining about the constant pasta?

I'm not trolling. It's just a helpful suggestion.

You pretty much eat what the assholes choose to give you. Two words: Sheriff Arpaio.

Or, if you prefer, bread and water.

Is the food as bad as cafeteria food from the average university food plan? Improve it. Or else there will be riots.

Is it totally inappropriate, i.e. pork to Jews and Muslims, no vegetarian offering for Buddhists and Vegans and so forth? Fix the menu. Most prison food is provided by the same companies that supply other institutions and their menus are adaptable to varied food taboos and nutritional restrictions.

On this issue I am neither conservative nor liberal. You can't expect inmates to be choosers, but you have to be basically decent and humane because dammit, a lot of these guys were innocent before they were sent to a school for crime at the cost of a university or a Grand Hotel.
 
2014-08-31 01:45:00 PM  
From the little bit I know about this case, it sounds to me like that guy should have thought twice before going to Bali with crazy daughter and possibly equally crazy mom.

Let this be a warning to all: when you date crazy people, you end up in front of a firing squad in Bali.

On the other hand, maybe she's hot.

It's racist against native Indonesians, who don't get outside catering.

The white guys are getting special treatment is the inference, although it is possible the cops were just being humane or taking some kind of bribe to provide special services as privately-run debtors prisons used to do on a lavish scale in the 1800s. It was better to be a rich debtor than a poor creditor even in darkest Dickensian England.

She looks like she's 12. If you're into 12 year olds, then good news!

Choosing between unknown prison food in a foreign country and KFC... I would choose KFC.

Between McDonalds and KFC, I would still choose KFC.

If I am ever incarcerated in Indonesia (not likely), I will demand Ruth's Chris.
 
2014-08-31 01:53:13 PM  
Why were they charged with murder when all they did was complain about the food?

That's one tough country.


or one badly written headline.

No, that is not the inference.

Maybe the guy is black however. That's really I can come up with. Though he's a dumbass if he thinks the Indonesian police would know not to bring him KFC and watermelon.

I think "he" is a "she". The article is a little confusing.
 
2014-08-31 02:11:28 PM  
The girl is half black (which in the States translates to entirely black), and the dude's an aspiring rap artist (draw your own conclusions).

Being typical Americans, they assume everyone else in the world knows all about American culture (while they themselves are pig-ignorant about everything outside their hometown).  They're accusing the Indonesian prison authorities of knowing about the black people + friend chicken stereotype.

Whereas in reality, KFC was probably the closest American fast food outlet to the jail.
 
2014-08-31 02:12:21 PM  
FTFA: "Her complaints about the meals prompted police to buy American fast food for her and Schaefer. But when they were given KFC fried chicken, the two accused police of racist stereotyping."

This made me laugh out loud.

I decided that I better not mention the rapper thing, because, that's like racists + Eminem.
 
2014-08-31 02:22:27 PM  
Pffft just give her what other prisoners get and they can take it or leave it. Girl sounds like a grade A spoiled brat and her mom should have cut her off and tossed her out at 18.

Stupid little biatch.  KFC is practically the only western food chain that has a presence in Indonesia.
 
2014-08-31 02:53:31 PM  
The disagreement was over the mother's contention that since she had paid for Schaefer's airfare to Bali, the couple should cover the cost for his hotel room, Djoko said the staff told police.


I don't know what mom is playing at here.  You can get a room for 8-12 bucks a night in many areas of Bali, but Nusa Dua (which is where their hotel was) isn't one of them.  It is the "golden ghetto" of , Bali, where all the really expensive resorts are.  Rooms costs hundreds per night and I doubt Mr. Aspiring Rapper could afford to stay there.

And they killed her white mother. There's your racism.

FTFA: Sheila Mack was white, and her husband - composer and arranger James Mack, who died in 2006 - was black.

uberaverage: I don't get the whole "black people like fried chicken." Of course they do! Its delicious!


I've never understood it, either.  I grew up in the South, where everybody eats fried chicken.  Watermelon, too.  I love the stuff, and I'm white.

next time read TFA!!!

2014-08-31 04:22:38 PM  
Yeah, that's gonna happen when you stick your dick in KFC. I mean crazy.

Too bad for the mother, though.

Sometimes reading doesn't help it seems.

So, black people, never, ever, eat fried chicken?

Boyfriend is an "aspiring rapper"?
In other words, he wants to live the rock star life but has no actual talent, right?
Seems to me they're exactly where they need to be right now.
