So if we get you all a Big Mac and fries you'll get vaccinated?

Interesting. I wasn't aware you could decline vaccinations while incarcerated.

Oh good gravy, the endless whine of the conservatives whenever people who have nothing get anything at all.  "It's not FAIR!"

Corrections officers ate not supposed to accept bribes and it is a crime to offer them one.
 
2021-10-25 7:34:53 AM  
I'm fine with throwing them in jail and giving them the same offer.

Apparently someone at the union doesn't know the difference between employment and incarceration.

"It seems like when it comes to the inmates getting vaccinated, it's all carrot, and when it comes to the staff getting vaccinated, it's all about the stick. And, we're feeling slighted."

On the plus side I guess this guy doesn't see himself as better than the people he is watching over, he seems them getting burgers and is like hey why no hamberder for me? If he had some elitist savior type attitude toward them he would be like 'well these low functioning dregs of society need a burger to bribe them into getting a vaccine where that would be silly and so far beneath us to offer some incentive to get a vaccine.'
 
2021-10-25 8:39:56 AM  
But, not everyone supports the incentives. President of the New York State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association, Michael Powers said, "It seems like when it comes to the inmates getting vaccinated, it's all carrot, and when it comes to the staff getting vaccinated, it's all about the stick. And, we're feeling slighted."

It's not the state's fault that you're a fat ass that won't eat carrots.

There's a lot of shiat you have no say in when you're in prison, particularly things pertaining to prison health and order.

For some reason our fearless leaders have carved out an exception for the COVID vaccine but they typically run a series of tests and give you your shots when you go through intake. It's not for you specifically; it's to keep the prison from becoming a breeding ground for communicable diseases.
 
2021-10-25 8:42:36 AM  
At least Corrections Officers are consistent. They want the state to pay for anti-stab protection, and they want to avoid getting needle-shanked. These guys just have an aversion to penetrations of any kind.

Bootleg: Interesting. I wasn't aware you could decline vaccinations while incarcerated.


Anyone can decline, it's just that you can be prevented from participation in various aspects of society if you do so. Since prisoners are already prevented from participation it's somewhat harder to convince them.

And they would be the first to complain if we offered them McDonalds to get a vaccine.
 
2021-10-25 8:47:40 AM  
While I am sure there are many bright and intelligent people who go into corrections, as a rule, the score you have to get on an civil service exam to be a correction's officer is much lower than the one to be a cop or a firefighter, and it shows.

This must be a real quandary for the Hamburgler, who sits in his cell pondering "Will a burger that is not pilfered taste as good as a stolen burger?"

Hmmmm.   To robble or not to robble?
 
2021-10-25 8:49:51 AM  
Let's be honest here, if a coupon for free McMeal was offered to people that received the vaccine, many holdouts would jump at that chance.

I didn't think it possible, but the quality of the burgers have dropped even more.  Locally here anyway.  I ended up throwing out most of a big mac that was subpar meat, tasted cheaper than the double.

If prisoners don't want to get vaccinated, kick them out of jail.

Sometimes I wonder if they're intentionally refusing the vaccine.  Correctional officers are driving the pandemic in prisons

Every Corrections employee I've met falls in the "Fox News is too liberal" crowd.  I bet Trump won 95% of their vote in 2020. And that's in one of the bluest parts of the country.

I've met exactly one correctional officer who wasn't a raging asshole, and he quit in less than a year and took a job on an oil rig instead.

Because the Supreme Court has ruled that mandatory vaccinations are Constitutional for the general public, so it makes even more sense that it would be applicable for those who are incarcerated?

Mandatory isn't forced. You can still refuse it, just like any prisoner can.

Sorry, I'm old and dirty man, not sure everyone can keep up. Especially people that don't understand their basic rights.

They locked me up twice, with no vaccine, for a misdemeanor. Genius

Aww, the prison guards are feeling slighted because they're not being offered special prizes for participating responsibly in society? Take a deep breath and try to imagine how little anyone cares about your delicate feelings, Union Pig.

Either take the jab and keep your job or don't, nobody cares. There's thousands of vaccinated, GED-holding losers out there who are ready, willing and able to step into your monkey-job with very little training required.

It's a well-documented thing among people without the freedom to leave a place - prisoners, involuntarily-committed patients in psychiatric facilities, and elementary/middle/high school-age students, to name the three largest such populations - that they start defying any and every time they can, just to exert some measure of control over their lives. (There's also ODD, which is a slightly different thing, but easy to see how the pathology of both phenomena fit together. And whether the relationship between a defiant personality and being incarcerated is causal or correlative is irrelevant.)

There might be a reason prisoners would need additional motivation to do something to help protect the whole prison community against COVID, while one might expect that corrections officers - who already follow* an extensive ruleset, and whose job (at least ostensibly) already involves protecting the prison community - wouldn't.

// unless... you don't think there might be some of those defiant-personality types wearing guard uniforms, do you?
// that there might be something behind what created that division between guard and prisoner?
// and that these produce distinct and oppositional cultures that feed off hatred for each other in a mutually-reinforcing cycle of violence? with one side armed by the state and the other (almost?) literally powerless to stop whatever abusive horrors their (for lack of a better word) captors can dream up?
* well, "follow". Although I guess they follow the Book of Unwritten Rules, so that's also an irrelevant distinction.

I went to McDonald's recently. Burger and fries was about $7. They're pitching a fit over $7?  Grown men and women angry they didn't get a $7 meal for a vaccine that cost them $0 dollars.
