Ask and Ye Shall be Denied

If you are a very, very good prisoner and do all that is asked of you, some nicks allow you to buy a DVD player and DVD's from your paltry income.

My old mate, Trev, pops along to my cell to whinge. He has ordered three DVD's but the Security department have refused to let him have them. My perpetual outrage generator was just kicking into gear on his behalf at this wickedness when it occurred to me that I should ask more. "What were the films...?" The Entity. Straw Dogs. The Accused.

"Trev", I said, "these films - you don't see that they have a theme that the staff may find worrying?" Trev, a rapist, pondered for the briefest moment before deciding that these 3 films with the theme of rape, rape and gang rape respectively were in no way problematic.

I hate to say it, but there are moments when I'm glad that some people aren't yet released.

  1. I guess you don't have much to choose from when it comes to "mates"?
