Yeah right... we have to fix this...

...because it's just not fair...

A total smoking ban in penitentiaries has turned hard-core lifers into jittery, candy-eating blobs, according to a portrait painted yesterday by a lawyer in Federal Court.
So what's the problem here? Myself, I'd be inclined to turn some of these homicidal thugs into dog food.

But hey, this is Canada... let's ask a lawyer...
Arguing that inmates should at least be allowed to smoke outside, Julius Grey said prison life is hard enough without having to give up what is still a socially acceptable behaviour.

Affidavits filed by the plaintiffs list the difficulties faced by such people as Gerald Matticks, leader of Montreal's West End Gang, and Benoît Guimond, a bike gang member who killed a 17-year-old bystander outside a Montreal nightclub in 2001.
Sorry Benoît... as far as I'm concerned, you'll just have to find something else to suck on.

...why not just give the poor little babies their organic pacifiers and let them reap the whirlwind?

Smoking is a legally acceptable behaviour, not a socially acceptable behaviour. Unless it's pot.

i guess i'm just a simple sort of person, but imho... if you're in a federal prison for taking someone's life... you no longer have any "rights".

well... maybe the right to remain silent.
