Supermax Me

You could guess it's the name of a feminine hygiene product, a superhero’s dog, or one of those huge, greasy hamburgers Paris Hilton orally copulated on the hood of a car; you'd be wrong, but those are all good guesses.

Supermax
is home to some of America’s most notorious homicidal lunatics, including Zacarias Moussaoui-Wowie (9/11), Eric Rudolph (’96 Olympics and abortion clinic bomber), Richard Reid (shoe bomber), Terry Nichols (Oklahoma City) and Ted Kaczynski (Unabomber).

With a name and a roster like that, I imagine the building itself has a super-sized ego.

Supermax gets its name from the fact that it’s not just a maximum security prison, it’s a super-duper security prison.

How can this be? "Maximum" is an absolute, yet this purports to be more fortified than your run-of-the-mill maximum security facility.

It makes one wonder, then, what kind of prison has the highest security level of all. The Ubermax, perhaps? (Where will all
this penal one-upmanship end?)

I didn’t know the Supermax existed until recently, but I wonder, what does a prison like that have that others don’t? Five barbed wire fences instead of four? Eight guard towers instead of six?

You just know the people running lesser-security prisons feel threated by the Supermax. Its very existence suggests they're not doing enough to keep their
prisoners locked up.

Don't feel inadequate, guys. But do pick up a couple extra locks and some more shotgun shells down at the hardware store, why don't you?

supermax is a 23 hour lockdown prison,they are allowed 1 hour a day by themselves in a 20 by 20 foot room with 20 foot high concrete walls and a grated roof.They are allowed 1 shower per week.....

Which for these guys is too much...

will one shower a week keep America safer?

Only if the inmates are kept there. They have already shown by their past behavior the type of behavior they are likely to exhibit in the future.

Most of the guys incarcerated there have psychopathic personalities. As such we have given up on trying to rehabilitate such characters.

Just some thoughts.

Pete Bogs said...

jack - I agree, these guys are dangerous and hopeless...

hell - I could have looked up the specs myself... this post is largely facetious, if the intro and overall tone didn't tell you that already...

ardlair said...

Do the they do torture there?
I hear that is currently in fashion in some American prisons.

Pete Bogs said...

ardlair - that's mainly overseas... we do all our dirty work outside the US so our own laws don't apply...

Blue said...

And so the officials (who have penal problems of their own) can say 'well we outsourced it so we can't verify the allegations Mr UN person.

Bogs said..we do all our dirty work outside the US so our own laws don't apply...

This is a myth and was created by left wing pro-terrorist activists to discredit the administration but was never proved as factual..

All depends upon the Dems and their soft stance on criminals and punishment.... But over all I say yes one shower a week is plenty for these douchebags

Pete Bogs said...

bb - actually they have "penile" problems of their own, but maybe that's what you meant...

hell - "douche" is French for shower... intentional pun? wait, a conservative would never eat French fries much less use a French word! lol

Hellpig said...

I wouldn't know Bogs? I am not a Conservative....

Aunty Belle said...

Bluebolt, baby doll, youse suggesting the UN is squeaky clean an' capable of determinin' US status in the land of OZ? UN "peacekeepers" have woorst torture, rape, and genocide record of all --worse than Castro...no kiddin.'

Aunty Belle said...

Bawgs, sweet potato, Interpol could not find or verify the claim of outsourced US persuasion units....tsk tsk, and ya' jes' knows those squeaky clean (well douched) French Fries looked real hard.

Blue said...

Bogs - yes that is what I meant - like I said on other post - english not very clear currently.

AB - never intended to say that UN is squeaky clean - don't think anybody is actually (esp those smelly 1 shower a week guys). But US had to report to UN on torture and found a number of excuses why it wasn't actually their responsibility....

Bird said...

bogs, maybe florida should round up the alligators and send 'em all to the supermax.

hey - you missed my blog on florida bird flu. i was really thinking of you when i posted it.

Pete Bogs said...

AB - do you think the US would let anybody find something that we didn't want them to find? just cause you hide it well doesn't mean it doesn't exist... we moved our secret prisons to Africa ahead of Condy's visit to Europe...

BB - ;-)

bird - I like the idea of that prison for gators... at the very least they should get life sentences for those killings...

Aunty Belle said...

Bawgs, you say iffin' we ain't found them prisons of torture, it doan mean they ain't there...why chile' of course-- this is the same logic as "jes because we didn't find WMD, it doan mean they weren't there."

Hellpig said...

And if you can't find the prisons it does not mean they exist.

K9 said...

/bark bark bark

actually there is torture at the supermax ardlair. they give every inmate a laptop and an internet connection but they can only go to one place....you guessed it. dark times.

or maybe they could do a clinton style torture...you know like at waco? or maybe another clintonian high point: just let all the black ones kill each other while they look the other way and 'feel the pain"

/sniff

/grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Pete Bogs said...

AB - there's firm evidence our secret prisons are currently active... whereas, Saddam's WMDs are and were past-tense by the time we decided to take our attention away from the real front and open up another front in Iraq...

Aunty Belle said...

Dawg, howling funny!!

Bawgs, c'mon, chile, ya KNOWS that IF there were sure evidence of US torture--dont'cha think our enemies would be holding up before the word? After all, OBL could make great hay wif that--IF it existed.

meanwhile--there was WMD, says the UN...and Iraqi general now admits he has known that the WMDs was taken to Syria in private planes...

Pete Bogs said...

AB - there is evidence... look back at all the news stories about Poland, Romania and North Africa, if you care to... look at all the phantom flights that go through England, Germany and other countries... it's all there... whereas, the Saddam-9/11 connection was always a red herring...
