Not allowing them to buy pizza equates to bringing back the stocks. Talk about having no sense of proportion.

I don't see prisoners ordering pizzas as being one of their rights. Maybe as a reward for behaving themselves over a period
of time. Not automatic.

You are in prison to be PUNISHED.

Hell no prisoners should not be allowed to purchase Pizza (or anything else from outside).

People often complain about taxpayers having to pay to feed and clothe prisoners. If they want to buy their own and save people some money why not?

Touchy one here. If everyone has the same stuff, then it reduces theft
and intimidation to acquire the possessions of others. Doesn't mean it
doesn't happen, but helps to reduce it. Just playing Devils Advocate
here, is all.

Sounds rather silly in my view, if we are going to actually ban people in jail from ordering Pizza
remember someone has to enforce the law. It adds one more thing to search for. Even if they
find pizza in someones cell can you imagine how much fun the media will have at the expense
of government. Besides the pizza shops will complain. This is so trivial it hardly deserves a
mention. But I suppose the government can take up time worrying about pizza if they want.
After all they must be running out of ideas by now. they can't stop the drugs and other stuff,
but pizza they can because the follow the smell of the pizza. I say its another immature and crazy
idea

I am also sure three square meals are served even if pizzas are being ordered. I doubt much money is saved.

Maybe but if things like this are not just self-paid but a privilege that's earned, it then becomes part of an incentive program.

To get a job in prison to buy pizza means they are behaving themselves and have proved they are worthy of employment while in prison.

On Sunday, everyone gets an ice cream as a treat. Is that too much too?

And one against those pampered hospital patients who prefer a horrible meal like pizza to that of the wonderful meals supplied by gov't contracted "caterers".
You'd be surpried what you get in hospital these days. If you want burgers, chicken fingers or pizza etc ask for the kids/teen menu and you'll get burgers, chicken fingers, pizza etc.

Same goes for airlines, when booking, book your food ahead and you get decent meals or you suffer with quiznos california wraps or veggies and dip like everyone else.

Maybe you can write your MP so they can order Hookers, ahem Escorts too.

Screw them, they're criminals. They shouldn't even be allowed to vote.
