And now from someone who actually has read the article.
Being a prison warden is no easy task.
The way the "justice" system works these days, I am thinking that prison sounds good.

Actually, I did read the article, personally speaking I don't think prisoners should have t.v at all, common room or otherwise. They're there because they commited a crime, prison is the governemnts form of punishment, now I know there are many t.v shows that are just unbareable...but it's still a form of entertainment.

Funny how our taxes are being spent to give the inmates all the comforts of home and I couldn't even afford the frigging remote to one of those tv's.

I think it's a great idea. Why shouldn't they be allowed to purchase a TV? It could very well be considered rehabilitative behaviour to own one. Much better than throwing them into the world cold turkey after they've served their time, only to find how the country has changed drastically.
And the TVs are purchased with funds that they've earned, no?
