I was watching a tv show on FX called Justified with my roommate earlier tonight. In the episode two prisoners managed to escape at a prison sponsored picnic they were having outside prison grounds.


Do some prisons really let their prisoners go on guarded picnics outside prison?


My roommate said that his father had these "picnics" at the federal prison he worked at.


Is my roommate full of it?

That its along the same lines as CSI.....


Which has corrupted America. People think Im gonna solve a burglary in 2 hours cause Im gonna pull DNA and get a infared light and all that good stuff and Ill be able to solve it in 2 hours like they do on CSI.



Yes, I understand that it is a tv show, and that everything on tv isn't completely realistic, but just because it is on tv does not make it unrealistic, right?

You watch those types of shows and the chances are probably slim.  I like shows like Dateline and channels such as ID.  I find more "realistic" stuff.

2 hours? I thought it took 1 hour, withou commercials and using Tivo to skip the commercials, it should only take like 45 mins to solve crimes. 2 hours would be way too long Shock. LOL

I love taping shows so that I can watch them later and fast forward through 20 minutes of commercials.

I don't like commercials either, but does anyone know the answer to the original question?

Ummmm.... not me! I'm a Trooper, not a turn key! Go to the corrections page and see if you can rattle somebody awake over there.

No. Prisons do not let their prisoners go on Picnics. They're in Prison. Not Day Camp. Most of the Crap that comes on TV (COPS, Police Women of _______ County, Speeders) is all garbage. You will learn to hate that crap once you make it into LE and have been there for a while. It's Like watching people make fun of you to your face when you lay your @$$ on the line everyday. And that's the "reality" shows. The fiction is even worse.

They actually do! They are put to work by picking up the trash on the side of the roads.  The food is found back inside the prison after a hard day's work.  That's the prisoners' picnic. A bit of a twist on the traditional one.

Speeders has to be the most ridcolous thing I have seen in my life. They try to make it into a comedy and as harsh as this sounds, Im not gonna feel bad when one of those cops get killed on a traffic stop trying to cool and funny for the show.



If you think SPEEDERS is bad, try watching "Street Court."  What a joke.

Ah, you all have just reinforced my reasons for not watching TV.  LOL 


duxmtn... you don't follow directions well.  Hummm, better learn quick!  Read a bit more on her (TOU) instead of watching un-REALITY TV.
