SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - California lawmakers passed a bill on Thursday to permit condom distribution in the state's prisons, where the HIV infection rate is eight times higher than on the streets of Los Angeles.

hey, why not pass out sex toys to the prisoners too.
let the disease infested criminals pass it around
They are thinking of making EIGHT year olds have to ride in booster seats - and making 12 year olds sit in the back seats - but hey, let's pass condoms out to prisoners.....
"hey, why not pass out sex toys to the prisoners too."
They already have them. They are the new guys who havn't bulked up yet.
Condoms don't work to prevent AIDS. They only make the pillow biters think they are safe. But hey, why let facts get in the way of spending money.
Remember, it's not rape, it's "suprise sex"!
( No more Olmert! No more Kadima! No more Oslo!)
Think of a wild parady of some kook-burger-run State, and you will come up with REAL policies in Khaliforniastan.
Yes means yes, no means yes.
What ever happened to saltpeter?
I am thankful that reuters chose not to include any doctored photos with this story. The imagery of 'green helmet guy' would be frightening!!
Providing clean needles in prison is next.
The courts have given prisoners more rights than just about any group other than illegal immigrants.
cells have to be the proper temperature.
choice of meals and three times a day
pay for work
access to legal books and lawyers
able to practice what the prisoner calls religion (live chickens to kill if necessary)
guards must say please and thankyou (prisoners may reply with feces)
and, now, condoms
Holes in Condoms . . .
STDs are very tiny organisms, minuscule in size compared to sperm. These super-small viruses can get through a hole in a condom much more easily than sperm can. For example, HIV (the AIDS-causing virus) is so small that two million of the disease-causing agents could crowd on the period at the end of a sentence.
In 1993 the University of Texas analyzed the results of 11 different studies that had tracked the effectiveness of condoms to prevent transmission of the AIDS virus. The average condom failure rate in the 11 studies for preventing transmission of the AIDS virus was 31%.
One reason condoms fail in preventing the transfer of AIDS is that latex condoms have tiny intrinsic holes called "voids." Sperm is larger than the holes, but the AIDS virus is 50 times smaller than these tiny holes which makes it easy for the virus to pass through [Source: Dr. C. M. Roland, editor of Rubber Chemistry and Technology]. To give you an idea of how easy it would be for the virus to pass through these holes, just imagine a ping pong ball going through a basketball hoop.
Gross is right. Give em out. Who cares? That won't cost California too much and might actually save on medical bills. Once in prison they have no morals anyway.
Prison sex, prisoner - prisoner or guard - prisoner is all ready against the rules, and the condoms are an admission the rules do not mater.
