While I might agree with you on general principle, the problem is that there are innocent people in prison because of "crusading" Attorney Generals like Scott Lockyer (I may have the name wrong here - he's the A-Hole from MA), Eliott Spitzer, and that fascist swine from California whose name escapes me. Those people don't even deserve to be in prison, much less get HIV.
...are you a fellow LUEser?
They already have them. They are the new guys who havn't bulked up yet.
It's cruel...but true.

The following was written by CA Assemblyman Ray Haynes, R-66th Assembly District.
The winner of this year's Fourth Annual Nosey Award is Assembly Member Paul Koretz, D-West Hollywood. Mr. Koretz authored AB1677, the Correctional Condoms Act. AB 1677 provides for the legalization of, and distribution of contraband in our state's correctional facilities, by allowing the free distribution of condoms and dental dams to inmates.
With the understanding that sex between inmates is a crime, this bill's stated purpose is to prevent disease. What this strange bill does not do, is provide for the disposal of the potentially hundreds of thousands of used condoms. Who gets stuck with that job? Would our correctional peace officers be relegated to the duties of a peep show custodian?
Inmates often indulge in a practice known as "gassing," which is the act of using their own bodily fluids as a weapon. An Officer may be exposed to inmates' blood, urine, feces and semen as an inherent job hazard. Now, with a condom, the inmates have a "water balloon" delivery system.
