Connecticut Prisoners Express Anger Over Porn Ban

By PAT EATON-ROBB

Associated Press
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A group of prisoners has begun a letter-writing campaign to protest what they see as an unfair ban on pornography inside the state’s correctional institutions.

The Department of Correction announced in July that it would be banning all material that contains “pictorial depictions of sexual activity or nudity” from the prisons beginning next summer.

The state says the ban is intended to improve the work environment for prison staffers, especially female staffers, who might be inadvertently exposed to pornography.

“While it is not supposed to be displayed, it is still visible to staff, whether it be on the inside of a foot locker or underneath their bunks, so they are still exposed to it,” said Correction Department spokesman Brian Garnett. “And secondarily, is the fact that this is contrary to our rehabilitative efforts, particularly when it comes to sex offenders.”

The department has received about three dozen letters from inmates, many of them form letters, claiming the recently adopted ban violates the inmates’ First Amendment rights. Some of those letters also were sent to The Associated Press.

They suggest either lifting the ban or providing inmates with alternatives such as “cable programming that offers and displays nudity, also sexual activity.”

The letters say the suggestions are being made to avoid litigation. The department has not received any lawsuits, Garnett said.

Bill Dunlap, a law professor at Quinnipiac University, said there is a constitutional argument to be made. But, he said the courts have generally sided with prison officials, as long as they can prove the ban has a legitimate goal other than to simply suppress material that some people might find objectionable _ such as maintaining safety in the prisons, or keeping the material out of the hands of sex offenders.

“The courts don’t require the prison officials to look for other ways of achieving those goals without infringing on First Amendment rights, to the extent that they would for government outside the prison,” he said. “Based on the press release and the notice to the prisoners, it looks as though it’s in the general area of regulations that have been upheld in the past.”

But the state’s total ban on sexually explicit material appears to go beyond bans that the Supreme Court has upheld in the past, he said.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut said is not representing any of the inmates and doesn’t advocate for pornography in prisons, but is concerned that the ban could be enforced in an arbitrary and overly broad manner.

“Similar regulations have been used to censor an image of the Sistine Chapel, newspapers and magazines with lingerie ads and the novel `Ulysses,”’ Andrew Schneider, executive director of the ACLU of Connecticut, said in a statement.

Garnett said the department is confident the ban will survive any legal challenge. The ban doesn’t include material that could be considered literary, educational, artistic or scientific, he said. Decisions on whether a picture meets those exceptions will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

“It’s, to put it mildly, not a difficult decision when it comes to most of this material,” he said.

Inmates were given a year to dispose of any pornography they might have, which will allow any current magazine subscriptions to run their course, he said. The total ban will take effect in July 2012.

After that, material considered to be pornography will be taken as contraband and inmates found with it could face such punishments as a loss of commissary privileges, loss of phone or the loss of visits.

The ban has the support of the union that represents prison guards. Lisamarie Fontano, president of Local 387 of the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees, said she has been pushing for such a ban for several years, and has received complaints from female employees who have been sexually harassed by inmates using pornography.

“It’s a betterment to all to have it gone,” she said. “Some inmates don’t want it, because their own sexual and mental issues were being forced onto them, even though it shouldn’t be there in the first place.”

Prisoners also use pornography as currency in prison, trading the pictures for other things of value, she said.

Garnett said Commissioner Leo Arnone decided on a total ban after studying what was being done in other states.

Policies vary widely. Many states, including Connecticut, tried to ban only material deemed deviant. Under current state regulations, inmates can have sexually explicit material as long as it does not depict children, bestiality, sadomasochism or the use of force.

“There was a never-ending problem with definitions of what you were trying to ban and keeping up with what was out there,” Garnett said.

    here in ct, criminals have more rights than citizens. Kid I went to school with got arrested, never finished high school, now working in NYC. I, on the other hand went to college, did the right thing thus no job.

    3. Byte says:

      I’d laugh and call you an idiot… if you were wrong… and you’re not.

      I lived in Connecticut.. talk about a back assward state… but still, it is a LIBERAL state and ALL liberal states are like that, Joey…

      But from the looks of things, that may be changing soon… via violence.

    4. FugginMorons says:

      Your strange, disjointed, nonsensical story does little to paint an accurate picture of reality, let alone Connecticut. . Woopy doo he got arrested in high school. For what? He is now working NYC, woopy doo again. What kind of work? You have a college degree? Woopy doo… That doesn’t guarantee you a job. Unless you want to live in a socialist society where the government gives everyone a job. Maybe the kid you went to high school has more marketable skills.

      There are plenty of jobs out there, maybe none you believe you are entitled too, but still plenty of jobs so quit your crying.

      1. Barry's CT. SSN 042-68-4425 FAILS 'E-VERIFY' says:

    5. FugginMorons says:

      Punished with no job? Jobs are not a right and a lack of one is not punishment.

      “Its almost like a conspiracy to break the will of the people.”

      Thats just an excuse sad-sacks tell themselves about why they are unemployed. maybe if you quit blaming other people and took some initiative you wouldn’t be on the Internet complaining about being unemployed.

    6. Joe says:

      When someone commits a crime and found guilty and sentenced to prison time they LOSE all civil rights , end of story !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    7. joey zasa says:

      Im with you byte, already preparing

    8. MorganGray says:

      @ Porn… Seig Heil! You have done well…

      … you little marching brown-shirt.

      What? Der Fuerher can’t stand criticism, or controversy, so he sends you little Nazi Wannabees out to report anyone who says anything bad about him to the Attack Watch Gestapo?
      What’s next? All conservatives will have to wear a big yellow “C” on our sleeves? We will be classed as sub-human? Rounded up and sent to the camps?
      You call Republicans Nazis, well, skippy, you just showed who the real National Socialists really are.
      ‘weidersehen.

    9. FugginMorons says:

      “What’s next? All conservatives will have to wear a big yellow “C” on our sleeves?”

      To be fair I highly doubt, there are many real conservatives here. Most would fail the litmus test since they are pro-fascist, pro status quo neocon plutocrats.

      But even those bozos are protected by the 1st Amendment to spout rubbish,

    10. jerrykregle says:

      you must be white thus no job or freebies

  2. BigBoa says:

    Cletus,,,,you would NOT believe the number of people that experience the same thing. If you were smart enough to work for the auto companies out of school instead of going to college, you retire by 50…..handsomely too…..

    1. cletus van damme says:

      what auto companies in ct? you mean the ones in failed city of Detroit?

  3. 4Dees says:

    If Chris Dodd has anything to do with this, the prisoners will have their porn rights restored. More of the leftwing’s destruction of our morals.

    1. Morgan says:

      4Dees,
      Give me a break. It’s been scientifically proven that depriving adults especially one’s that are incarcerated from healthy sexuality whether physical or visual is damaging and destructive.
      And don’t give me the whole “prison rape is sexual” argument either. Any psychologist would tell you rape is about power not sexuality.

      1. dave marshall says:

        Lets see, prisoners with porn vs guards with jobs and no criminal record. I say the only rights criminals get is 3 hots and a cot. Chaingang work details, 3 hours of sleep a night and frequent interruptions of those sleep hours. Make it so bad they want to get out of there and not go back.

      2. morgan the pseudo scientist says:

        Can you provide a citation to what you claim has been scientifically proven? And if that is true, do we need to bring in prostitutes, paid for by taxpayers, so that they practice “healty sexuality”. Your ideas are silly. I know many people who had no sex into their late 20’s and they were perfectly healthy and happy people – in fact, they were high achievers becoming things like doctors, nurses, etc. You can have a healthy life without having sex. You’ve been watching to much pop-culture, pseudo-scientific babble.

        And you claim rape is not about sex – that doesn’t really make any sense. It includes sex. It may be about power and sex, but to say it isn’t about sex is stupid. That is like saying forced sex isn’t about sex. And even if looking at porn won’t make them more likely to rape others, something I find difficult to believe, it will make them want to have consensual sex and will therefore encourage passing of STDs and fights over who belongs to who, etc. Also, those studies that claim that rape isn’t about sexual gratification, those were conducted on people in free soceity and not people in prison. The prison environment and the people in prision are very different.

      3. BeeCee says:

        Morgan … It’s been scientifically proven that polar bears are dying, the ocean will cover California next year and Barack Obama is ‘intelligent’. Chris Dodd said so!

      4. glockgirl says:

        you are an idiot and have NO evidence to back up your ridiculous claims….because there are none. and not all rape is about power. again, you are an idiot. rape happens for many reasons and not all of them are about power. STFU and back your claims!

      5. IAmAProudAmerican says:

        Three hots and a cot is all they should get. Send them to Arpaio in AZ and they’ll be in pink undies!

    2. Kris Dudd says:

      Actually, if Chris Dodd and the liberal left has anything to do with it, the prisons will start hosting live performances. And possibly open a casino.

  4. BigBoa says:

    The censorship on these sites is just out of control. The mighty Boa tried to post something, it didn’t post and there was NOTHING wrong with it, unless you can’t use the word b I k I n I……stupid. At abc, they deleted a post by the mighty Boa as well as someone elses that WAS there then disappeared. Of course he was critical of O’Bozo…..

  5. BigBoa says:

    So one more try. The mighty Boa says this is GOOD! You can’t have a picture of a girl in a b I k I n I on your desk…. Less some bull d y k e be offended…..why shouldn’t the criminals be subject to the same rules as NON criminals? Remember when people wouldn’t defend ones right to smoke a cigarette? This is the result….

      1. jagoff is a jagoff says:

        Why yes you are dean keaton. You are indeed a jagoff, jagoff.

    1. MightyBoa says:

      “mighty” boa get over yourself. Is this the name your boyfriend gives you??

  6. TRE says:

    Porn is not a “right.” Prisoners have it way too easy. If they can masturbate all day to porn, that might be considered a great life by people who are into that kind of thing.

    1. to true says:

      Yeah, we’d probably lose a few democrat politicians who’d love that life and therefore go commit crimes so that they can go to prison.

  7. Jack says:

    execute more of them, record it and show it to them instead of porn

    1. Big Bear says:

      Once Martial Law is implemented, that will happen.

      Who knows, these Occupy types might be the straw that breaks the camel’s back?

    2. Byte says:

      Dang, Jack… yer a genius!!!

    3. Grandma Josie says:

      Right on – show all executions on TV and show all executions to all prisoners before they go to sleep at night – that will stop the masturbations and increase prayer time!

      We have inject reality into our lives.

  8. Lex says:

    Decadent human trash sucking up tax-money.

  9. Tom says:

    No porn!? Next they will will be prohibiting prisoners to carry guns! Unheard of!

    1. limn says:

      Too bad they are not protesting for the right to access cyanide pills.

  10. fedup says:

    Their self esteem is already taken a hit, poor things. Just let them have what they want and get over it. Works every time with the libs.

  11. Marot says:

    These prisoners should be working 12 hour days on a chain gang just their food. Our prisons are run by the inmates, drugs, cable tv, law libaries, doctors call, porn …for them prison is like Club Med.

  12. Cop says:

    Does Connecticut have spoiled prisoners or what? Next they’ll want their steaks medium rare. Do they get to chose what porn they want? Hustler or Playboy? Maybe a couple of pay for view movies? What a world.

    1. neil macaulay says:

      what a world I know; especially where you can work 20 years and get a 100k+ state pension and health care for the rest of your life.

  13. Terry. says:

    So no more cable? no more computers online? no more playboy mags?? GOOD!

  14. Jsmith says:

    Boo hoo.

    Want to sit around and stare at porn all day, then stay out of jail. There’s no constitutional right to girlie mags.

  15. hateslibs says:

    When you commit a crime you gave up your rights,shut up!!

  16. russ in nc says:

    Make them go to Church and watch the 700 Club on TV and listen to the Bible Out Loud CD. That will cure them. They’ll NEVER want to be sent back again for any reason.

  17. senator_kang says:

    I don’t see how the porn should be removed to make female guards more comfortable. If you don’t want to see porn, don’t work in a prison. Seems like if you let these guys masturbate, it might make them a bit more docile, and less prone to violence.

    1. senator_kang says:

      After all, some places allow conjugal visits… what if a prisoner doesn’t have someone to get conjugal with?

    2. Jack says:

      How about we castrate them instead?

      1. Morgan says:

        Aww Jack you’re so smart, ya let’s castrate someone that got caught with marijuana. Makes sense to me. Idiot.
        You do know not everyone in prison committed murder or rape right?
        In fact the vast majority are in their for drug-related crimes.

      2. Jeff says:

        Here’s an idea Morgan….Commit a crime and go to a place where you don’t have to work and have free access to tv , 3 meals and porn…..that sounds like punishment to me. Apparently you’re not getting this whole reward/punish concept………The punishment is to fit the crime only in terms of severity, but prison is prison. If you don’t want to do the time, then don’t do the crime. It really is literally as simple as that.

    3. replying to senator_doofus says:

      Are you really this clueless? Porn isn’t required for prisioners to masturbate. Tell me, do you think people masturbated 1000 years ago? How? They had no porn.

      And porn sexually arouses people and makes it more likely that they will want to have sex and more often leading to things like – rape, aids, and all sorts of other STDs. Get a clue, please.

    4. Dang says:

      Yep, let’s send in some drugs to make it a real party.

      Think about it, the tax payer is feeding their porn addiction.

    5. MorganGray says:

      See… this is where the disconnect happens between reality and … whatever world it is the social and political left live.
      I cannot have a Bible on my desk at work, because just having it there might offend someone.
      But, convicted felons, some of them violent sexual predators, should be allowed to have porn, whether or not it feeds their mental disease, and whether or not it offends the guards.
      This is the dichotomy of the left. They say of what offends us; “If you don’t like it don’t look”. They say of what offends them; “If we don’t like it, you can’t have it.”

  18. Bob says:

    American prisons are country clubs anyway. Take EVERYTHING away, lock them in their cell, no TV, no radio, no books, nothing. These are the bad guys. Why should hard working good guys be paying 50k a year to house the human trash. America—you a nation of wimps

  19. keith says:

    your in prison as PUNISHMENT – it’s not a vacation that you can look at porn and please yourself. Sorry but if you don’t like it, then you shouldn’t have committed the crime that put you there!

  20. snapper says:

    Odd, I thought these people were in prison as punishment…

  21. Mike says:

    Obviously these guys have too much time on their hands. Officials need to bring in a huge pile of boulders and have the guys turn it into 200 grit sandpaper. And like they do here in Louisiana, there’s always trash along roads that needs picking up.

  22. Beverly says:

    Sex offenders do NOT get rehabilitated .. they get Let out..where they do the same thing again and again,, Until they are caught (if they get caught) and they usually accelerate their deviant behaviour, till they kill some little kid or some othe innocent … seriously.. why have they even been allowed porn ?? talk about crazy… that`s too crazy for words..

    1. Mike Alright says:

      Just like US women are unable to NOT be overemotional, crazy, mental, over-talkative, annoying, nanny-state loving, intrusive, freedom reducing humans. we must need another law, right woman? That would make you “feel” safe wouldn’t it? Now go take your anti-depressants and get offline.

      1. MorganGray says:

        Um… Mike? She’s right. Sexual deviancy is not something that can be rehabilitated in prison.
        The FBI’s crime reports show that once a deviant is arrested, he stops being a sexual predator – for just as long as he is in prison. When he gets out, he starts right up again, and escalates and accelerates his crimes until he ultimately rapes and / or murders someone.
        We don’t need another law. We need to enforce the ones already on the books. We need truth in sentencing. We need to make prison such a hell-hole that no one will want to go back because they are scares spitless of the place.
        We need to stop allowing prisoners access to pornography which feeds and amplifies their addiction and deviancy,
        Oh, and FYI… in this case… Morgan is a man.
        You on the other hand have illustrated yourself to be a mouth-breathing, Archie Bunker wannabe, neanderthal, *male*.
        There’s a big difference. Male is genetic. Man is conduct, and I don’t mean insulting women who choose to speak their mind in order to seem all big and macho.
        Or… are you compensating for something?

    2. glockgirl says:

      another idiot. Some states, like Colorado, offer free rehabilitation for life. yet many sex offenders do not beleive they have a problem and refuse help. treatment is always avialble for those with sexual problems….but they must WANT help.

  23. Sam Adams says:

    Women’s criticism of pornography in jail is a “straw man;” the cold-blooded entities that installed Connecticut’s governor want to drive prisoners crazy enough to commit prison-rape. The powers that be use the public’s fear of rape in prison to force people to think twice whether or not to break the law. People who have power will do anything in the name of “the greater good.”

    1. Sam Adams isn't that dumb says:

      Pornography will encourage rape not discourage it. Do you have any sense? We don’t need prisoners horned up because they are looking at porn all day long.

  24. Stanley K says:

    Women should not be working in a men’s prison. Those who are stupid enough to do so deserve what they get.

    1. K STanley? says:

      Hum… So who’s stupid? The women working or the people hiring. I wouldn’t say that I’d be happy about my wife working at a mens prison, but if that’s the only job she could get, in these times, I’d support her.

  25. John Galt says:

    PRISONERS
    HAVE
    NO
    RIGHTS!
    They ceded all of them when they decided to break the law. Americans should not be put on the hook to make sure Bubba has something to look at when he does his business in his cell.

  26. joes says:

    Dont the female guards get to watch all the men take showers? why would they be offended by porn?

    1. Joes blow says:

      I think j a cking-off is a little different than showering. Maybe that just me.

  27. pyronaught says:

    Prisoners should not even have an opportunity to look at porn. They should be on a chain gang somewhere helping to offset the cost of housing their usless selves, then collapse at the end of the day in their cell after eating some gruel.

  28. CJSimones says:

    Why don’t the Occupy-Wall-Street nutbags add this to their list of grievances? It makes about as much sense as anything else those hygienically deprived silver-spooniacs are b1tching about.

    1. occupy this you commies says:

      I’m sure they already of this on their list of bizzaro demands. They are instantly discredited when you hear them speak. They are total idiots.

  29. Stefano says:

    Want to see porn, stay away from prison. Simple, no mamasita????

  30. JT says:

    Just have Big Bubba do all the inmates in the shower and they can have live porn.

  31. betty says:

    Why were they even allowed to see Porn. They should all be out digging diches. Prison life is too easy. Some are trying to get in to have a roof over their heads instead of earning a living.

  32. punishment not pleasure says:

    Ridiculous. In Conn it sounds like the inmates are running the prison. There should be absolutely no sexually explicit materials in prison. That will just get them aroused and encourage them to sexually assault other prisoners. This is prison after all – it is a punishment for committing serious crimes – not a place that is supposed to cater to your every desire. Do we want to make them into a bunch of porn-addicts or help them become productive members of society?

    And to try to make this about the first amendment just shows how ridiculous “free speech” jurisprudence has become. What are they planning to do? Wear the porn pictures on their clothes as some sort of “expression”? Our society is so pathetic. Put them on a chain gang and force them to work 16 hours a day. Then they won’t have time for porn. ACLU makes me want to vomit.

  33. Pounce Kitty says:

    Connecticut deserves all the liberal greedy hypocrisy that can be dished out. The liberals are the greediest people on earth and every CT citizen who votes for them should be taxed to the max! Pay for your liberal causes, you nitwits!

  38. Humpy J. Brown says:

    Prisoners???? F**k them and feed them fish heads.

  39. Al Tango says:

    Were these criminal fair to their victims? They deserve nothing more than food, water, clothing and a very small space to be locked up for the entire length of their sentence.

  40. Fanny Forbes Franklen says:

    And the porn must be translated in to 35 languages so it’s fair and equal.

    These S.O.B s are lucky I’m not in charge. Their only entertainment would be waterboarding.

    1. zzzzzzzz says:

      You are just as bad as the ones you hate.

  42. Texasbil says:

    Prisoners lose their rights when they are convicted of a crime. Main thing we need to do is go back to the chain gangs and put them to work and stop all this protesting.

  43. JGJ says:

    Females have no buisness working as guards in a male prison anyway. @ Joes, female guards are not allowed in areas where men would be undressed. Showers and medical. 4th amendment violation. Same goes for male guards in female prisons

  44. PJL. says:

    why not a trade off? the prisoners get to keep their porn ONLY if they are NEUTERED…

  45. fatticous says:

    What part of jail don’t these prisoners understand. You morons you broke the law you are there to be punished you idiots. You want porn do you time get out of jail then you can hang out out at the porn store if you want.

  46. PR says:

    It’s prison – not a paid vacation. Conditions should be harsher so they don’t want to go back after they get out. Can’t get your porn? Boo hoo.

    1. JeddMcHead says:

      No kidding! Prison should be about punishment, period.

  47. ab says:

    They did it in the military (no chicks painted on planes, no calendars in your locker, etc). So let’s see if they have the Balls to do it to prisoners.

  48. H. Johnson says:

    Prisoners as wards of the state have no “rights”. The taxpayers pay for food, clothing and housing to keep these criminals off the streets and they should receive no privileges at all. It’s prison, it’s not supposed to be “nice”. Given that +- 60% of these criminals will return to prison for repeat offenses we as a society have apparently made prison too easy. Since they are like to do it again…we might consider just killing violent offenders to save the hassle and expense of multiple trials and imprisonments. How’s that for “rights”?

  49. Bruce In Denver says:

    In the 1600s, if you committed an offense that required imprisonment, you were sentenced to “Gaol”. They gave you a shovel, and you had the rest of the day to dig yourself a “cell”, which was then covered with a grate that they weighted down. They fed and watered you through the holes in the grate, and you didn’t get out for any reason ’til your sentence was up. In the winter, there was no heat.

    Compared to that, our modern prisoners have no complaints, at all.

  50. Mike Alright says:

    Them poor, weak, defenseless US female prison employees, we must protect them poor things from everything. This is feminized America you know. They should not be offended in anyway. They deserve nothing but sparkles, rainbows and flowers.

  51. Machismo says:

    In Prison, Prisoners should only have the right to food, water, and paying their debt to society. John Q public should not have to fund addictions, or entertainment of any kind. The prisoners should have to work for it, and get limited use after anything given to them what is earned. Pornography or anything not legal should be banned. They lost their rights when they broke the law.

  52. udo says:

    Prisoners, just keep having gay sodomy and you won’t need the porn. I imagine it can be gross but you are in prison for a reason to treat that cell mates big brown eye like a vagina and forget the rear-end smell. Well unless you’re a gay inmate and the smell of butt is probably appealing but for the rest of you just plug your noses and poke away.

  53. dood says:

    Not fair. We have to make sure the rapists get their fill of porn.

  54. mot says:

    “To be fair I highly doubt, there are many real conservatives here. Most would fail the litmus test since they are pro-fascist, pro status quo neocon plutocrats.”

    First off, your comma should be after the word “fair”. Secondly, conservatives are pro-facist? explain that rubbish.

  55. USA says:

    liberal nut jobs are just that. nut jobs. all hype, when you confront them with actual facts, they get violent.

  56. katekody says:

    OMG…. their in prison…they have given up any rights they had when they decided to break the law. Their thugs…. no TV…no radio…no computers….no movies…no pictures of naked women ….sex books…no celll phones…no candy….nadda… get it.

  57. scramasax says:

    I always thought all inmates should have a TV in their cells set on one channel on perminantly ,24/7, showing reruns of “Full House”. At the end of their sentences they would be so brain dead they would be harmless to society.

  58. LTG says:

    Why so they even publish a story like this? Of course porn should be banned in prison as well as television. Radio should be allowed just so they can keep up on the news and culture of the day. Prisons are becoming hotels not places of correction and rehab!!!
