California lawmakers to allow condoms in prisons
August 24, 2006

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.

The bill now goes to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has not yet taken a position on it, according to his office.

California has the largest corrections system in the United States, with 162,000 mostly male inmates. Supporters say condoms are needed to stop the spread of HIV and AIDS among inmates and protect sexual partners of released prisoners.

The bill's author, Assemblyman Paul Koretz, said the HIV rate in state prisons is estimated to be eight times greater than among the general population of Los Angeles County.

any type of homosexual activity in prisons should be dealt with in some way, and a death penalty should be automatically given for someone who rapes.

What "other way" do you propose? There are only so many gaurds Streets. And since preventing all homosexual activity in prison is unfeasable I feel the condoms are a good idea. After all many of these men are in the closet and end up bringing diseases home to loved ones upon release.

Legislature sends prison condom bill to Schwarzenegger

Legislature sends prison condom bill to Schwarzenegger

Friday, August 25, 2006


(08-25) 16:15 PDT SACRAMENTO, (AP) --


Public health agencies and nonprofits would begin distributing condoms to California prison inmates under a bill sent this week to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, a measure modeled after similar programs in other states and cities.


Democrats who support the effort said making condoms available will help control the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.


"Everyone knows that sex happens in prison, and short of solitary confinement for all ... inmates, the state is unable to prevent it," Assemblyman Paul Koretz, D-West Hollywood, said in a statement.


Various studies put the incidence of homosexual activity inside prisons at between 30 percent and 60 percent of male inmates, while the rate of HIV infection is at least five times that of the outside population, Koretz said.


Critics say the spread of sexual diseases could be prevented by enforcing state law, which bans sex between inmates. Republicans who oppose the bill said distributing condoms in prisons will only encourage sex between male inmates.


Sen. Charles Poochigian, R-Fresno, said the bill "sends entirely the wrong message."


"Prisons are to punish criminals. They shouldn't be sanctioning activities that are illicit," said Poochigian, who is running for state attorney general.


Instead, Poochigian said state prisons should clamp down on prison gang activity, which encourages sexual acts between inmates.


The bill's opponents also said inmates could use condoms as weapons or as devices to hide illegal drugs.


California prisons have an average of 1,240 inmates infected with HIV/AIDS, costing the department more than $18 million a year in health care, according 2003-2004 data provided by the state Department of Corrections.


Condoms are available in prisons in Vermont and Mississippi, as well as in jails in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia and the District of Columbia, according to research by Koretz's office.


Australia, Canada, most of the European Union and parts of Latin America also allow condoms to be distributed in prison, according to the Koretz research, which was compiled from AIDS foundations and academic studies.


The Senate approved the bill Thursday 22-16 along party lines.


A Schwarzenegger spokesman said the governor had not taken a position on the bill.

Another transparent attempt to promote homosexuality. By providing condoms, they're saying, "It's okay to be a fag, just be safe about it". They know DAMN well, that once people start that type of behavior and become desensitized to the disgusing act itself, it won't be long before the toss the condoms to the side and go for it raw. VOILA!!! More HIV cases in prison, more disease brought back to the black community, and more DEAD black people!!!

The sad thing is, we fall for this type of shit every time. It's like somebody wants to kill you, but they're scared to go to jail. So they trick your dumb ass into putting the gun to your head and pulling the trigger your damn self!!!

Nastiness. They don't need condoms, Inmates who did not participate in violent activities should be allowed one hour out of the week to go get laid. Cuz that shit is just harsh, depriving a nigga like that... I'd end up killing myself. The Prison system is one of the reasons America has such a large gay population...

What CO's are saying about this.......

"The bill would specify that possession of one of those devices shall not be used as evidence of illegal activity for purposes of administrative sanctions. So I guess when we find them up their bung hole full of dope we can't charge them? Smells like crap to me! Thanks Rudy, you for one ought to know better."

"can you imagine the weapons they can build now for assault towards staff. Before they would use elastic from their chonies to make the guns and spears. Hell now they will be given them. Oh and the plumbers thought they had alot of calls now.All I have to say is I will take em everytime I see them. "What Condom?? I did not see any Condoms in your house""



"This flies right in the face of the Prison Rape Elimination Act. Now the predators can rape at will without the fear of AIDS."

"How will the used condoms be treated when found? Will they be considered a biohazard? Do we lock them up in the evidence locker pending DNA testing because they were thrown into a common area which creates a slipping and disease hazard? Makes me want to VOMIT. ISU will have their hands full now. Will we have to scrub the floor, wall, or ceiling where the item was found? Do we treat it as a crime scene? As Mark D mentioned before, what proof will there be now in alleged prison rapes? Also, as Bruiserdog mentioned in part, those poor plumbers. Makes me want to VOMIT."

"What the hell....the MTA's may be passing out Viagra pretty soon for the not so HARD criminal.... Lets all make sure we wear our latex gloves now while doing our cell searches. And better look before you stick your hand somewhere you can't quite see.

And I thought it was illegal for inmates to have sexual contact with each other. Lets thank the liberals for appeasing the criminals rather than fight crime...... Maybe giving them condoms will help in their REHABILITATION."




"Will this spell the end of the "sock babies" hiding under the mattress.

For you new guards comming out of the academy, use gloves if you insist on searching wadded up socks lurking under an inmates mattress."

yeah well... too bad so many mental illnesses are treated as criminal behavior

alcoholism and addiction are treated with prison terms in a society that has given up on any sort of spiritual solution.
because that prop 36 joke is just a free pass without much affect on changing lives
' then the sickos and desperados take some sort of pleasure on tormenting so called weaker individuals..and let's not forget the sadistical COs who are only doing their job...

lots of people earn their way into prison without any effort while others fight their way in tooth and nail as if it were a freakin pleasure palace or something, I dont know.

condoms in prison is a sick joke. cuz it puts out two very twisted messages

1. Homos get to have fun in prison
2. Rapists are priviledged to not catch diseases while still being criminal in the joint.

I wonder what Arnie had in mind... what IS his real agenda there?
you decide.
