Recycled undies?

(NewsCore) - Prisons in Washington are issuing inmates with used uniforms, recycled underwear and shorter socks in an effort to cut costs http://www.myfoxny.com/dpps/news/offbeat/prisons-cut-costs-with-recycled-underwear-dpgonc-km-20101211_11040304

This is a good thing.Used undies for prisoners..Why should we tax payers pay for them to sport brand new clothing? I frequent thrift stores myself..although undies is where I draw the line..I won't wear used undies lol..Would you?

  • I didn't know prisoners got new underwear in the first place! Why the hell should they.

  • I'm thankful that I don't have to; but then I obey the law. I think anything to cut costs for prisoners is a good idea. I also like that one prison is having them make their own toilet paper, and it's working out so well they may be making it to sell to other prisons.

  • No, not normally. But I guess if I ever go to prison I will have to.


     They are in prison they do not deserve new stuff.

  • IDK, I'm a pretty conservative person when it comes to this kind of stuff, but used undies? I mean, why give them undies at all? LOL. I would rather wear nothing than wear used undies. Bleahhhhhhhhhhhhh.

  • I wouldn't personally, but prisoners should't be given a choice.

  • I do go to thrift stores. Never used undies or even shoes though. I think they should just go without. I'm sure most of them do if it has came down to this anyway. I know I would.
