Why are prisoners allowed to watch sexually explicit and violent movies/TV show? Why are thy allowed to watch movies and TV to begin with?I actually know the answer to this one, and you're not going to like it. The answer has to do with government workers. Television is the best baby-sitter around. It is much easier to guard people who are basically content to watch TV than to guard people who are forced to do something, like read a book, which they don't want to do in the first place.I can't say I blame the prison officials for making this choice. Guards' lives are hell to begin with, and why should they be responsible for more than just maintaining peace?
