Prisoners at His Majesty Prison sign petition requesting better conditions


At least 164 inmates at His Majesty’s Prison (HMS) have signed a petition, citing their lack of access to basic necessities such as healthy food, drinkable water, clean living conditions without the presence of pests and modern and functional bathroom facilities.

They also spoke out on the lack of proper medical care and the treatment they receive from medical staff as well as from the superintendent and other workers at HMS.

They demanded that if the prison is not willing to feed them properly that they at least be given their cooking implements back and for officers to stop turning away food brought by their family members.

  1. instead of punishing them behind bars, give them some of the whopping the young fella said his UPP teacher Jonathan Joseph gave him. messed up his posture, lingering pain etc etc

  2. And whilst we’re here, I would also like all the information released on the criminal activities of the 164 prisoners who’ve signed the petition, so that their victims are supported in a likewise manner.

    What percentage of these prisoners have committed murder?

    What percentage has committed rape?

    And not forgetting the percentage that have been locked up for violent acts that have not only left their victims traumatised, but also permanently injured as well.

    And these guys ah worry ’bout food and conditions. Tarl!


  3. With better conditions, they might love it in there so much that you won’t be able to get them out of jail.

    • You LILY LIVERED WET LETTUCE 🥬 @ From The Sideline! How you mean “with better living conditions …”

      Then put all the 164 prisoner dem up in a your yard, so dem comfy, warm, dry and nice boss!

      Show some EMPATHY for the victims of these convicted criminals …
