    Soup for Shots

    In Washington state, the prison system is getting creative in order to boost vaccination rates.

    Noting that ramen noodles are a hot commodity and a form of prison currency, the wardens are offering 10 free packets of ramen if an inmate will get the Covid jab.

    Inmates are going for it. Ten "soups" can be exchanged for a lot of valuable stuff in prison.

    Sad.
    Democracy ends in the tyranny of the 51%
    over the 49%. A bad system of governance.

    The beef flavored ones will be worth more than the chicken flavored ones.

    And inmates will be "cutting" their packs with used dental floss and stuff.


    Stop the vaccine mandates. Use facts about constitutional freedoms. The 1905 SCOTUS ruling is obsolete. New technologies can provide for public safety AND protect the constitutional freedoms of those who refuse the vax. Use of easily disproven fearmongering antivax porn will kill our chances to stop the mandates.

    Some clarification - the title says it is Washington State Prison, but the article only mentions Benton County Department of Corrections.

    So, this taking place at the county jail in one small Washington county.

    Now, I don't know how Benton County runs its jail, but usually inmates who are total screwups or who need protection are put in a special housing unit. They don't have access to the commisary.

    Will they still be able to get soup for the shot?

    Here is a Seattle Times article that says as of August 21, the jail in Kennewick had given out 900 packs of ramen to 90 inmates.

    Washington State was also handing out free bags of marijuana to those who got vaccinated. (The "Joints for Jabs" program)

    Guess prisoners are not so lucky to be eligible for that. Guess they will have to content themselves with ramen noodles.
