ESL 323: Food as Punishment


ESL 323: Food as Punishment


Download


A food called "nutraloaf" has been used for many years in US prisons. But prisoners claim that it tastes so bad that the food is actually punishment. They say that prison officials must charge the prisoner with some type of violation before they can punish him by making him eat nutraloaf. At least one prisoner has filed a lawsuit against the use of nutraloaf. Prison officials say the prisoners are overreacting. They say that nutraloaf is a nutritious food. "It's just like fruitcake," said one warden. Nutraloaf is a mixture of bread, cheese, raw and cooked vegetables, beans, and other ingredients which may vary from season to season and prison to prison.

Prison officials say that using nutraloaf, a "hand" food, increases prison safety, because prisoners don't have utensils or plates to throw at or use against guards or other prisoners. Officials routinely distribute nutraloaf for days at a time when one or more prisoners act unruly.

"What are they complaining about? I wish I could have had nutraloaf when I was growing up," said Bob Hope, a prison warden in Arkansas. "It tastes a lot better than the grits and corn bread I ate every day. These guys have a lot of nerve to complain. I've eaten it myself many times—I just pop it into the microwave for a minute, spread a little butter on it, and enjoy. What's their beef? Prisoners are a bunch of whiners. If they want five-star prison food, they should commit their crimes in France."

Thức ăn như trừng phạt

Thực phẩm tên "nutraloaf" đã được dùng nhiều năm trong nhà tù Mỹ. Nhưng tù nhân nói là chúng dỡ đến mức thực phẩm đó thật ra là hình phạt. Họ nói là các nhân viên nhà tù phải phạt tù nhân với vài loại vi phạm trước khi họ có thể phạt anh ta bằng cách bắt anh ta ăn nutraloaf (bánh mì dinh dưỡng). Ít nhất một tù nhân đã kiện lại việc cho ăn nutraloaf. Nhân viên cai tù nói các tù nhân đã hành động quá mức. Họ nói nutraloaf là một hỗn hợp bánh mì, pô mai, và rau quả sống hay đã chín, đậu và những nguyên liệu khác có thể thay đổi theo mùa và tuỳ theo nhà tù.

Cai tù nói dùng nutraloaf, một thực phẩm "cầm tay", làm tăng độ an toàn của nhà tù, vì các tù nhân không có dụng cụ hay dĩa để ném vào nhau hay chống lại các bảo vệ hay các tù nhân khác. Nhân viên thường phân phát nutraloaf vào những ngày và lúc khi một hay nhiều tù nhân quậy phá.

"Họ than phiền cái gì chứ? Tôi ước tôi được ăn nutraloaf khi tôi đang lớn," Bob Hope, một trưởng trại tù ở Arkansas nói. "Nó ngon hơn bánh mì lúa mạch và bắp mà tôi đã ăn hàng ngày. Những tên này thần kinh mới than phiền. Tôi đã ăn nó mấy lần-Tôi chỉ hâm nó trong lò vi sóng một phút, phết ít bơ lên, và tận hưởng. Thịt bò của họ là cái gì? Tù nhân là một đám cỏ. Nếu chúng muốn thức ăn tù-năm sao, chúng nên phạm tội ở Pháp."
