If an inmate frequently bangs on the bars of his jail cell and keeps asking the warden to be released early, what would you expect the warden's reaction to be?

Now, what if the warden is an admin, and the inmate someone who's forum banned?

Well, honestly, mercy would be nice :)

But thats just me. The warden would probably ask him to stop, and if he didn't, would run into that inmates cell at midnight with his nightstick and some friends.

But like I said, I a merciful kind of guy and would hope the inmate would be too. At least give the poor guy probation =D

He'd turn the hoses on him .

transfer him to supermax?

Miandrital October 7 2006 4:44 PM EDT

Naw, supermax is too expensive. Time to fire up ole' sparky!

Were I the warden, I'd probably toss him into the showers and tell another inmate to repeatedly knock the soap from his hands.

But then, I'm a mean warden...

Put him into an isolation chamber with a straight jacket and deprive him of food and water. Sure, he'll come out completely mad, but it's for the greater good, right?

Godpanda October 7 2006 4:48 PM EDT

Bunch of big meanies!!!

The warden would probably just ignore the prisoner's protests. And I'd expect the ire of the warden to continue to rise...

SOLITARY CONFINMENT!!!!


but im just a bunghole

Prozac dude!

PirateKing October 7 2006 5:57 PM EDT

Wait a minute. Isn't a prison warden supposed to keep the inmate on the inside?

As much as "customer service" goes that needed to be disposed of long ago.
If I was constantly asked after repeatedly saying no then I would in basically say "No, you were forum banned for a reason, leave it or risk fines for wasting an admins time" or something to the extent, if someone who was forum banned had been on good behaviour on the other hand and asked nicely once after an already lengthy time I may have been more considerate.

It's your decision although I'd go for the threatening approach rather than the niceties if it has been excessive :P

Do you have any intention of releasing him at all? If not, then his pleas are justified.

AdminG Beee October 7 2006 7:30 PM EDT

Well it's obvious:

If it were a US prison he would be executed after a further 15 years of banging on his cell bars.

If it were a UK prison he'd be deported to the US.

If it were a French prison he'd be released because if you complain loud enough you always get what you want.

If it were a Scandanavian prison he'd open the door and leave because the wardens prolly forgot to lock it after his last conjugal visit and before they all went to the sauna.

And if it were a Dutch prison the wardens wouldn't care because they'd spent all afternoon in a coffeeshop and there's always tomorrow to deal with it :)

For the dutch jail I would go with that he probably had enough hash brownies for lunch to chew through the bars, or so he thought :D

deifeln October 7 2006 10:50 PM EDT

/me would then add a CM ban to his forum ban...problem solved :o)
