Breaking rocks in the hot sun

BBC NEWS | UK | Offender uniform plans dismissed

Home Office plans to make young offenders wear uniforms while they carry out community service orders have been condemned as a "nasty gimmick".
Probation officers said naming and shaming offenders was counterproductive and would lead to more re-offending.
Rights group Liberty said the plans would only degrade those involved....

Ahh Diddums - Me, I'm on the side of Dragline..
"Boy, you're new meat. You're gonna have to shape up fast and hard for this gang. We got rules here....

Anyway I thought they all wore a uniform already; white trainers, jeans, hoody and a Burberry hat....

Lyrics and Chords

Breaking rocks in the hot sun
I fought the law and the law won (2x)
I needed money 'cause I had none / I fought...

/ G - C G / / G - D7 G / :

I left my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
Well she's the best girl that I ever had
I fought...

/ C - - - / G - - - / C - - - / G - C G / G - D7 G /

Robbing people with a six gun / I fought...
I miss my baby and good fun / I fought...


What we've got here is failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach, so you get what we had here last week which is the way he wants it. Well, he gets it. And I don't like it any more than you men.

Our guys gotta wear an orange jumpsuit, so they don't get run over by a car while they're picking up roadside trash. Guantanamo Bay that, sucker! But they could throw a Koran down the porta-pot, since there's no flushing mechanism to prevent it...it's probably where they hide the drugs anyhow.

I'd support just about any mesure to shame these bastard that'ee could name, however, that is a problem. They cannot be shamed because they havn't any. Forget jumpsuits, put 'em in chains.

Yet another example of the mamby-pamby psycho-babblers complaining that you can't degrade criminals. Bugger them (not literally although it would probably stop them reoffending), if they break the law everyone should know about it. Make them dress up in clown outfits, chain them together and make them do some serious hard graft.
