I bet they can find some lawyer to sue the state for some illogical failure to ensure that their home brew was being made under proper sanitary conditions.

Some on other comments would probably suggest they got the brew from Provo on a Sunday...

How could anyone want to drink something made with those spoiled ingredients? They probably were bored and in need of work to do.

Perhaps the prison officers should do a better job of inspecting the cells to make sure these things don't happen. Just a thought. What do you think?

And now we, the taxpayers, will have to bear the medical cost of this stupitidy.

Prison guards are constantly looking for illegal behavior. Unfortunately the criminals behind bars have 24/7 to think up misbehavior.

Guards do have Karma working in their favor. What better punishment for making illegal brew than a healthy dose of botulism!!


Not to overstate the obvious...but just how do inmates distill homemade brew in their prison cell and go unnoticed? This one made me laugh outloud!

I guess I'm a heartless person because my main concern is just how much of my tax money is going to be used for them to get over their little Tummy Aches.

The term I always heard for this kind of stuff was "wrought gut". I guess people still have a desire or addiction for it as in the days of prohibition.
