Prisoner Humiliation in the Bahamas

Humiliating prisoners is still regarded as a form of punishment in the Bahamas.  As a result, prisoners still wear the cartoonish prisoner uniform and they are trotted out publicly at regular intervals.  You can see them washing the police cars and private vehicles of police and prison officials.

In this particular case, the dude on the left was an ex-prisoner that wrote a book on going the straight and narrow.  A bunch of prisoners were trotted out in a publicity exercise where he donated some of his books to the Fox Hill prisoners.  I don't think that one should have access to prisoners for publicity purposes.
