It's the kind of bastard move you get when they want to keep you the least dangerous they can manage. We are prisoners, after all.

At any rate, the thing exists because the bastard move doesn't work as well as it could. People are still plenty dangerous without weapons, and people still fight, so pretty much all their law enforcement consists of is breaking up fights so people don't kill each other in here.
