    too much time to complain

    Hi

    A certain warden of prison says that billy clubs help them to keep order in prison and adds:
    Prisoners have far too much time to complain about trivial things.

    Does it mean prisoners have too much time and that's why they start to complain about trivial things?

    Yes. If they were kept busy, they wouldn't have time to think of trivial things to complain about.
