OHHHhhh- I confess- I "was" married to a Ca inmate once upon a time... I continued with my college courses and, I visited him EVERY WEEKEND for ten months (until I ended up in a car accident). I ate MAYBE two meals a day?? Meanwhile HE ate pizza, ice cream nevelties and KFC that the warden purchased with state funeds for "good behavior"?! WHAT?! GOOD BEHAVIOR?!! These sorry characters ALL suffer from "poor me syndrojme" -they have enough of it to share so, please, dont give them anymore than they already have!

Prisoners get meat and dessert? Why? I though prison was supposed to be an unpleasant experience so as to deter the inmates from ever wanting to return.

WOW I am beginning to think that the crime rate is high is ATL because people want to live off of Prison food!

Its almost a win-win for homeless/useless people...

If I commit a crime (mugging/stealing) and get away with it I get a bid wad of cash/stuff I can sell! If I get caught I get eggs and grits for breakfast. Yeah there is a downside to the Prison life... but hey it only hurts the first time (or so I have been told)

hmmm

Prisoners deal frequently with threats of violent beatings, rape, and the simple lack of freedom that dehumanizes in and of itself. Many are frequently found innocent post conviction (not including those that scape out on technicalities), and the justice system itself tends towards harsher sentences for people of color and the poor.

I find it hard to begrudge people two meals a day under those circumstances.

By the same logic, if you don't like that they seem to beat eating better than you, and it is entirely due to their choices, I submit you have not made the correct choices in life or you would obviously be better off. This system is entirely based on individual merit.

The tossed salad isn't actually served at dinner time, but some of the inmates have it during shower time.

Noooo you cannot talk bad about a GOP darling! No matter how things are screwed up... water... traffic.. spending... all that matters is who is in power. It doesnt matter if we are spending into oblivion and blame the Federal govt... it doesnt matter if the schools are ranked at the bottom of the country... what really matter is... gays shouldnt get married and Christ should be plugged into everything! That is all Georgia wants.

I got online today to get a story. My MIL called and said that my SIL who is in a georgia prison for robbing a 7-11, holding children hostage and stooting off a gun was upset because she only gets two meals a day and one roll of toilet paper. She wanted me to see if we could sign her up for Medicaid and food stamps. I am shocked. Like her daughter needs to be treated any better because she is in prison? The nerve. While my husband needs Medicaid and can't get it for colon cancer, she wants me to help her with my idiot SIL. WTF?

Maybe they learned from you you know most of the prison population is illiterate...I get so sick of hearing oh my baby got beat and my baby this...your baby is a monster and a OFFICER not guard would not risk their career by using unnecessary force..and im sure you babies were important enough to frame b/c the police just want your kids in prison ..maybe if you had done your job your not 1 but 2 kids would have been successful in life instead of inmates..

You are absolutely correct, which is the same way he did with his own finances. Every one knew it and he was still voted in. I guess like Romney, he's all they got.
