Kinda curious to why the inmates that clean up the roads are taken and bought food? They go out to eat and it's paid for. I'm wondering if it's paid with tax money. It also don't sound very safe to me. Take them back to the jail and eat then start back working

I just don't grasp the concept. These inmates might have a small crime and able to be a trustee, but has a trustee never ran or escaped? I do think it's good they have to work but I wouldn't take them to a public place to eat. It's just to risky.

They're in jail for a reason. They're put in jail for committing crimes. When they go to jail they lose their freedom for however long the court decides. There's people in the real world, who don't commit crimes and work everyday that can't even afford to eat out. So they're taking the working mans money to reward inmates? Can you say crooked?

These prisoners don't have to be out there you know.I think it's pretty nice of them to go out there and pick up the trash that other people throw out their windows because they are to lazy to put it in a trash can. The prisoners could sit out their time in a cell but they chose to go out and clean up the roads. So if they get a special treat by eating out somewhere I say so be it.

How do you know that the taxpayers are paying for them to eat out? And maybe if people like you did'nt throw their trash out the window then they would'nt have to be out there picking up your trash. These people don't have to do this and I for one very much appreciate it.The jail does have a food budget so what if it includes a meal out. Besides how do you know that they are'nt spending their own money? After all families do put money in there for some of them.

I Know, you don't know as much as you think you do.It is put on the tax payers dime.And where does the money come from for there food budget,the tax payers.And the money that people put down at the jail can only be used for buying things from the jail,like snacks and so on.no inmate can carry money on them.and as far as me throwing trash out of my car window it doesn't happen.I bet your one of those people that drive around with trash all in there floorboards,and throw out a couple pieces every now and then.

Taxpayers pay for them to sit in jail. So yea they should have to pick up trash and work. But the luxury of eating outside the jail shouldn't be there!

They're all good people, just as good as you and I. They've simply run into some bad circumstances in their lives. They deserve to get a restaurant meal in return for all of the good work they're doing in keeping our county clean and litter free. How can you judgmental people be so heartless?

Get a grip, nobody made them commit crimes, especially enough that they are finally serving time. That's exactly what is wrong with our society, no personal responsibility! I've had to take pain medication and I didn't misuse it nor am I in jail.

I have compassion and think those who wish to be helped should be given help. It is also true that actions have consequences and debts must be paid. I appreciate the fact that Jones has these men and women out cleaning the roadways as well as helping many other groups on need. Along those lines, if Jones thinks its appropriate to feed them outside the jail who am I to argue since I don't possess all the facts he weighs into his decisions.

if the inmates work at the J Ville park the city of J Ville pays for their dinner. if they are picking up trash on the roads i don't know who pays. i personally think it's a small price to pay for trash pick up. they don't haft to work if they don't want to. it's volunteer thing. it's one of the good things that the county does.

Gotcha! Some of you people are so gullible. I'm in favor of prison reform. Make the stay of those who break the laws of our country anything but a comfortable stay in a country Bed and Breakfast. As for the prisoners referred to in his particular thread, I think you should feed them sandwiches and water when they're out on the road. It's good that they're doing something to help pay for the tremendous burden they're placing on taxpayers and society, but I don't think we should be introducing them to the various fine dining establishments around the county as if they were returning war heroes. I have no pity for them. They made the bed in which they now lay and it looks good on them. Our prisons were at one time meant as punishment for people who refused to conform to society's rules. Now it seems they're looked at as kind and comfortable rehabilitation stations for those helpless innocent lambs who've been dragged, kicking and screaming, into a life of crime and unproductive living. These people are already living off the labor of the law abiding citizens who get out of bed and go to work every day and that's more than they deserve.
