These comments are cracking me up because those who feel Pontiac should close, or that the guards are overpaid babysitters, obviously have a grudge of some kind....and I see NO REAL judges here.

If you truly were a "judge" you would know it is contraband...not counterband. And I see so many other wrong words and misspellings that I have to wonder if you even have a GED.

My husband works at PCC and he does NOT eat the food. He was coming home sick every day. He now takes his own and NEVER eats in the OK and miraculously hasn't been sick since. And they do pay for their food....by way of not getting paid for their meal time...which means they are paying a LOT more than the inmates.

And as far as the intelligence of officers...they had to pass a test to even go to the academy. Also you call them dumb yet overpaid....sounds pretty intelligent to me to have a job where you can sleep for 8 hours, eat for free, and get paid a big salary...maybe you should try it.
