Come on JP Tennison. Surely you can find better things to do with our money the spend it on "Scrubs" for inmates. These people have been sent to jail to serve time for crimes committed. The jail is not the Holiday Inn Express. It is bad enough that we tax payers have to provide this inmates with medicine while they are in jail. Now you want us to dress them nicer so their feeling won't be hurt. Give me a break! Somebody that lives in JP Tennisons area needs to run against him in the next election and get his taill out of there.
Speaking of the tax payers being required to provide meds to these people, whats up with that? How much does that cost us ever year? And do we get to recoup any of it in any way? Something isn't right with this!
