Absolutely correct! I worked there and saw the garbage that was given to the inmates. It was not fit for human consumption. Especially the inmates on special diets like the diabetics. The meals were mainly carbohydrates, bread, pasta and green peas. I also saw bugs in the food too. It was horrible. The meat was unrecognizable. For example, when they're on lockdown. They give them this kind of green bologna. The inmates really have only two choices, eat it or starve. If they're lucky, they have commissary or quarterly food packages. I hope something is done about this situation. I know that they're inmates but they're also human beings. May God forgive us all!!!!

Trust it's like that in most jails. I really believe they sweep the floor and dump trash in the food and serve it.

This prison is not following guidelines by no means, it is insane heard last weekend they took a man pushed him against fence then made him strip for all the dorms can see and then pushed him against it over and over till they could get him to react so he turned and had his elbow up and officers picked him up and threw him to ground, Then did a BODY SLAM then pursued to kick him then tied his feet together and punched him and to make him fall so they can kick him more and more to hop all the way back inside due to location everyone witness this. Do you think you would like it if this was your relative because they call themselves officers they have to the right to punsh anyone this way.
The fact is they are not getting a proper diet and
their hormones and brain can not function under these circumstances for this long of period.
The OFFICERS NEED TO BE LOCKED UP FED BREAD A BOLOGNA FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS. They are more crooked then the prisoners. My nephew is serving a 18 year sentence for a crime that should have been max 2 years he was 18 and not mature and no guidence from his father and Mother who had to work so he got with wrong crowd, and did some dumb things not killing or raping. He stole but not hurting anyone first charge, then released his relative talked him to going to a dealers house and he didnot have a gun but relative fled he picked it up on the way out and boom polcie got him w c\gun on probation 18 years. THis place is not for his level and it just makes prisoners worse when they have to think of ways to eat and stay there to kepp from getting killed by annother inmate gone insane.
