Not sure if this is a smart move. They have just turned toilet paper into currency. So now, inmates will be butt-raping over toilet paper, and trading cigarettes for toilet paper.

Not only will the county save money by rationing the TP, but since the inmates won't be able to properly clean their heinies there will be fewer jail rapes. So, it's a win-win!

Whoever would suggest such a stupid way of cutting costs must have their own head up their ass.
If they think the toilets are getting clogged a lot with toilet paper, just wait until the newspaper, writing paper and prison issue socks start filling in the gap of not having toilet paper, or purging the gap, depending on how you look at it.

Maybe they should let the prisoners share and give away the food they don't eat or bring that apple back to their bunk to eat later rather than wasting it by throwing it in the trash because they couldn't choke it down in the thirty seconds they have to eat their chow.
There's plenty of waste in prison and jails, but it isn't toilet paper I can assure you.
The pampering of the guards who work in the prison is something they need to address. If a jail has 4000 inmates and 300 guards, I can assure you that more is spent to feed those 300 guards than the inmates.

At the inflated prices that prisoners are required to pay for commissary items and to make phone calls and the work many of these prisoners do working fire crews and other intense labor jobs, these prisons should be at the very least, self serving if not turning a profit.
Anyone who believes that prisoners just sit in their cell and receive food, television and medical supplies while doing nothing all day, are highly mistaken.
The waste isn't coming from the inmates I can assure you. Inmates are some of the most resourceful individuals on the planet.
The waste is coming from the freedom side of the bars.

Rationing toilet paper, what a freeking joke!

The president of the union that represents Montgomery County government employees has given council members a six-page memo of recommended budget cuts suggested by some of the workers.

The recommendations include limiting inmates to two or three rolls of toilet paper a week. Union officials say inmates often deliberately clog toilets to cause problems at detention centers, wasting taxpayer money on both the toilet paper and the cost of fixing toilets.

The director of Montgomery County's department of corrections says he doesn't find the use of toilet paper excessive

Sounds like the guards are just trying to be mean.

You think that 2 or 3 rolls of TP a week is NOT enough? How can that not be enough? Oh no, the guards are being mean again. They better hope that Hope Steffey doesnÂ’t go to that jail because we all know how the evil guards mistreat poor sweet and innocent Hope Steffey. Just like the evil ogre guards are mistreating these poor misunderstood inmates. Boo-hoo-hoo.

Does toilet paper come from oil or rice paper?

That is a sticky situation.

I hear they don't need toilet paper. Prisoners save their BM's until they harden and then throw them at guards, enemies, etc.

2 to 3 rolls a week is not that bad. I have a house hold of 4 (3 girls) and we go through like 5 rolls a week. So I believe GROWN men can do with 2 to 3 rolls a week. I mean do you really have to have that much to wipe your Butts with? Come on now.

Your right hand's for eating with.

Your left hand's for whipping your ass.

That's in the Koran!
