OMG.......what happened to the bible where it says..when i was hungry you fed me, when i was naked you clothed me...etc....is one mistake in someone's life enough to curse them to hell for life? have any of you ever made mistakes, how do you know if they may be in there for something as simple as a speeding ticket,or forgetting to renew their tag....stop judging others, and start helping...IT YOU ARE NOT PART OF THE SOLUTION...THEN YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM.
THE BIBLE ALSO SAY AN EYE FOR AN EYE, IF YOUR KIDS WERE RAPED OR MOLESTED OR MURDERD BY ONE OF THEASE THUGS WOULD YOU STILL BE SAYING THE SAME THING. I FIND IT HARD TO BELIEVE THAT ANYBODY IS OK WITH PAYING 48,000 DOLLARS A YEAR TO HOUSE AND FEED SOMBODY WHO IS NOT A PRODUCTIVE MEMBER OF SOCITY AND THEN THEY COMPLAIN WHEN THEY WERE ONE WHO ARE NOT FOLOWING THE RULES IN PRISON. I AGREE WITH THE OTHER PERSON IN THE FORUM WHEN THEY STATED LETS MAKE PRISON SO HORRIBLE THAT THEY WOULD NEVER THINK OF COMMITTING A CRIME AGAIN.

IF THE INMATES CAN NOT ACT RIGHT IN JAIL THEN THEY GET WHAT FOOD IS PUT IN FRONT OF THEM. IF THEY FOLLOW THE RULES OUTSIDE THE JAIL THEN THEY WOULD NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT WOULD THEY!?

They should have their rights taken away when in prison, feed them enough to keep them alive, no TV, no freedoms, make them grow their own food and raise cattle for the meat. Put them on chain gangs and make them work, that would save the taxpayers money for the criminals to be cleaning up trash and cutting the grass on state roads and interstates.

Once they do get out most want to return after seeing the difficulty to making a living. Why is that? It might be becuase they are coddled while in there.

And this made it all the way to the supreme court? Wow...slow judgement day in Vermont?

How about a s*it sandwich with your choice of piss and/or vinegar? What's next...you want a sleep number bed?

Being that our tax dollars are paying for your comfortable stay, I say I get to pick what you eat on what you sleep on...keep bit*hing about that and I'll pick who gets to sleep with you, too. COME HERE BUBBA!

Which is it? Am I a "moron" or am I a "high standing intellect"? I vote for me being an "intellect" and you being retarded. Or is it just that you're actually as stupid as your posts make you seem so that you can't even discern when you've yet again directly contradicted yourself.
Do you know how hard it would be for any person with even the slightest bit of education (or self respect) to manufacture as many self-immolating posts with such a limited vocabulary in such short and yet meandering posts? What you do isn't easy. You have a gift for unconscious self-depreciation and your complete disregard for the application of logic to a single thought is admirable in it's unwavering consistency.
I'll give you a break when you stop being a complete idiot. You go first.

THIS IS SOO HALLARIOUS!

I used to work for a contractor in the food service business inside Polk Correctional, here in FL, and I watched over the inmates that made all the food for 3 meals a day for 1200 inmates, and the loafs and the bag lunches. They were feed better than 50% of people on the outside of the gates, and all I have to say is they choose to commit some kind of crime. Menus are posted weekly and there are alternative meals. Talk to any inmate they will tell you about the "loaf" regardless if they have had it, they all know what it is and why they would get one!

Bread and water is all they should be fed. Why would someone feel bad for them they are criminals

It's prison, not summer camp. Don't like the food? Good, maybe you won't come back.
