I think this is truly funny, prison is ment to punish you, with things you dislike, not to serve you steak and red wine.

I don't think they want steak and red wine. I think they are tired of empty nutrient food that leaves them hungry even after they eat. These prisoners are treated like a horse an old woman owned. She feed the horse every afternoon taking one more grain out of the horses feed each day. Finally the horse died. She told a friend, "I was down to one grain of corn, if he had lived one more day i would have won!" Really, it goes much deeper then just the treatment of prisoners in KY. It seems that we have became a state of people that doesn't want to treat anyone humanely. The disabled, children, the ill, the homeless and those in jail. Every one seems to think everyone is out for something, and some are, but not every one. Until we can distinguish between the two for certain I believe we should be a bit more compassionate.
