    The phone an canteen an jail or run as a money making corp, everything is over prized by 3/4 times the norm on the outside, too make there inmate feel An or not able to get things from toothpaste to underware , which runs 8 dalors a pair, a 6 pack of Hanes would be cheaper, phone costs to family members is beyond cost that make it a hardship to them, if they would like there children talk to there dads etc, we are the only country that treats there inmates so poorly an feed them food you would give your dog!!! An nutrition values at the baseline of just over by tenths of unhealthy based on a 1-10 scale. The bottom line is how much the corps that run the jails today can milk out of the state, family, an inmates. It's all about the botterm line, but if one could see what the staff makes we would find out how over paid they are, but more in mass, state an locals make more on details then there regular pay, for the year, one of the feel states that could cut costs using flag people as most states today use, one thing is there is no place where inmates can go to read books on law, how to better them selfs for a job when jail ends etc. the big part is that many have to sleep in what would be called a Jim in a school where the number runs about 100/120 per arealike it was said ealyer corps bottem line , which we can thank gov weld for Privatisation of many of the institutions and pride jacks in Massachusetts especially, we were led to believe they would be cheaper but a real reality is just so that they are political crony friends can make more money, there is no such thing as rehabilitation today by helping AEO me find a new location or job when he gets out only how cheap were they able to houses Burson Weather 30 days -three- six months whatever the date time is so the corporations can make as much art that one person as possible, here and how much they can pull off of the family's money
