“The point of being in jail is not to mistreat people or make them feel worse and resentful,” —Marion Damick
No, the point of jail to keep criminals off the streets.
But they shouldn’t be better off in jail…
The County Jail Oversight Board recently approved the purchase of 40 Sony Bravia televisions for viewing in the jail common areas.
If a judge sentenced you to the Allegheny County Jail, you’d be provided three hot meals and a bed to sleep in, but in common areas, you’d also be able to watch cable shows on 42-inch Sony flat screens.
Anyone else see the problem here?
