BET THE U.S. CANT GET AWAY WITH TREATING TERRORIST PRISONERS LIKE THEY DO OUR AMERICAN CITIZENS WHO COMMIT CRIMES!!!!!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT PICTURE!!??
i agree they are just tossed idle amongst violent and non-violent offenders with nothing to do all day,, where does the large chunk of money going that they get ?? not to reduce recidivism.. which is what the heck a correctional facilities main purpose,, only purpose, but how can that be done when there is soooo much more money to make by NOT HELPING THOSE WHO REALLY WANT HELP?? then they return and around goes the money circle,,and WE are the JERKS cuz we expect programs, and education, and such things to STOP THE PRISONERS FROM COMING BACK!!! but hell when some make more $$ on the inside then the outside?? why not keep returning?? lady justice is not just BLINDFOLDED!!!! SHE IS BLIND AT WESTVILLE CORRECTIONAL!!!!!
my son is in WASTEVILLE prison, and the conditions are deplorable,, the place is condemned, and the inmates run the place,, the guards are corrupt and so are the administrators,, i say we all band together and expose that place for what it really is,, and have it shut down for good!!! my son was beat severely with a lock and has multiple face and skull fractures.. i worry all the time when he tells me people wind up dead; and the guards joke about killing them!! what the hell is going on in that place?? Governor Pence is more concerned with womens menstrual cycles then what is going on in a facility that bears his name,, what a crook,, what a crock! he should be ashamed of himself and so should EVERY SINGLE PERSON WORKING THERE!! SHAME ON YOU!! GOD IS WATCHING!!!!!!! i know how high the corruption goes so i am not going to reveal.. but they know that like other CRIMINALS,, their time is ticking away!!!!!!! soon they will be looking out from the inside and isnt that IRONIC!!????
I'd like to see a prison where the prisoners are issued a suit, and dress shoes, etc. ..given full meals, and health care...given drug counseling if needed...(and not arrested for bullshit in the first place, including drug charges)...treat them like human beings and you'll not create monsters.
i totally agree with the prisoners because i was incarcerated at Wabash when Aramark first took on the contract with DOC and the food was very poor quality during its inception. Our complaints went unheard!!! Aramark are the biggest pimps besides the DOC. Aramark's contract should never be renewed!!!
The Northpoint, KY prison riot was propelled not only by the lousy food, but Aramark also controlled the canteen prices, the only alternative to their crappy food, and make it far more expensive than it should have been.
In addition, the state administration was corrupt. The governor was an indicted crook. He hired his Commissioner of Corrections directly from being a VP for Corrections Corporation of America and clearly was willing to screw both the inmates and the taxpayers, and to jeopardize the safety of corrections officers, by creating this volatile situation that prioritized the profits of the vendors over good correctional practice.
The inmates, having no other ability to express their concerns, in exasperation "voted with their matches." The resultant fires did about $11 million worth of damage. The apparent corruptive relationship obviously did an enormous amount of harm to the taxpayer, the DOC and the inmates when the rationale to use Aramark was supposedly to realize some cost savings, though in actuality there is little basis for making such claims.
Lastly, Aramark lobbyists have been involved in corruption, as close to Indiana as the neighboring state of Illinois where bribes were paid.
