Alabama Sheriffs Filled Their Wallets By Starving Prisoners

Alabama law lets sheriffs keep whatever doesn't get spent on food from their jail food funds. Now 49 of those sheriffs are refusing to disclose how much of that money made it to detainees' plates, and how much landed in their own pockets.

$1.75 a DAY to feed grown adults. That isn't even enough, let alone let the sheriff keep the extra money left over from the food budget. Left over! From a $1.75 a Day, not even a meal, a day!

I've read other articles where prisoners are going hungry and begging their already hurting families for some extra food money. The people already lost a family members income and now with the letters of I'm hungry must pinch out some more money from what they are trying to exist on.

This Nation has no place to call itself "exceptional"........unless used along with the word cruel, exceptionally cruel.
