Good for the recycling effort, though I'm curious why we have to pay for the use of inmates.

Because the inmates are the guests of the county, not the city.

Still doesn't make sense to me. What are the costs involved? 1.Transportation. 2.Inmate pay. (can it be that much?) Don't even want to get into why we PAY inmates.
Anyway, just curious.

Wow, I haven't seen Danny Winn since the Earthlings broke up a few years ago. He's still rocking that earthling sound, though the jingle is missing some of the lighthearted humor that made me fall in love with DWatE. Still, at 0:07 you see a rare shot of Danny without a hat.

They probably have better medical benefits than I do.

Shit like this just kills me. Why don't you get yourself incarcerated and see if you enjoy the medical benefits?

And Stephanie, the reason inmates are paid, however little, is because making people work without pay is called slavery.

work without pay is called slavery.

By definition. But, since they are wards of the state, it's debatable. But, like I said, I didn't really want to get into that. I'm just curious where the $300,000 that we don't have is going. Not that knowing would make any difference.

OBTS - I invite you to record your statements sometime and replay them so you can hear how asinine they are.

Nice insult. Here's your mistake with your uninformed statement: the word "probably." You don't have any clue what kind of medical treatment prisoners receive, do you? I would invite you to visit any jail in this state and discover for yourself exactly what kind of "quality" healthcare inmates get there. Contrary to popular belief, it is not fabulous. It is basic medical care. BASIC. If they are taken to hospital, they are BILLED for the treatment they receive at the hospital. They are also often billed for medications they receive in jail or even treatment they receive in jail.

I am not asinine, Gino. I am informed.

A friendly moderator intervention; OBTS and g.Tortuga, you are both bringing the insults on a little strong in this thread. Calling someone's statement asinine=not cool. Calling what someone wrote shit=not cool. Simmer down folks, we're just trying to have a nice, civil conversation. The DCF moderation policy if you're ever in doubt about a comment.
