In Mexico, they don't feed you. Your relatives and friends have to bear the burden.

Why do you think they spend so much? Sounds like a waste of taxpayers money.

Yeah, I was thinking that. And "AMEN" to the posters who pointed out that Mexican prisoners better hope Mami's a good cook, and that if you don't like the idea of cheap jail food, don't become a criminal.

Hmmm. Given that Pennsylvania seems to be falling apart, and its citizens are fleeing (evidenced by the number of people moving here), I'm thinking that maybe you should worry about your own state.

Yeah, I hear the scores on Grand Theft Auto IV are really lower than expected in PA prisons. Those poor guys. It's so medieval, the way they have to get by. (Sniff.)

Well if they don't like the food then don't do the crime. I think that all of the jails should do that its not like you are at a B&B. Plus the health care that some of the inmates get is just nuts they get better meds than what my DH insurance gives us and my DH works for the department of corrections.
