Governor says maggotty food for prisoners not acceptable

by: Eric B.

Tue Jul 01, 2014 at 16:25:14 PM EDT


A man of such steely resolve his spine is made entirely of empty sausage casing.

“We need to get these things resolved,” Snyder told the Associated Press at an event in Lansing Tuesday, calling the issue unacceptable. He wouldn’t speculate on whether Aramark’s contract is at risk, but said his administration is moving closer to having to make a decision.

He's talking of the recent discovery of flies and maggots near a prison serving line run by Aramark, the same company whose efficient management of food operations led to at least one prison riot and complaints from prison officials that the company was making unauthorized menu substitutions.

I realize these people have been found guilty, either by a jury or a legal system that pressured them into taking a deal because no one is terribly interested in knowing whether poor people accused of crimes have in fact done anything wrong, which means it's okay to treat them like shit, but can we at least think of the prison guards whose jobs are made more dangerous by mistreating convicts.

Aramark has been (4.00 / 1)
incompetent from the very start. From fraternization to smuggled contraband to unauthorized menu substitutions and now maggots. What's unacceptable is that Aramark is still getting paid. But hey, anything to get rid of those union workers...
