Kids vs. Cons: Who Gets a Better Meal?

foodtrayThere has been a lot of media coverage lately about the rights of those being held in county jails and state prisons.  Are they being treated fairly? Do they have adequate accommodations?  In fact, the state of California is dealing with some pretty significant prison and jail overcrowding challenges.  The Governor has actually been ordered by the Supreme Court to reduce its prison populations to make the prisons more humane or be held in contempt.  So the question we would like to pose for the topic of this bail bond blog post is how far we should go when it comes to balancing humanity and accountability. 

This past week an article was written out of Georgetown, Texas congratulating the Williamson County Jail for achieving a perfect score on its latest health inspection, including the area of food safety.  The prison did so well, that many people are starting to wonder why in the world the local schools aren’t doing as well.  In fact, several Texas prisons have scored better than many of the public schools in Texas when it comes to food safety and quality.  Has the health of those convicted of a crime become more important than the health and wellbeing of our children?  While for most people (especially parents) choosing between the well-being of children and convicts is a no brainer, but for some the question is less obvious.  What do you think?  Should prisons score better on food safety and health than your child’s school?  Read the original story below.
