Letter: No to preferential treatment at jail

Published:

 

Clark County is spending money on kosher meals requested by the inmates?

This is ridiculous. Gotta stop it.

I'm a taxpayer, and I don't want to pay for anything more than three meals a day, using the federally recommended dietary guideline. Period. If the inmates want anything more, too bad. They gave up their right to eat whatever they want when they committed a crime.

They still have a choice. They can go hungry.

An alternative: Set up a separate food service within the jail, and make it entirely self-supporting. The inmates must pay the entire cost of such meals, including all the overhead. Space rental, equipment rental, food-handlers' wages, the whole thing.
