Emails reveal Michigan prisoners regularly served maggot-ridden food, forced to engage in sexual acts for food | Raw Story
Seven months after hiring an outside contractor to feed prisoners in state prisons, Michigan officials are considering scrapping the contract over serious problems ranging from maggots in the food to private contract employees abusing and having sex with prisoners.
According to emails acquired by the Detroit Free Press under the Michigan’s Freedom of Information Act, state officials are at their “wit’s end,” over the complete failure of the Aramark Correctional Services of Philadelphia to control their employees and fulfill the terms of their contract.
In an attempt to save $12 million annually, Michigan outsourced food services to Aramark starting in January of this year, only to receive reports of maggots in the food, unclean kitchens,  food shortages causing increased tensions with the prisoners, as well as Aramark employees smuggling in contraband and assaulting inmates.
One Aramark food service director showed up for work drunk and failed a Breathalyzer test while another was caught trying to smuggle marijuana into the prison.
“I’m at my wit’s end,” Kevin Weissenborn, the Michigan Department of Corrections manager in charge of overseeing Aramark’s contract, wrote to one prison warden in March.
“I know how you feel,” replied Warden Heidi Washington of the Charles E. Egeler Reception & Guidance Center in Jackson. “At first I felt like Lansing thought I was just being too difficult and too demanding because I was always complaining. However, I think everyone knows that’s not the case.”
Although Aramark only employs 300 workers in Michigan’s prisons, 74 Aramark workers have been banned from prison property for various infractions in just six months.
Aramark was fined $98,000 in March for repeated contract violations such as running out of food and making improper substitutions for required menu items.
Gov. Rick Snyder (R) is now considering scrapping the $145-million, three-year contract before the summer heat intensifies, worried over prison unrest.
After reading reports of maggots in the food at two prisons, Michigan Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardvill (R-Monroe) called for new bids from other companies.
“It doesn’t matter if they’re prisoners or who they are, people don’t deserve that type of treatment,” Richardville said.
Aramark officials have released a statement claiming they believe many of the complaints stem from prison officials unhappy with outsourcing jobs at the expense of state Corrections Department workers.

I’ll just leave this here…

I might have forgiven you, Jeff. Except that you didn’t skip over Malia’s mental development in order to more fully delve into her story or her struggles or, god-forbid, the plot. Nope, you skimmed over what ought to be a full on handicap in order to sexualize her and use her as the cherry popper for one of your precious boys like the misogynistic douche that you are. :)

When a writers ask the audience to simply “forgive” them from skipping over something extremely important, like the mental development of a character that was a wild animal since age 9, that’s how you know the writers are absolutely talentless. 

You know what? Screw you Davis…

I’m pretty sure you’ve reached your limit of “we thought they’d forgive us…” moments, with the amount of shit you’ve already pulled.

We liked that Lydia was sexually open and initiating, because she’s proven to be mature, and whilst technically in the state of California she’s below the age of consent, she’s portrayed as emotionally mature enough, but this is less a “oh I hope they’ll forgive us” and more a case of “well if we plaster it on thick enough they’ll forget she spent 8 FUCKING YEARS AS A COYOTE! And technically has the mental age of a child. There is no fucking way she’s emotionally mature…

Also, given your characterisation of Stiles as a “good guy” you’ve had to make her the sexually aggressive member of the couple to make it fit. And it’s just odd. I mean hell, it would have made more sense if you’d said “she’s suddenly physically an adult but mentally she’s still young and she’s reflecting what she sees as adult behaviour and she’s taking her cues from the girls she’s around, Lydia and Kira for example, so she’s faking maturity to make herself seem more grown up and to fit in, and Lydia seems like the most mature girl her age she knows so she’s copying the sexual openness, and yes we will deal with it at some point.” It’s a bullshit excuse but it’s fucking better than “oops, we thought they wouldn’t notice… or if they did they’d just smile and go ‘ah well’”…

How awesome does this sound though. You get infinite money and once a week you get to take a child to a candy store or toys or us or somewhere they love and buy them as much they want this would be fun given the kid wasn’t a brat.

There is no downside to this at all

This is the best, because it says A CHILD, not your child, so I could pick one of the really poor kids on the streets and go “Your life is going to change right now”, and I could buy everything their family might need, along with a house, a food supply, toys, clothes, and everything they never had the chance to have before. And the best thing is that I could do this with lots of children, and not just one. I could give a lot of children in need a full week of Christmas basically and maybe give them a chance to have a different life. That would be great.

No, I’d say the show does a great job of representing the typical 18-34 male with Larry, with his constant need for validation, attention, and the world to revolve around him.

not to mention Bennet’s quest to prove that he’s a man, Pornstache’s overcompensation that disguises his vulnerability, Healy’s struggle to make positive change that is frustrated by his need to be loved by a woman, and Caputo’s exploration of his desire to control the world around him and whether or not he wants to do that. men are quite accurately represented in the show, the only issue male viewers seem to have is that these men display the warped nature of man’s dominance, and the idea that their superiority is not perfect and noble is offensive.
