They did away with a lot of that in Michigan. They still work in the kitchens but they contracted out control to private business in some areas.
They used to make license plates, but that went away long ago now, some high ranking individual must have had a friend that desired to make license
plates to sell to the state.
A prisoner should be earning their keep. They could learn to work there and appreciate a job when they get out because they have learned that they
have to work in either place. No free rides for anyone, even in the Federal prisons where things are much easier. Doing a Felony gets you better
company, the big wheels are there. Some prisons are for rich people, they mingle with their kind, the government doesn't treat them the same. There
are actually swimming pools for the prisoners to use in a few facilities. I suppose in our society built on deceit, the best deceivers are given a
break. Outright theives are not allowed here, just people who trick you out of your money.
I met a guy in a big fancy Hotel in Florida who was placed there for major fraud while he awaited trial. He wasn't allowed to leave the Hotel, he
wasn't allowed off the floor we were on without someone. He had swindled millions of dollars from people. Instead of going to jail to await trial
they stuck him in this Hotel prison where he could go swimming, eat at the fancy restaurant, and call whoever he wanted or have anyone over. His was
not a violent crime and he was not a flight risk, he had money to pay back the people he ripped off in his schemes. He complained that the great
continental breakfast we ate in the mornings was crap. He complained about the Hilton we stayed in at about one thirty a night many years ago, it was
not up to his standards. I guess he was really suffering there, how would he have done in the county jail. We only stayed there three days in 89.
Met a few good people there, ones who had to suffer with this guys negativity. He thought he was right, that if he could sucker people out of their
money he was superior to them. I did not approve of his actions even though he was targeting richer people. Richer businessmen just pass their
losses on to the consumer.
I never did find what happened to that guy, he kept insisting his scheme was legal. I actually think it may have been legal, there are not many laws
that govern deceit or swindling others. If there was, then most salesmen would be in jail for talking someone into buying something more than they
really need. Our country is based on deceit, most people have been conditioned so well they can't even identify deceit. If you can see it, they
call you paraniod and label you with a mental illness. You are not supposed to be aware, you are supposed to be normally blind to this. Except those
who run all of this, they learn to control it. They are very good at this, it has been run for many generations. There is probably a college that
teaches this subject, a college that most people do not get to attend.
