From the Freep, Michigan prisoners’ free coffee on the chopping block:
In an effort to save $250,000 this year, inmates in state prisons and people in boot camps and correctional centers won’t be able to get free coffee after March 1, Corrections Department spokesman Russ Marlan said Monday.
Critics stop short of calling this cruel and unusual punishment:
Barbara Levine is the executive director of the prison advocacy group Citizens Alliance on Prisons and Public Safety. She said eliminating free coffee in state prisons shows that state officials are looking in the wrong places to reduce spending.
