Money-Grabs Go to Next Level
Prisoners in Riverside County, California, who have assets may soon be required to fork over approximately $143 a day for their stay in what County Supervisor Jeff Stone calls the “Prison Hotel.”
An ordinance to introduce the proposal was passed unanimously by the county supervisors last week, and a vote is expected shortly. Whether or not it passes, Stone may be correct in stating, “I think we’re blazing a new trail here. In these very challenging economic times, I believe this can be a source of revenue. I believe this can return 3 to 5 million (dollars) a year during these very challenging economic times.” (Emphasis added.)
