A depression era law allows sheriffs to keep and retain unspent money from jail food accounts. Sheriffs across the state of Alabama take excess money as personal income. Is it time to end depression era laws?

That’s an incentive to feed inmates as cheaply as possible, so the sheriff gets to keep the money. It’s a disgrace.

It is disgraceful and needs to be changed.

Did you see that another sheriff got a deal on corndogs, and gave them to the inmates twice a day?

I’ve heard that once or twice before. That’s fucked up.
