I doubt he did. Like I said, Ohio steals any donated money and uses it to pay off booking fees. This prison seems to be doing worst. Unless you feel like dropping a grand or two to get him a Cheese Burger.
I was thinking of getting his a few, till what you said sunk in on me. The person system appears to be falsely advertising how products bought are actually used. Doors may get out and cuss me out for discouraging donating, but it really looks like all we are doing is buying him mop glow to mop the fucking floors with, in a effort to make the prisoners pay for themselves.
Sounds like a lawsuit, but I don't have standing, cause I was too cautious. You yourself donated. You have standing. They will claim it is a different business, separate from the sheriff's department. You'll need a lawyer willing to call bullshit on that and plow through. If I had any money, I would Sue first for the dietician who developed the prisons meals, if Doors isn't lying, it sounds unconstitutionally cruel given a balogne and cheese sandwich twice a day certainly can't provide for nutritional needs.
Not saying bust out the steak and lobster either, they have the right to feed him only what he needs, as Spartan as they care, but this is really looking like a case of fraud on the part of the Virginia beach sheriff's department in pressuring people to buy food, beg for it out if reasonable hunger, then when people take pity and buy it, it never reaches them, but instead pays for their maintance.
If that is the case, that sheriff should be in jail too. That's not merely fraud, but excessively cruel punishment. Then again, Zoots could be exaggerating or lying. Doesn't have much to loose.
So, only lawyer here is Carleas, kinda close to Virginia. He likely isn't able to practice law in that state, but his unofficial office (him on his couch after work) might be persuaded to send a letter representing Zoots, wanting a copy of the dietian's food plan for the prison, and the cafeteria menu for the last 6 months, along with a detailed explanation how the commissary system works.
I doubt he would, but it is a issue on his forum, upsetting some of his posters. A DC Lawyer on the sheriff's ass is enough to likely shake them up, knowing they are being watched. If we find something legally absurd is clearly documented, we can collectively decide what to do after that.
Just gotta figure out how to convince Carleas to react. It be a simple few letters from him, with the fancy ass envelop and lawyer speak, with the heading paper. He just would go to the lawyer supply shop, pick up that for a buck or two, cost of stamp.
We would need a few agreeing before we go poke him, asking him for help. Anyone else agree this prison needs looked into?
