Recent information obtained through Freedom of Information showed that some of our most dangerous criminals housed in Barwon Prison are dining on rump steak and chicken kiev with jam doughnuts and ice cream for dessert. Furthermore, individual prisoner’s dietary and religious requirements are met by the prison catering.
One pensioner said that after paying rent and bills that she definitely cannot afford rump steak or chicken kiev and that such foods are luxuries.
Victims of crimes are also outraged by the prospect of funding the gourmet lifestyle of their offenders.
Research indicates that a high percentage of prisoners who are released from jail return to jail relatively quickly. Maybe they miss the food.
