Is it fair to punish prisoners with horrible food?


Nutraloaf. Disciplinary loaf. Prison loaf. Special management meal. The loaf.

This disgusting paste of “nutrients” has been in the US prison system for years, and is now being fed to the criminals of Bay City. Feeding prisoners is a must, but is feeding them horrible food really conducive to a proper rehabilitation? Does serving our inmates here in Bay City such disgusting food actually make them angrier and more prone to a unsuccessful rehabilitation and an increase of repeat offenders? We dive in deep to find out what dirty water and Nutraloaf really is doing to one of Bay Cities hardest criminals.

This story was first brought to our attention by James Proudi, a popular singer/songwriter and restaurateur. Mr.Proudi had found himself on the wrong side of the law and ended up in jail, When he entered prison he was met with some of the worst living conditions he had ever experienced in his life. We asked him to elaborate and he had this to say.

“So I get shipped down there, firstly the prison outfits were simply ridiculous. I’m telling y’all they got us parading around like clowns out there. No yard time at all, just cooped up in a tiny room for MONTHS! So I just get to working out, I gotta stay fit and lean. First day in and it’s breakfast. I walk into the cafeteria and what is presented to me, a dry, stale hunk of bread. First I thought it had damn cockroaches on it but then I realized…It’s Nutraloaf.”

We asked Mr.Proudi to explain the taste of the food.

“The taste? It was like eating a brick of cardboard. Not even Chef Justin could make this thing taste any good. No criminal in this city no matter how many banks they rob deserves to have to eat this filth. But that wasn’t even the worst part of it.”

“They give us a plastic cup filled with what looks like brown water. The damn pipes in the prison have to be contaminated or something! I nearly puked when I seen it. I swear that night I had the worst sickness of my life.”

Between a lack of yard time and the quality of the food, the prisoners are very clearly unhappy. Some experts believe that there is a major difference between punishment and restraint, and that making some miserable will never truly lead to a successful rehabilitation. Does some reform need to happen in Bay City to properly rehabilitate our prisoners? We leave that answer up to you.
