A prisoner in Kentucky found a new source of protein in his soup last week; a dead mouse. Now I know prison food isn't supposed to be good, but I'm pretty sure it shouldn't be so bad that it kills rodents. This is just the latest in a series of troubling concerns that resulted in riots regarding the food preparation and delivery "services" provided by Aramark. Aramark is paid $12 million by the state annually to feed some Kentucky prisoners, but apparently even that's not enough money for them to be able to serve food free of dead rodents (and their governor can't figure out why they should audit them). Either that, or they're just cutting corners left and right for the sake of maximizing profits at the direct expense of human suffering, but no, a corporation couldn't do that. Right?
