Emails reveal Michigan prisoners regularly served maggot-ridden food, forced to engage in sexual acts for food

Seven months after hiring an outside contractor to feed prisoners in state prisons, Michigan officials are considering scrapping the contract over serious problems ranging from maggots in the food to private contract employees abusing and having sex with prisoners.

According to emails acquired by the Detroit Free Press under the Michigan’s Freedom of Information Act, state officials are at their “wit’s end,” over the complete failure of the Aramark Correctional Services of Philadelphia to control their employees and fulfill the terms of their contract.

In an attempt to save $12 million annually, Michigan outsourced food services to Aramark starting in January of this year, only to receive reports of maggots in the food, unclean kitchens,  food shortages causing increased tensions with the prisoners, as well as Aramark employees smuggling in contraband and assaulting inmates.

One Aramark food service director showed up for work drunk and failed a Breathalyzer test while another was caught trying to smuggle marijuana into the prison.

“I’m at my wit’s end,” Kevin Weissenborn, the Michigan Department of Corrections manager in charge of overseeing Aramark’s contract, wrote to one prison warden in March.

“I know how you feel,” replied Warden Heidi Washington of the Charles E. Egeler Reception & Guidance Center in Jackson. “At first I felt like Lansing thought I was just being too difficult and too demanding because I was always complaining. However, I think everyone knows that’s not the case.”

Although Aramark only employs 300 workers in Michigan’s prisons, 74 Aramark workers have been banned from prison property for various infractions in just six months.

Aramark was fined $98,000 in March for repeated contract violations such as running out of food and making improper substitutions for required menu items.

Gov. Rick Snyder (R) is now considering scrapping the $145-million, three-year contract before the summer heat intensifies, worried over prison unrest.

After reading reports of maggots in the food at two prisons, Michigan Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardvill (R-Monroe) called for new bids from other companies.

“It doesn’t matter if they’re prisoners or who they are, people don’t deserve that type of treatment,” Richardville said.

Aramark officials have released a statement claiming they believe many of the complaints stem from prison officials unhappy with outsourcing jobs at the expense of state Corrections Department workers.

THIS IS THE SAME CATERER WE PAY $2000 A SEMESTER FOR!!!!! At University of Texas at Arlington.

People think for some reason that private companies are the way to go. 

like…I legit cannot even wrap my head around the level of evil necessary for this

TW. Lots.

So, today was pretty fucking magical. I wandered into the best Batman panel I have ever even heard of because I missed ‘Batman in the 70’s’ because we were out watching Night Vale, and my husband wanted to see the World of Warcraft panel and Dennis O’Neil was supposed to be in the next panel, too. I didn’t even LOOK at what it was. Frank Miller, Grant Morrison, Jim Lee, Neal Adams. When they started coming out on the stage, one after another, I was absolutely floored.

I don’t know, I guess it’s better to be lucky than smart, after all.

after that, we decided to try for the Hannibal panel, even though it would be ridiculous to try and get into Ballroom 20 right as the panel was starting- but earlier at Night Vale there were whispers that there was strange magic going on, that people had been walking right into Ballroom 20 all day even though everybody knows that’s impossible (Night Vale was amazing, by the way-image

The girl in front of me mentioned how Misha had run right past her last year- and I perked up like ‘what-Misha-what?’ and it turned out I was in a little crowd of Supernatural fans who were doing GISHWHES so I was in with excellent people, and all the questions were great, and they were so goddamn sincere and fabulous. That I now know Cecil loved Sir Ian Mckellen and Dylan liked Ricky on ‘My So Called Life’ and Anjelica Huston from ‘The Witches’ is just icing on the cake. Also Meg Bashwiner complemented my t-shirt).

So (anyway) we gave it a shot. And the whispers were right. We walked right in. Hannibal panel!!!!!

the person who came up to the mic in the doctor chilton mask was my favorite.

Thanks tumblr (and comic con, I guess) for the combination of your shitty phone app and the totally crappy internet in the panels making my usually nice phone completely lock up and end up reposting the same 2 posts like 10 times each. Awesome. I hope your app dies in a fire.

Will Graham and Margo both getting a scar on their stomach in the same spot was deliberate- both characters were marked by their oppressors

Omg on Hannibal in the writers room the code for the woman stuffed into the horse was ’ the turduken’

Denny O’ Neal is sitting next to Neal Adams is sitting next to Frank Miller next to Jim Lee next to Grant Morrison. This panel is legendary.
