Texas Prisons: No Lunch on Saturday and Sunday

In what was labeled as a cost-cutting move, since April, some Texas prisons have stopped providing inmates with lunch on the weekend.

By not feeding inmates three meals a day on Saturday and Sunday, the Texas prison system thinks it will save upward of $2.8 million. Other ways the Texas Department of Criminal Justice plans to cut cost include replacing carton milk with a powder substitute and using regular bread for hamburger and hot dog buns, according to a report by the New York Times.

Last month Texas officials also did away with the age-old practice of providing inmates that are about to be executed with a last meal.

Texas are some heart-less muddafockers….
