Be Good, Jailbird, And You Too Can Have A Pizza Party For the UM-OSU Game


JailBirdAll across the state of Ohio, there will be football parties and good times for the gridiron matchup between Michigan and Ohio State next Saturday.

To the dismay of the Columbia County Sheriff David Smith, even the inmates will be having a party to celebrate this battle between the #1 Buckeyes and #2 Wolverines. And there looks to be nothing he can do to stop the private jail from throwing a pizza and football party for the inmates.

If I was the Sheriff, I would pull out the big stick to stop this. Felons should not be having parties at the taxpayers expense. They are there to be punished, not to have pizza parties.


The sheriff in northeastern Ohio’s Columbiana County is fuming about plans for an inmate pizza party during the Ohio State-Michigan football game.
“A jail is a jail,” Sheriff David Smith told The Youngstown Vindicator.
The sheriff initially thought there was no pizza party, when the newspaper asked him about it.
The newspaper said it obtained a copy of a notice from the jail warden to the inmates. It said each will get three slices of pizza in addition to their regular meals on game day, Nov. 18, as a way to show support for the Buckeyes.
When the paper showed Smith the notice about the party, Smith said, “There will be no party.”
But Smith said he isn’t sure he can do much about it, because the jail is run privately by a Massachusetts company.
The notice said in return for their treat, inmates must keep the noise down during the big game and keep their cells tidy. It also said they must stop “horseplay and childish games” and “help us to help you to have an easy time while you’re here.” via KFOX.

      Sorry to disagree with SM, as I rarely do. I have been on 3 juries, one pretty big case, regrettfully each was found guilty. But each might one day get out of prison. I want things done with them, to them and for them which will prepeare them for coming back to society one day. I do feel some felons too far gone or otherwise not candidates to ever get out, but many of those will get out, so let us provide the best good deed/reward we can on them.

      While near this subject, also I suggest that of the more rapes than occurr to women, it is men in prison raped and beaten. Put behind us should be the grins and revenge, some of the cuteness amoung some of our numbers who think it funny or exact revenge. Upon a rape or beating a prison employee should lose their job…one for one.

      Training big dogs, most cannot do involves stern fairness. A lending of individual rights to the other…interested in the dog himself and his rights…his gain, more freedom and more rights, pride in job well done. Tough when out of order! —– I feel certain that working with what works best, that working in stern “fairness” — such fairness can surely involve a pizza and football game for a prisoner humans have to be around.

      I needed to set something straight. I am from Columbiana County. This is a private owned jail, and the money used to pay for the pizza comes from the prison’s fund for the inmates. We taxpayers do not pay for that.

      Here is a link to our local newspaper explaining the funding for the pizza.
