I don't know...should I even call it that? I'm not really going to get on it and preach to the world, but I just gotta point this out...
3900 Stimulus Checks Went To Prison Inmates...by mistake
The federal government processed $13 billion in stimulus payments. About $425,000 was incorrectly sent to inmates.
Some of it, supposedly, was ok for them to get. They were technically eligible. But the other 1700 checks sent out...well, weren't.
Now I'm not saying that folks sitting in prison aren't citizens, aren't equally and legally eligible for anything the rest of us, um, law abiding citizens, are eligible for, but still...
YOU are in PRISON. You just aren't supposed to get the perks of life the rest of us are supposedly entitled to. I mean, you are there for a reason, and most often it's a valid one, you know? You aren't supposed to get bonus bread crumbs from the government. That just ain't right.
But like I said, I'm not going to soapbox the whole thing. I'm just sayin' it ain't right.
it just ain't right.
