If you think life in South African prisons is a little bit too luxurious, then clearly you haven’t heard what’s happening in Germany!
While some of us have takeaways once a month due to financial setbacks, Police in the western German town of Bergisch Gladbach started ordering takeaway McDonalds for inmates after a food supply contract fell through at the start of March, local media reported on Monday.
The inmates of the short-term facility are given the choice of a Hamburger, a Cheeseburger or a Veggieburger for lunch and a McToast with cheese, ham and bacon for breakfast, Cologne tabloid “Express” reported.
The inmates are given the privilege to mark off their choices and officers pick up their orders from a McDonalds branch 160 meters away, the tabloid reported.
The catering business cancelled the prison contract shortly after its main client in the town, the local hospital, ended its business dealings with the firm. So a quick replacement needed to be found and that’s when Mcd’s was chosen, how convenient.
“The location and the round-the-clock availability made us decide in favor of McDonalds,” police spokesman Richard Barz told local paper “Bergische Landeszeitung.”
In 2016 the police distributed approximately 300 meals to inmates, with 642 people spending time in the cells, the paper reported.
The state interior ministry told “Express” that McDonalds did not fit regulations and was an “emergency solution.”
With this kind of treatment from our government officials, it is no wonder crime will remain a huge global crisis.
