2,818 calories a day at Gordon County Jail--according to one of your links--isn't starvation at all. Depending on how it's metabolized, it may even lead to weight gain.

Butte-Silver Bow County jail at 1,782 calories a day is on the low side, however.

@InfraBlue,
Here, we have a problem with criminals going to gaol, bulking up with a rich diet and weights, and coming back bigger . Some Police have complained that more violence occurs when arresting someone who is resisting, after their first time in the slammer . This is bad for the criminal as well as the Police .

We shouldn't be starving them.

We should be treating them like human beings.

On their part...they should have realized that prison was not going to be a picnic. If you cannot do the time...do not do the crime.

@InfraBlue,
True it looks like a lot of carbs. I guess junk food is cheaper.

@revelette2,
Maybe you should look over a few nursing homes. At some (not all) two of three meals are some kind of slop on noodles. In fact, if you have to choose such a facility for someone, I suggest you do your inspection tour at meal times.
