Black market food, that is a real survey evidently…..
Bernard Kerik was jailed for three years in the federal prison system and doesn’t recall ever being “asked what kind of food do you like” but does remember that bacon was “one of the hot commodities” on the black market among prisoners.
Kerik was addressing a decision by the federal Bureau of Prisons to ban pork products from being served in the 122 prisons it runs nationwide.
A prison bureau spokesman told the Washington Post that surveys found prisoners do not like pork and because of that and the fact that it was costly to serve, the decision was made to remove all pork products from the prison menu.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations praised the move for “facilitating the accommodation of Muslim inmates.”
“I was in the federal system for three years, I was never given a survey,” Kerik, a former New York Police Department commissioner, told “Newsmax Prime” host J.D. Hayworth Monday on Newsmax TV.
“I was never asked what kind of food do you like or you don’t like…. And I will tell you, pork, bacon, was one of the hot commodities on the black market within the prison system.”
“So I’m not sure who they talked to, what survey they took, supposedly. I just don’t see it. I don’t get it.”
