A Chicago jail is offering gourmet Italian pizza to inmates. For no more than $7, inmates can order a gourmet pizza created by other inmates. The initiative is one that allows inmates to be treated more humanely and to learn skills that will help them upon release.
The pizza offer is, also, a way to get inmates to behave. If they misbehave, their pizza privileges are revoked. The jail spent $16,000 on the gourmet pizza oven to make the pizza.
