    Hodgson irked by House's rejection to charge inmates $5 a day

    Massachusetts House lawmakers have rejected a proposal to charge prison inmates $5 a day.

    Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, who had the fee in place from 2002 to 2004, was very mad Wednesday, saying he stands by the idea, which he said raised $750,000 in the two years the fee was levied on inmates at the Bristol County House of Correction.

    They should keep it. It would keep those inmates out that don't want to spend the winter on the street's and would rather go spend a month or two in a warm place with free meals and bed..

    Sheriff Hodgson, your passion and dedication to bring some sanity to this clown show called Massachusetts politics is commendable. As a weary taxpayer you have my vote for whatever office you would like to run for.

    I don't like the Sheriff, but do agree with the fee!
