Chicago BreakingNews reports that an Illinois prison was forced to cut a Netflix subscription as part of recent budget cuts.
When Lake County Jail inmates behaved, officials ordered a little weekend entertainment from Netflix, showing such hits as "Schindler's List" and "Hotel Rwanda."
"We didn't let the inmates choose them," said Richard Liddle, the jail's inmate program manager. "Or we'd have been watching '(The Texas) Chainsaw Massacre.'"
But the curtain has been dropped on the perk now that the jail's $35 monthly Netflix subscription has been canceled -- a tiny portion of the $2 million in budget cuts that Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran disclosed Thursday.Thanks to Lamarr for sending this in.
