I don’t know how it is in Michigan, but in Illinois, the prisoners buy their own TVs, which are about $300 minimum, and also they pay for the cable service. Those are not costs of the state/taxpayers.

I guarantee that maintaining the cable lines, not to mention mounts and injuries resulting from those televisions means that the taxpayers do indeed pay a significant portion of the cost, if not more than what the prisoners pay.

Besides, why on earth would anyone want a prisoner to have a high value personal possession in a prison full of thieves?
