TDCJ have missed a trick though, they could have got the inmates to make the dolls The offenders the correct word already make TDCJ enough money. They charge for everything.
Pictures, commissary, which they have to buy everything,except the White 2-piece uniform they are issued.
What they need to do is not add insult to injury. They need to become more about rehabilitaion instead of punishment. The offenders are already being punished.

Order soon, while supplies last! One wonders: Do they come in multiracial versions? You can also buy wallets, belt buckles or an inmate-made teargas case. For you eggheads out there who aren't interested in purchasing a belt buckle the size of a five-year old's cranium, there's also an interesting list of books about Texas prisons from the museum bookstore. In this book Donald R.
Walker examines economic, social, and political aspects of late nineteenth and early twentieth-century Texas that resulted in the leasing system and its eventual demise. That's a history I guess I vaguely knew about - renting out prisoners' labor to corporations, or God knows who else as a profit-making scheme for the state, but I've never seen an historial examination of the subject.

They include inmates and prisoners of war supplying materials to the Confederate army and convict laborers building a state railroad and quarrying granite for the beautiful state capitol in Austin.

Both those sound like good reads, but I still can't get over the idea that somebody at TDCJ got the idea to have prisoners make these bobble head dolls and sell them at the Texas Prison Museum. I don't know that there's anything wrong with it, per se, really it just strikes me as odd, and kinda dopey. OTOH, thank God somebody in the prison system still has a sense of humor.
On Tuesday, they caught me with a file. On Wednesday, I'm in solitary. On Thursday I start on bread and water for a while. I've got stripes, stripes around my shoulders. I've got chains, chains around my feet.
