Why do they get you up for breakfast so early in jail?

We got woken before 6am to get what they called "breakfast". Why do they do that so early as it just makes the day longer and it is not like you have much to do for the day.

    That's precisely why they do it, to make your days longer and more unbearable. It's prison, not ClubMed.

    When you commit a crime for which you could be jailed it is always important to make certain that breakfast is served at a reasonable hour.  If it is not, the commit the crime in another State.

    The hours vary from place to place.  Be grateful that they do not wake you at 4:00 to do manual labor for a couple hours before you are allowed to have a meal/

    Don't do the crime if you don't like the time. You did the crime now you get to pay for it.

    From what I remember, being sentenced to prison is supposed to be a punishment for committing a crime. It's not designed to make your stay a pleasant one, nor should it be.

      Even then, 9th amendment, cruel/excess punishment. Fed law says so many calories/inmate//day/ A lot of incarceration is Rehab, again by Fed law. Last thing States want is recidivism, it looks bad to Feds and they lose funding.

    Rude awakenings seems to be a common method of keeping people demoralized and in line...

    I'm not sure if that's why they do that there... but it does make me think of boot camp.
