Let the Beef Critter Chow Down

Broderick Lloyd Laswell of Bentonville, Arkansas, is suing the Benton County Jail for putting him on a starvation diet that has caused him to lose more than a hundred pounds. When he was first booked for murder, Laswell weighed 413 pounds, but after just eight months in jail, he was down to a frail 308. There’s obviously something wrong with a prison system that uses hunger as a means of manipulation and control, and if Broderick goes under 280, I say we go to the feeding tube before we have another Terri Shiavo situation on our hands.

his cellmate should sue for "cruel and unusual punishment" if he had to sleep in the bottom bunk.

They're just trying to wedge his big ass into the chair.

Perhaps they should try the punishment for the sin of gluttony as shown in the movie "Seven".
