This is an outrage. An outrage!
In Benton County, Arkansas (homeland of our own Dustin!), prison inmate Broderick Lloyd Laswell is pissed off, and he’s not taking it anymore. Laswell has filed a civil rights lawsuit claiming that the inmates aren’t being given enough food. Among other things, his complaint says:
On several occasions I have started to do some exercising and my vision went blurry and I felt like I was going to pass out.
About an hour after each meal my stomach starts to hurt and growl. I feel hungry again.
If we are in a small pod all day do next to nothing for physical exercise we should not lose weight.
The only reason we lost weight in here is because we are literally are being starved to death.
Here’s the thing though — Laswell is 308 pounds, down from a svelt 413 when he started in the clink eight months ago.
First of all, fatty should be thankful for a diet that gets rid of over 100 pounds in under a year. Second of all, so the State is supposed to pay to feed him the trough-loads of food he requires to keep himself “healthy” and nourished? Really?
