Now I have nothing against liberals. Why some of my bbfs are liberals. Love the person, hate the sin. (j/k) So who do we blame for this dou....uhm person? This guys gets arrested and then is mad because for six weeks he had to work 3 days a week in the laundry for .25 an hour. Now he is suing stating his 13 Admendment rights have been violated because he was being held for trial and not a convicted of any crime. What? You're in jail on the tax payer's dime and you don't think you owe anything? I work a full time job just to see that you have clothes on your back and food in your belly and you still want more money from me? Gad! The nerve of some people. Maybe we should be like some other countries. You come out in whatever clothes you were wearing when you went in. No work, no food, medical and cable, not to mention a/c. GRRRR!

when a person is arrested they are not being held for punishment, they are being held till trial, they still have all the rights of a citizen till they are convicted. he was acquitted in the end. which means he was held against his will for 6 weeks for nothing. think about it.

If it is punishment to contribute to his room and board, then I have been on punishment most of my life.

when a person is being held for trial, they are not suppose to be treated like criminals and forced to work. the amount he is asking is way too much, but he was held and not convicted. which legally means they held a innocent man for 6 weeks for no reason.

O guess we just have to agree to disagree on this one. :-)

For your consideration: We complain about how much the government spends, locally and nationally. So if someone has to contribute to the upkeep, via KP duty, laundry duty etc, I do not think that is punishment. Now if he was to work on a chain gang or something, that would be a different story. Or would you rather tax dollars go to washing his clothes for him? People in the military do things like this all the time and it is not considered punishment. Now as for them threating him...well that is going a little far, I agree. But the whole idea that he doesn't have to contribute to his up keep doesn't sit well with me. Often on these blogs people are moaning and groaning about people on welfare and how they need to work. Yet they haven't broken the law or suspected of breaking the law. I see a double standard here. Maybe I am wrong (won't be the first time, or the last) but that is how I feel about it.

hmmm...I have to agree with the guy filing the lawsuit on this one. Wasn't convicted, yet still in jail for 6 months. Was he in jail with convicts? Plus, all charges were dropped? Seems like he's got a case and will probably win.

The Link posted is in regard to the Ft. Hood shooting. I know a little off track as he is guilty... However, after 3 years the families have no closure and it does not to be too far in sight as now he has proclaimed that he wears a beard for religious reasons. Kinda funny considering he was clean shaven when he committed the crime. The point I am trying to make is in regards to some of the comments in this blog. It seems that people that are part of the "system" seem to be able to claim ridiculous points of contention that delays closure of the trail. The the appeals system seems to be endless. If you are on death row, no worries as it will be another 10-20 years before you might be executed, I say put death row in the express lane and start demonstrating consquences for actions.
