    When I worked in the jail, sometimes I felt like my rights were violated having to search some stinking dirty butt mopes, let alone having to fight them to use soap.:shower:

    Yup. Lets hope it works.

    What amazes me is that this case was because someone "touched" his hair. In Texas he would've been suing, and losing, because we CUT HIS HAIR OFF and he was now bald.

    That fact that he won establishes that his case was successful and will not bode well for corrections in the future.

    The animals are running the farm folks.

    That, and often any reward also requires the defendant to pay attorney's fees. It seems to be a common tactic...If you think my client deserves anything...Even a dollar, then give him what he deserves! (Because I want my money...)

    A win is a win and in this case, that is unfortunate.

    Most folks here know that many states already are enforcing grooming standards, as some have mentioned. In this particular case, I suspect that this turd's shallow victory may, in fact, hasten more states to get on board and enforce uniform grooming standards. My state has been talking about this for several years. I would love to see it become reality.

    The whole thing about their stinking 'freedom of religion' is another huge cluster****.

    Corrections continues to become more and more nauseating as time goes on. I hope I can hold my nose until retirement.

    Well, ours has been allowing any length, and any style; as long as it is clean. Yeah, that's right. I don't see it changing anytime soon. Retirement in five to seven.
