    Default US prisoner sues over weight loss

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/7370362.stm

    An overweight prisoner in the United States is suing the authorities for
    not feeding him enough after he lost about seven stone (45kg) in jail.

    Broderick Lloyd Laswell, who is awaiting trial for murder, dropped to 22
    stone (140kg) after eight months inside the Arkansas prison.

    He claims his vision has gone blurry while trying to exercise.

    The prison says the meals average 3,000 calories a day - more than the
    US recommended daily intake for adults.

    Laswell has filed a federal law suit complaining Benton County jail does
    not provide inmates with enough food.

    Hungry again

    According to the suit, Laswell weighed 29 stone (187kg) when he was
    jailed in September.

    Police say he has been charged with fatally beating and stabbing a man,
    the Associated Press news agency reported.

    "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," he wrote in his
    complaint.

    "About an hour after each meal my stomach starts to hurt and growl. I
    feel hungry again."

    He then goes on to complain about the lack of physical exercise, adding:
    "The only reason we lost weight in here is because we are literally
    being starved to death."

    The suit also asks that the county be ordered to serve hot meals instead
    of cold food.

    I like it. I think they should shrink them down to the point where they
    won't be able to lift a gun or knife or even get a boner to abuse other
    inmates. They should all be in wheelchairs with O2 tanks when they finish
    their sentence.

    Yeah, but at some point they'll get so thin they will slide right
    through the bars. LOL
