^ this is a story about a guy in his first year of a 30 - 50 year sentence for beating a toddler to death. The prisoner -age 35, 6'2" and 265 pounds- died of what appear to be blood clots in the lungs. In the comments related to the story it is speculated that a person beaten hard can develop clots in the lungs, ergo his death. Is this possible? This guy being beaten unto death?
I'm going to say that's probably the most likely cause....and I'd personally like to thank whomever admistered it and saved the taxpayer 35-40k a year in housing this waste of a life.
A new "cause" that has seemed to come into fashion is handwringing and wanting to "do something" about the male on male prison rape "epidemic" (as if this is some sort of a new thing). I can agree that juveniles shouldn't be thrown into GenPop like chum in the water......but I'm totally down with adults having the fear of a very possible reality that if you get locked up you just might end up being made someone's bitch and traded around for cigarettes. how about instead of worrying about the prison rape issue, worry about the issue of a whole generation of people not concerned about going to prison?
