Angry Outrageous Connecticut Supreme Court Ruling

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/03/05...be-forced-fed/

Unbelievable in the United States Of America. A state given the green light by a court to use the techniques of the former Soviet Union. Clearly a violation of the 8th Amendment and the legal concept of adults being able to refuse medical care. Why do the courts allow the claim by state DOCs that riots will break out if a inmate commits suicide when they cannot cite one documented incident. At least the state of Florida showed some enlightenment in their Singletary v Costello ruling

I am just posting a response to the ruling (not picking sides here). The main reason that they are allowed to force feef now is because of lawsuits. The state doesnt want to be sued if an inmate starves. I also makes the DOC look bad.

They already look bad!
They treat people in such awful ways that they choose death over the horror of incarceration and then they get evenmore torture if they choose to stop eating.
I think it should be that persons choice.Mind you,the man I loved has done two hunger strikes and had a major heart attack at 36 (which may be realated to severe weight loss during his second hunger strike).It was his choice to risk his life over indeterminate shu sentences.
If the prisons don't want to look bad perhaps they should not torture people!
