OKC Bomber suing over food issues

Oklahoma City bombing co-conspirator Terry Nichols sues over his diet

Oklahoma City bombing co-conspirator Terry Nichols is complaining about his diet again — this time in a handwritten federal lawsuit seeking more than $2 million.

 

Terry Nichols

 

He claims the food he gets in federal prison in Colorado violates his religious rights. He also claims the "indifference” of prison officials to his medical needs is cruel and unusual punishment.

Nichols complained that he "is compelled to consume daily those unhealthy dead and refined foods that are abhorrent to plaintiff’s sincerely held religious beliefs causing him physical, mental and spiritual torment, and to sin against God.”

He wrote that he sincerely believes that God created mankind to consume unrefined whole foods. He wrote that he is forced to sin against God by eating refined foods that destroy "His holy temple ... my body.”

He is demanding 100 percent whole-grain foods, more fresh raw vegetables and fresh fruit, a wheat bran supplement, and digestive bacteria and enzymes. He wrote that his religious beliefs and requests "are not absurd, unorthodox, nor costly.”

He wrote he has been dealing with chronic constipation, bleeding and hemorrhoids for more than 30 years.

His complaints about food in the past have angered victims of the 1995 attack who have said he does not deserve special treatment. In 1996, before his federal trial, he refused to stand four times for inmate counts to protest that he wasn’t getting whole-wheat bread. In 2001, before his state trial, he fasted for almost six days to protest his food at the jail.

His 39-page lawsuit was filed in federal court in Denver March 16.

He also complained that because of his conviction for the bombing, prison employees have discriminated against him. He wrote that he has been stereotyped by the Bureau of Prisons, the court and the media as being a terrorist. "Mr. Nichols is not a terrorist,” he wrote.

Since his trials, Nichols has admitted to the FBI, his family, a U.S. congressman and others that he helped bomber Tim McVeigh gather components for the fertilizer bomb and that he helped build the bomb in the back of a rented truck.

 

Boooo fucking hoo!

... "is compelled to consume daily those unhealthy dead and refined foods that are abhorrent to plaintiff's sincerely held religious beliefs causing him physical, mental and spiritual torment, and to sin against God."

I think committing Mass Murder is probably a little worse of a sin than eating Bologna on Wonder Bread.......

 

But, that's just my opinion.

Your Mileage may vary.......

almost every inmate who gets a buncha time tries that shit... or goes on a hunger strike...

we have one here in Corrupticut that's on a hunger strike 'cause he's innocent....

so much of our tax dollars are spent going to court to force him to eat, 'cause if we don't,

what's left of the family that he didn't kill, will sue saying the state didn't take care of him and feed him...

not that any of them come visit him now or have anything to do with him now... :banghead:

You pull that shit here, you get a room with out a view and nutraloaf, I have tasted it before, my office is next to the Regional Dieticians office Only thing I have ever tasted worse, is that shit I had to drink before my colon proceesure, then there was that time in the Phillipines, ..... never mind, this is a family forum.

 

 

April 6, 2002 -- How do you handle a hungry con? If he ain't misbehavin', regular old, godawful prison food will do. But if he's been bad, and if he happens to be a resident of Baltimore's Maryland Correctional Adjustment Center, he might be stuck eating what the prison calls a "special management meal," and what the inmates call…. Well, this is a family public radio network.

 

Let's just say the inmates don't like "prison loaf." And that's the whole idea. It's all part of a wider effort to "discourage negative inmate behavior," Warden Thomas Corcoran tells Scott Simon on Weekend Edition Saturday.

 

Sort of a carrot-and stick approach to corrections, then. Except that the carrots in this case are finely grated and mixed with wheat bread, fake cheese, spinach, beans, raisins and other ingredients to create what Simon concludes "smells a little bit like the food they serve in the elephant cage at the National Zoo."

 

But how does it taste? "Blander than bland," declares Simon, who bravely samples the product on the air.

 

Inmates sentenced to loaf-consumption are served the horrible stuff three times a day for about a week (each loaf weighs a pound). If they keep their noses clean, they can then go back to the relative culinary delights of regular prison fare. If not, it's back to the loaf, which Corcoran says adheres to all nutritional guidelines, and even meets the needs of most special diets.

 

Does it work? Corcoran says that in the two years since the prison's behavior-modification program -- including the loaf -- was instituted, the incidence of inmate assaults on prison staff has been cut in half. "The proof is in the loaf," he says.

 

If you want to judge for yourself, here's the recipe:

 

 

Special Management Meal

Yield - Three Loaves

 

• 6 slices whole wheat bread, finely chopped

• 4 ounces imitation cheddar cheese, finely grated

• 4 ounces raw carrots, finely grated

• 12 ounces spinach, canned, drained

• 2 cups dried Great Northern Beans, soaked,

cooked and drained

• 4 tablespoons vegetable oil

• 6 ounces potato flakes, dehydrated

• 6 ounces tomato paste

• 8 ounces powdered skim milk

• 4 ounces raisins

 

Mix all ingredients in a 12-quart mixing bowl. Make sure all wet items are drained. Mix until stiff, just moist enough to spread. Form three loaves in glazed bread pans. Place loaf pans in the oven on a sheet pan filled with water, to keep the bottom of the loaves from burning. Bake at 325 degrees in a convection oven for approximately 45 minutes. The loaf will start to pull away from the sides of the bread pan when done.

Ahhhh...balut...was never drunk enough to hack one down. Saw a guy get it down and well...let's just say, 'give it back'...forcefully! :sick0021:

 

Too bad our 'enlightened' lawmakers don't have the stomach to run the corrections system as the Japanese do. They believe prison is PUNISHMENT, not 'rehabilitation'. No rack, sleep on a rice mat on a concrete floor...6'x6' if they're lucky, usually it's smaller. Fish head and rice gruel, EVERY meal and at a caloric intake just above the starvation level. Inmates are beaten for the most minor of rules infractions. During my 3 deployments through Okinawa I was fortunate enough to be the unit liaison with the Japanese law enforcement and dealt with them along with a lawyer whenever one of our Marines was stupid enough to get in trouble out in town and thrown in jail until we could get there and pick 'em up. Got pretty familiar with their procedures...let's just say that don't have much repeat business...only the most extremely hardened criminals show up a second or more times and they get treated increasingly worse each incarceration...

 

Yeah, that's what we need here.

That's just the point isn't it?

They are supposed to be in prison as punishment.

Rehabilitate the suckers after they have done their prison sentence. Two separate steps.
