Inmate being “starved”…to life, in my opinion

Apparently, an Arkansas inmate awaiting trial on murder charges is complaining that jail food has caused him to lose weight – over 100 pounds, in fact.  He is now down to a svelte 308 pounds.  He is, logically, suing the county jail in a federal law suit, complaining that the jail is starving him by only serving, on average, 3,000 calories a day.  Is there a fundamental right to be fat?  I’m thinking Constitution says no.  This guy is arguably healthier by losing the weight – overweight rich people would pay dearly for these kind of results and he has the nerve to sue!  Those crazy inmates.

I predict all kinds of diet-promotional tie ins (if they don’t already exist).  Ladies, tired of trying to lose that 100 pounds with no success?  Try the prison diet that’s sweeping the nation!  It’s like “boot camps” – but for reals.
