No Porn=Cruel And Unusual Punishment?

LANSING (WWJ) - Michigan Governor Rick Snyder and the state of Michigan are the target of a lawsuit filed by a Macomb County inmate.

Twenty-one-year-old Kyle Richards claims cruel and unusual punishment because the Macomb County Jail does not allow inmates to possess pornographic materials.

In a handwritten lawsuit, Richards claims his civil rights are being violated. He says denying his request for erotic material subjects him to a “poor standard of living” and “sexual and sensory deprivation.”

The Michigan Department of Corrections says that prisons allow some pornographic material, though it’s banned at the jail. The American Civil Liberties Union says prisons have a lot of leeway.

Richards was charged with bank robbery after police followed a trail of snowy footprints and dropped money to his apartment from a bank robbery scene in January in Fraser.

There’s been no comment on the lawsuit from the governor’s office.

Maybe he should just plead guilty to his charges and go to prison so he can have his porn.

I don't think civil rights include porn

I don't think even Sarah Palin thinks that's in The Constitution

Well, for a 21 year old male, maybe denial of pron is cruel and unusual punishment!

For some, cruel and unusual punishment is a type of porn

Well, indeed (bottom post, page 1):

Murdoch empire in crisis

Being forced to read the News of the World constitutes cruel and unusual punishment to me!

Surely some activist judge can find an hitherto undiscovered "right" to porn in the Constitution. Shop around Kyle.

if he were asking for religious materials, I am sure he would have many more defenders

I actually think that's an interesting point, deep.

What say you, FYM?

I say, same diff. He'd probably have access to religious materials in prison eventually. Personally I don't have a problem with inmates somehow "earning" religious stuff or even porn I suppose. In jail, not so much.

Here's a serious question...

I assume he wants the porn in order to gratify himself......If that's so, why does he need porn? aren't fantasies and imagination enough? This way he can be alone with himself and not have to run the risk of having materials confiscated, etc.

Ehm, he's a guy? 21 years old? What guy at that age doesn't rely on porn to get off?
