Ah, but the kicker is, he'll probably find something in the Constitution stating he has the right to insist they give him the food he needs according to his religion. I'm sure he found this new religion while incarcerated for his crimes just as most of them do.

Considering that he has connections (though loose ones) with Elohim City, I sort of doubt that.

What kind of attorney represents cases like this?

So he had this religion all along and only complained now that the food was against his religion? If that's the case why is anyone even bothering with the whole thing?

ETA: I went back and looked at the link and it seems he revisits this protest every few years.

If you looked at the article, he's been complaining since '96. He's survived on the food this long, he should just be happy to be fed.


- you looked and I posted roughly at the same time!

He also complained that 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.
Somebody needs a dictionary for Christmas.

None, apparently. He filed the hand-written lawsuit himself.

So I guess it's OK to blow up a building with a day-care in it, killing hundred, wounding hundreds more, and mentally scaring thousands...but it's a "sin against God" to eat processed foods?

Children, the word of the day is "Hypocrite". Let's all say it together...

As an Oklahoman living in OKC, let's just say there are times when I wish we could bring back the old-fashioned firing squad.

You and me both. I was about 4-5 blocks away from it when it happened. Never forget it. Ever.

I participated in riot control training at the prison in LaGrange, KY several years ago, and lawsuits were one of the things some of the training officers talked about. According to them, one of the biggest reasons for prison lawsuits is boredom. It's a win-win-win for the inmate. They get to file the suit for free, court appearances mean a change of scenery, and if they file enough of them, one of them might actually win them a few dollars.

Sounds like he's just being a convict.

Maybe he needs a little company. I always thought his brother belonged in there with him.

They should just stop bringing him any meals and if he complains they can just tell him he wouldn't have liked what was on the menu anyway and that when he gets out of prison he can eat what he likes.

He helped kill 168 people, he's not getting out.

I realize that and thus the comment he could have whatever he wanted when he got out!

I'm not surprised. Everyone in the USA seems to be "sue happy" and the courts seem to entertain any law suit that comes before it, and in many cases, even rewards the idiot complainant.

Take that case where the woman went to McDonalds and bought coffee. She put the hot cup between her bare thighs while she was driving and ended up burning herself. She sued McDonalds and won!!!!

Then there was the case where a prisoner was allowed access to all kinds of law books, and sued the state because they weren't offering crunchy peanut butter, siting it was a human rights violation. He won too!

And please, let's not forget the judge who sued an immigrant dry cleaner for millions of dollars. Apparently the cleaners misplaced them, but later found them. He sued them claiming that they were defrauding him and for breach of promise claiming that they didn't fulfill their 1 hour promise to have his pants cleaned and returned to him. He didn't win, but he was allowed to waste the courts time with that stupid multi-million dollar law suit.

It's not just the US anymore Linda, Canadians are starting to jump on the band wagon as well and will cite anything that might give them a leg up. Unfortunately our judges make really bad calls on some of these lawsuits, i.e., the MacDonald's one for sure.

Funny how his "religious beliefs" didn't stop him from helping to kill people. Apparently, a vegetable's life is worth more to Nichols than a human life.

He's not a terrorist???? Then what's he in there for--jaywalking???

I got into an arguement with an inmate at the jail over a vegan diet. I have nothing against vegans. However people should consider before shooting into an occupied house and killing a child that they might not get all the comforts of home while in jail. But as someone else pointed out, they often sue and get their way. And anything viewed as offending a prisoner's religious beliefs (whatever their beliefs may be) can often end in a huge settlement and change in policy. At least in North Carolina...

Unfortunately victims of crime are treated worse than criminals. The criminals seem to have more rights. That says some pretty scary things about our society as a whole IMO.
