And it would still be asinine.

Why don't you regale us with your tales of working with inmates with prosthetics? Go ahead, I can tell you of 5 individual cases I've seen inmates use their prosthetics to injure another prisoner or staff. A very good friend of mine lost her eye. I have seen it first hand as the treating provider. You don't have a farking clue what you're talking about, you just want to lash out at the government and you don't give a fark about the damage that these poor helpless souls can do to nurses, social workers, lawyers, you know.. The people actually caring for them instead of being internet tough guys who spouts bullshiat becuase he's too clueless or too inured of criminal thought to stop and think for one minute about the safety of others.

A few points to make here.
1. The jail had nothing to do with him missing his arms
2. Prosthetic arms are not very functional, he's not playing a piano or juggling with those things. He's really not missing a while lot of function without the prosthetics
3. Safety and common sense come before your precious little feelings.

Just because he matter terrible choices in life, he does not have the right to put other people's lives in danger

I feel a complete lack of giving a f*ck about this creep's plight. He was an obnoxious, swaggering bastard in the UK who was up to no good and he took advantage of the limp-dicked system in the UK, and now he's getting a hard, hard lesson that we don't put up with bullsh*t like his on this side of the pond.

Enjoy your waterboarding, asshat!

I'm not convinced. If a prisoner has something that could be used as a weapon, it's taken from them. And, based on what I read, they're making him a new arm that has fingers that can't as readily be used as a weapon.

I don't really have a problem with any of this (though I do think they should make HIM pay for the prosthetic arm if he is able to do so.

I'm pretty much at the head of the line when it comes to calling bullshiat on thugs with badges when they abuse their power, but in this case I'm (mostly) OK with this. A metal hook on a prosthetic arm IS a weapon, and I don't care if you're in jail for terrorism or jaywalking, it presents a danger to other prisoners and yourself.

They need to get him non-dangerous prosthetic arms in a very expeditious manner, and treat him with basic human dignity, but yeah until that happens allowing sharp metal hooks in the secure area is a Very Bad Idea.

DammitIForgotMyLogin: GAT_00: Also, I'm pretty sure any definition of 'cruel and unusual' punishment includes depriving prisoners of prosthetics.

You realise they're making him a new set which actually resemble hands, and not offensive weapons, right?

You realize he has the prosthetics for part of the day, right? And just how retarded have we become as a country where people look at taking away prosthetics from prisoners and going "Yep, that's not cruel at all."
