Cruel and Unusual Punishment

According to a recent news report, a convicted murderer being detained at state penitentiary in Massachusetts is suing the Department of Corrections for a sex change operation. The man, Robert Kosilek (who calls himself Michelle) says he will commit suicide if he doesn’t become a woman. And, a psychiatrist has backed him up on this, claiming that Kosilek has a “gender identity disorder.” Moreover, because he is a guest of the state, he claims that it is the state’s responsibility to pay for this procedure.

Of course, his contention is that by not providing him with the operation, the Correction Department is engaging in “cruel and unusual punishment,” which is outlawed by the Constitution. The state has provided him with hormone therapy, laser hair removal, and psychotherapy, but they have stopped short of the surgery saying that he will be at risk if he stays at the state pen for men, but, if he is moved to the women’s penitentiary, he will be a risk to the women. (I doubt that, but he is serving a life sentence for strangling his wife.)

In my expert medical opinion, this guy is not suffering from any sort of psychological issues. In fact, he must have the biggest set of you-know-what in the world to be able to go public and tell the world he wants to be a woman while he’s living in a prison. Can you imagine the terrible things other inmates would do to him? I’m guessing that he’s been separated because of this.

I don’t mean to degrade the guy. Let him do whatever he wants, but don’t make tax payers pay for it! This would not happen in Texas. I can bet that if some convicted killer ever asked for a sex change that the other inmates would be happy to do it themselves—free of charge. If they didn’t do it, the guards would or some local sheriff. This would never have gone to court. Since gay marriage was made legal in Massachusetts, every freak and weirdo has come running to get their cases heard by the liberal courts.

It doesn’t cost me any extra money in my taxes if two men want to marry. What does cost me money is when some legal loophole seeker thinks he can take advantage of the system. My guess is he doesn’t want to be in the general population at Walpole State Pen, and he knows they’ll have to separate him forever after this because he will get killed if they put him back now.

Here’s what I think we should do… Let the U.S. military use his genitals for target practice. With some luck and a couple of 500-pound bombs, they’ll blow him to bits, and he can join Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi in hell. And Satan, Hitler, and Jerry Garcia can take turns showing them a good time.

And remember, if there’s grass on the field, put up a tent, throw some steaks on the barbeque, and play some two-hand touch football with the sorority girls having a carwash across the street.
