Federal Inmate Sues Over Discarded Sandwiches

Associated Press

October 04, 2010

LORETTO, Pa. (AP) – An inmate of a federal prison in central Pennsylvania is suing, saying he was wrongly punished for “theft” when all he did was take about 30 sandwiches that a vendor threw in the garbage while restocking a dining hall machine.

Thirty-five-year-old George Crute III, is suing officials at the Federal Correctional Institution-Loretto over the Feb. 5 incident.

Crute says he wrongly lost his “good conduct” time that would have shortened his sentence and his job as a clerk.

Prison officials contend Crute took the sandwiches out of the machine.

The Tribune-Democrat of Johnstown says a guard claims Crute ran away with a garbage bag when an officer tried to question him. Crute’s lawsuit says the sandwiches were fair game after the vendor tossed.

    This pisses me off not because this POS stole or took sandwiches....who cares.....he's a perp. It's that he is afforded the opportunity to sue the hardworking tax payer over this type of BS. Even if he loses he still costs us OUR Tax money for his appointed Attorney, and all the Court workers involved in processing this garbage. This is NOT an isolated case. There are presently THOUSANDS of BS Law suits pending and active in our courts from FELONS BEHIND BARS. This is what pisses me off !!!

    I hope they give him some " special " sandwiches from now on.
    This type of Liberal backed BS is why our Country is presently in the crapper. " They have rights " ......blah balh blah blah. It sickens me that they get better treatment than homeless people with real mental illnesses. These criminals should get what they give and nothing more.

    AGAIN......... THE LIBERAL GROUPS LIKE THE ACLU AND THE LIBERAL POLITICIANS CAUSED THIS TYPE OF BS. VOTE THEM OUT IN NOVEMBER !!!!! BELIEVE ME .......IT CAN GET MUCH MUCH WORSE. LIBERALS CALL IT " CHANGE " !
