Benton County Inmate Says He's Not Getting Enough Food

Man Files Suit After Weight Drops From 413 Pounds To 308 Pounds



FAYETTEVILLE - A Benton County inmate claims he's wasted away from 413 pounds to 308 in the eight months he's been in jail and he's making a federal case out of it.

Broderick Lloyd Laswell filed a prisoner civil rights lawsuit, without a lawyer, Friday in U.S. District Court in Fayetteville. He claims the jail doesn't provide inmates with enough food.

"On several occasions I have started to do some exercising and my vision went blurry and I felt like I was going to pass out," Laswell wrote in his complaint. "About an hour after each meal my stomach starts to hurt and growl. I feel hungry again."

Laswell claims he's lost about a half-pound a day.

"If we are in a small pod all day do next to nothing for physical exercise we should not lose weight," according to Laswell. "The only reason we lost weight in here is because we are literally are being starved to death."

Laswell further complains the portion sizes vary.

"There are noticeable differences on the size of biscuits and cakes, as well as the sides," according to Laswell, who also wants hot meals to be served from the jail's kitchen.

The Benton County Jail has served only cold food for years. The meals, provided through Aramark Correctional Institution Services, average 3,000 calories a day, according to Jail Capt. Hunter Petray.

Lawyers for capital murder defendant Manuel Enrique Camacho, who has been awaiting trial for almost two years, complained to a judge recently that he has lost significant weight while in the jail, going from 155 pounds to 118.

Urgent news: you are in PRISON, not in a hotel.

Life is so gloriously improbable

Un-be-lie-va-ble.

In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Re: Benton County Inmate Says He's Not Getting Enough Food

I can understand the inmate who says that he lost almost 40 pounds to about 118.

For this retard, a 3000 calorie diet is 600-800 calories more than the average 2200-2400 calorie diet.
This man probably needs 5000-6000 calories to sustain a 400 pound weight.

That's not healthy and he lost his privilege of eating like that once he went to jail.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."

Something needs to change.
