DU student law team vs. the United States
Posted by Reid on June 4, 2007
A team of University of Denver law students has stepped up to the big leagues early, arguing in federal court against government limits on prisoners’ free speech.
Interesting… I am not sure if you guys feel the same way. But I think if you are in prison, there are certain “rights” you loose since you chose to commit a crime against society.
Jordan “has no avenue left to express his thoughts and ideas,” student attorney Jack Hobaugh argued. The federal rule, he said, “is an irrational and exaggerated response” to concerns that inmates reporting on prison life could disrupt order and threaten security.
I personally think he can journal who is stopping him, but to make a profit? He needs to wait until he gets out of prison to be able to exercise all of his rights again. I don’t feel sorry for him AT ALL
Until then prisoners need to keep making our license plates and such for FREE and any sort of productivity and profit that could come from them should be used to offset the need to use taxes used to run the prisons. They committed a crime against society, they should help pay for their “downtime”…
I am embarrassed that this is coming out of Colorado
