Found this over at the Feral Irishman's site and couldn't believe it. The taxpayers are paying for a sexchange for a convicted murderer.
According to the article, this has been going on for years.
Michelle Kosilek first sued the Department of Correction 12 years ago. Two years later, Wolf ruled that Kosilek was entitled to treatment for gender-identity disorder, but stopped short of ordering surgery. Kosilek sued again in 2005, arguing that the surgery is a medical necessity.
U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf should be ashamed of himself. He should actually be removed from the bench. Where does he get the idea that this is even a option. The guy is serving a life sentence for murdering his wife.
This is what's wrong with out Country. Prisoners are not treated like prisoners any more. Weight rooms, pool tables, TV, 3 meals and some of the best health care available. Yet our returning veterans have to fight the VA system tooth and nail to get even a little help. Yeah, there's justice in this country, just as a veteran that lives under a bridge.
