Earlier this week a Mass Judge actually approved a taxpayer-funded sex-reassignment surgery to a transgender inmate serving life in prison for murder. Here is another reason why I no longer live in Mass. The locals are pissed that a Judge has actually approved this. This is absolutely insane! It’s bad enough that tax payers are already paying for their 3 meals a day and their board so now they have to cough up more money for this looooosaaah’s surgery.
The inmate named Robert Kosilek was convicted of murder for killing his wife in 1990. Robert is now known as Michelle Kosilek, has been receiving hormone treatments since 2003 and lives as a woman in an all-male prison. This case has been going on for over 10 years. U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf is believed to be the first federal judge to order prison officials to provide sex-reassignment surgery for a transgender inmate. Judge Wolf said that denying Kosilek the surgery was a violation of the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment. Prison officials opposed the operation, saying they couldn’t provide security for Kosilek were he to receive a sex change — an argument Judge Wolf described as “pretextual.”
Eighth Amendment my ass. He lost that right when he killed his wife. It’s pretty sad that prisoners are so protected and the legal system is worried about their rights. Didn’t they give up those rights when they committed a crime like killing their spouse. Isn’t this considered elective surgery and not medically necessary? I just don’t get it. Why would a judge would approve this. It seems other inmates have tried to sue to have this surgery done but have failed.
What do you think? Should the judge have granted this dirt bag's wish?
