Here in the United States anyone can sue anyone else for any reason or no reason at all. Case in point, as reported by The Telegraph:
Jason Paul Indreland, who is serving a three-year sentence at the Yellowstone County state prison for drug possession, claims jailers confiscated a medallion that is a “protective symbol” in his religion. Indreland says
He has been a practising Satanist for the past decade.
The lawsuit claims jail staff refused to return the medallion or allow Indreland access to a “Satanic Bible or Book of Satanic Rituals”.
The suit alleges that Yellowstone County jail staff placed “Christian greeting cards under (his) cell door,” that said “Jesus was ready to save and accept him”.
The lawsuit also alleges that Indreland was denied medical care for his drug addiction, that he was placed in violent situations and that he suffered harassment and retaliation while incarcerated.
Indreland initially filed the handwritten federal lawsuit last March while he was still held at the jail. The lawsuit names as defendants the Yellowstone County Board of Commissioners, Sheriff Chuck Maxwell, Undersheriff Jay Bell and Sheriff’s Capt. Dennis McCave, who oversees county jail operations.
The lawsuit seeks $3 million for alleged civil-rights violations, $2 million for “the deprivation of his rights and injuries both mental and physical,” and $5 million in punitive damages.
County officials said they have not seen the lawsuit and could not comment.
Personally, I really don’t care how prisoners are treated. They are PRISONERS for crying out loud.
This guy (and the situation) and the cocksuckers in Oakland are some of the real problems in our society. Oh yeah, and Wall Street and…

wow very nice

Oh dear. Sometimes, we really do live in a sick society these days.
As an authorized spokesperson and member of the clergy of the Church of Satan I am writing to respond to the articles about the inmate suing the prison in order to be allowed to practice “Satanism.” It is important to note that the Church of Satan prohibits all illegal activity, and only very rarely supports any criminal’s request for membership. In my tenure with the organization I have seen several members excommunicated for illegal activity, and not a single inmate granted membership.
In this case the criminal deserves no assistance from the Church of Satan, nor will the organization support his alleged rights. If he is looking for forgiveness and welcome he’d do better by the Christian religions that practice mercy—we don’t.
As far as the Church of Satan is concerned this inmate is not a Satanist and we will not have our religion attached to such a ridiculous and shameful attempt at avoiding responsibility. Our rules are clear. He has broken them. Now he must face the consequences.
