Kyle Richards Sues Michigan, Claiming Constitutional Right to Porn in Jail

He has two previous convictions for assault, and has been in the jail since January on a bank robbery charge. But since the jail won't allow him to have porn, a personal TV, video game consoles or a radio, he suffers.
Yes, dearest reader, he suffers.
In a suit against the state, he claims that doing without such necessities amounts to "psychological warfare against prisoners, in order to both destroy the morale of inmates and break the spirit of individuals."
It's not that Michigan prisons are porn free. State institutions allow both Playboy and Penthouse. But Macomb doesn't allow visual depictions of naked ladies. Or Xbox. That means Richards must endure "such a poor standard of living, suffering from both sexual and sensory deprivation."
Such are the tribulations of robbing a bank in a sexually modest county.
No one believes the suit will get too far. Our moron has already had three previous suits deemed frivolous. We're guessing Macomb's porn ban won't reach the threshold of great constitutional questions of our time.
