Would violate an inmate's right's? Are you kidding me dist. atty. s. cooley? What about MARSALEE NICHOLAS'S RIGHT'S? What about her right to live a peacefull life? What about her right to get an education and be a success? What about her right to be a positive influence to her community? Oh that's right your more worried about the right's of some dreg of socieity's right to be a burden to the community. Your more worried about some turd's right to cost the tax payer's million's of dollars because he want's to sue the state because he didnt get ketchup with his hamburger. What is it with you liberal idiot's in CA.?
