Convicted murder Phil Spector had a dental appointment today. He was allowed to leave the prison with a security detail to see a private dentist instead of seeing the prison dentist. The California Department of Corrections allows inmates with the “financial means” to do this as long as they pick up the bill for security and transportation. I suppose one could argue that this rule is actually a good one since it does save the taxpayers money (& CA is in financial crisis).
One could argue that. I’m of the opinion this is a fucking disgrace! :mad: This is utterly disgusting. The man’s a convicted murderer serving a fucking life sentence and because he’s rich he’s allowed to literly buy better treatment for himself? What’s next? Letting him have his meals sent in from a caterer? Rent a deluxe private cell? Maybe they should let his servants accompany him to wait on him in prison like imprisoned nobles of old. Fuck that. His fucking high priced lawyers (costing far beyond most defendents means) couldn’t keep his sorry ass out of prison so now he get’s to throw is money around 'cause the prison clinic isn’t up to his fucking standards!? Gee maybe California could just give it’s wealth citizens the option to pay a huge fine (for murder) instead of going to prison. What’s a fair fine to get out of a life sentence?
