This takes the cake. The ACLU has filed a lawsuit that states that the 20 minute dining rule (they have to eat within 20 minutes of the food bring brought to the the cell) hinder certain Muslim practices. How ridiculous is this? These people are in prison. Great, they found their God. Good for the,. You don't get special treatment for that - especially in prison! http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,346291,00.html

They better get over it. A few years ago there was a muslim woman in Florida that fought because she didnt want to uncover her face for a Drivers license picture and guess what...SHE LOST! You lose privalleges in prison. If you dont like the loss then DONT COMMITT CRIMINAL ACTS!

Perhaps they should have consulted Allah before doing the crime. well...we already know He has a different spin on what constitutes a crime anyway...never mind.

Then prisoners should think twice before committing crimes so they won't have to worry about things like this. So stupid!
