I have a feeling that I should stat handing out Idiot Awards!


ColoWeb Idiot Award Goes To .... an Inmate who sues the Jail For His Escapes.

DENVER -- An inmate who twice escaped from the Pueblo County jail filed a federal lawsuit Thursday, alleging that guards abused him and didn't do enough to stop him from breaking out.

Scott Anthony Gomez, Jr. alleges that guards have sprayed him with pepper spray, shot him with a stun gun, and beaten and kicked him without provocation. He also claims that employees of the Pueblo County sheriff's department got other inmates to assault him.

The suit in U.S. District Court in Denver was filed against Pueblo County, former sheriff Dan Corsentino, current sheriff Kirk Taylor, six guards and their supervisors. A sheriff's spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to a message left afterhours and there was no listed telephone number for Corsentino, who left office last January.

I thought you meant you were gonna name "CD idiots". *confused*

So what the lawsuit is saying is guards can't even do their jobs right without the risk of getting sued? What the heck?! Absolutely absurd!
