OKC Bomber Sues Over Prison Food

Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols is asking for a court-appointed lawyer to help him with a lawsuit complaining about the food he gets in prison.

Nichols claims in his suit that the federal Supermax prison in
Colorado is causing him to "sin against God" because he doesn't
get enough whole grains and fresh food.

Nichols asked for the legal aid in a document addressed to a
federal judge in Denver on Monday.

Amy Padden of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Denver did not
immediately respond to a call seeking comment Tuesday about the
suit Nichols filed in March.

Nichols is serving life for conspiracy and involuntary
manslaughter in the 1995 federal building bombing that killed 168
people. Timothy McVeigh was convicted of murder and executed.

    Mr. T your comment was only about the babies " Wolfgang, don't forget the babies killed at WACO " Koresh is an other subject. Lets stick to your comment about the childern. Lets not divert the issue. It is the childerns parents fault to not let there own kids out of harms way. The US Government would have protected those kids much better then the Davidians. They the kids could have simply just walked out , but the Dividians chose to murder the kids who remained. The sicko's at WACO. Alice & Lina are right the kids in OK never had a chance. The picture of that big fireman holding that dead little girl. His face just saying 'WHY" why kill this little babie girl why. Not the same as WACO. Wolfgang is right we should have executed Nichols right next to McVeigh

    Linda, I've seen the video. I suggest you look it up if you can still find one. I have a copy somewhere.

    Linda, that's what they want you to believe. I have seen videotape that tells a different story. And if they wanted to arrest Koresh, he went to town every week. Why not arrest him there instead of burning down a building with INNOCENT WOMEN AND CHILDREN INSIDE?

    The Davidians for 40-50 days were told please let the childern go. They will be taken care of. The ATF has Doctors,nurses, medicine, food, fresh water, clothes, We will never hurt your childern let them go. He let go about half of them. The releast children said they where sexually abused by David. The Davidians remaining children found who died. The position of some of the childerns bodies when found bullet ballistics suggests that some of them were shot and murderd by their own Davidian people or parents guns. Linda is right in WACO the childern could just have walked out. In OK the childern never had a chance. They were all to die that morning. Because of Terry Nichols

    Mr. T the the child molester David K ? and wacko's at waco shot at the ATF first. The ATF pulled back. For days they begged David to let the kids go. Those kids could have walked out at anytime. Its is not the same those kids in Oklahoma never had a chance. McVeigh called the dead babies collateral damage Not the same Mr. T

    Wolfgang, don't forget the babies killed at WACO by the ATF, FBI, and others under orders from that shedevil Janet Reno. And who was she taking her orders from. The biggest crook of them all, SLICK WILLIE!

    Matt: I will agree with you up to a point; our freedoms do indeed get fewer in number every year. I, too, love my country, and yes, our government does need to be questioned at times. I was intrigued by one of the things you said though, and so I'm wondering: Do you pay taxes ? I ask because I know there are some folks who deliberately don't pay, claiming the government has no constitutional right to tax them. Me, I pay them; prison holds no appeal for me ! My other question: You give the impression you don't watch TV news, so what news source do you rely on ? Just curious. Regards, C

    C, you don't know who the enemy is do you. Keep watching that TV. The whole thing is way too far gone anyway. Enjoy life. Soon it will be all we have left. Don't question "your" government. Just pay those taxes and watch your freedoms go away. If I thought for 1 second this whole story was true I would be the first one to execute them both. Just too much that doesn't add up. Ohh and you're right there were children of the fed workers there that day, just not the ones of the top brass? You're mad with two people, I'm mad with the elite who new this was going to happen. Just like 911, people knew what was coming. When things like this happen it makes it a necessity for the government to make new laws to keep people safe causing freedoms to go away. I love my country but question it's government.
