Murderer Sues State of Connecticut over Prison Porn Ban

Murderer Sues State of Connecticut over Prison Porn Ban: globalresearch.ca

Fun fact: you’re not allowed to have porn in prison if you’re incarcerated in Connecticut.

And convicted murderer Dwight Pink Jr.—that’s a murderer’s name, right there—is fucking pissed about it.

The AP reports that Pink is suing the state of Connecticut on the basis that its porn moratorium is a violation of his constitutional rights—namely his free speech rights.

Pink maintains that guards have used the porn ban policy to deny him an art book called “The Atlas of Foreshortening.” Pink wants the book to help him learn to draw the human form. The guards won’t let him have it because it features nude models.

The state responded by saying Pink has not been harmed by the ban and none of his rights were violated.

The state’s Department of Correction put out a directive in 2011 banning all material that contains “pictorial depictions of sexual activity or nudity” from the prisons. The directive was made to improve the work environment for prison staffers who might be inadvertently exposed to pornography.

Like they aren’t all going home and looking at porn anyway.

Pink is serving a 56-year sentence for his part in the 1998 slaying of a 35-year-old father of two in Old Saybrook. Scott Rufin was shot up to five times in the head with two guns and stabbed in the heart seven times with a sword, authorities said. Pink led authorities to the skeletal remains two years after the killing, which he said was committed by another man.

Some people don’t deserve porn.
