New Diet Craze: Prison?

Broderick Lloyd Laswell, an inmate in an Arkansas county prison, has filed a lawsuit alleging that the Benton County Jail starves its inmates, serving only tiny portions of cold food. Laswell, who is charged with capital murder, weighed 413 pounds before his incarceration, and has dropped 105 pounds in the last eight months. Despite a lack of physical activity, Laswell claims his stomach begins growling immediately after each meal, and that he often feels dizzy and light-headed.


Jail Captain Hunter Petray states that the prison's meals average 3,000 calories per day.
