Sorry buddy. In federal prison they expect you to follow the rules and if you don't they will take the appropriate action. You can count on it. They treat all the convicted felons the same way. Get used to it.

If Mr. Tim DeChristopher thinks he is going to get special treatment he is sadly mistaken. The only sad thing about this story is that his sentence wasn't longer.

If a congressman from Utah can dictate what sort of treatment a inmate gets, he is no longer a inmate. He is a political prisoner. Who is the congressman?

"If a congressman from Utah can dictate what sort of treatment a inmate gets, he is no longer a inmate. He is a political prisoner."

Semi-careful reading of the story indicates that "a congressman complained about an email the 30-year-old jailed activist sent to some of his supporters". Complaining is a 1st Amendment right. Prison officials are the ones who dictate punishments for violations of prison rules.

Tim DeChristopher is a convicted criminal who is being treated exactly the same way as everyone else who steps out of line while serving his time.
