    New Mexico Man pulled over for alleged DUI. Never given trial. Instead, placed in solitary confinement for 22 months. He was neglected so long that his toenails grew so long that they curled around his foot.

    they ruined a man and lost $15 million in tax payer dollars and no one was prosecuted or even fired. If this had happened to me, and no one involved was punished for stealing two years of my life and a chunk of my sanity, you can bet your ass a large portion of that $15 million would be spent finding creative ways of making them all suffer the slow and steady loss of everything they hold dear.

    This was my first thought, I'd go back for years after the beating I would lay down upon returning home.

    He'd better not be a moron and share any of his money with them. I'd throw his ass back in the cell if he did. :jj:

    By then, he was probably referred to as Inmate #4393929 and regarded as "the thing in cell 87A." :facepalm:
