    Canadian prisoner, too fat for cell, released early

    Canadian prisoner, too fat for cell, released early


    OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian prison authorities were forced to release a 450-pound (205 kg) drug gang member this week because he was too large for his cell, the Journal de Montreal newspaper reported on Wednesday.

    Michel Lapointe -- known as Big Mike -- was arrested in September 2006 and received a five-year sentence in May this year. The paper said he could not fit on the chair in his Montreal prison cell and when he went to bed, his body protruded six inches on either side.

    A letter from the authorities to Lapointe said: "You have been detained for more than 25 months and your prison conditions are difficult because of your health".

    The authorities also cited the refusal of two other facilities to accept the 37-year-old. He was freed late on Tuesday.

    "I'm going to have a proper bed and finally have a chair I can sit in," he told the paper outside the prison.
    "I want a normal life. I've done some stupid things and I've paid for them," he said.

    So the next time an obese suspect appears before a Canadian judge the trial will simply be abandoned....

    Perhaps if Jet sends him a letter, he might prefer to stay in prison.

    Obviously feeding him too well. They should send him to a prison farm and make him work in the fields all day.

    ^Yea, and feed him only a small amount of bread and water daily, like they did "cool hand luke",, then the phat phucker would soon have fit in his bed.

    Bet you the plumber who had to continously unblock his cell toilet was happy upon his release as well.

    But really how does one put on weight in prison or even maintain that weight (205kg) and when so obese.

    Bet you that fat bastartd ate all the prison pies.

    maybe sucking a lot of dick, but they say that there is protein but no calories in cum, so maybe not, might have been a lardass when they sent him up.

    Not necessarily Gerbil, it depends on the falling height. If they let you fall 1+ meter you should break your neck immediately and thus die rather painless regardless of your weight. But if they hang you without that proper distance it's death by strangulation where you could break the rope by hanging there long enough. At least that's what I've heard.
    (remember Saddam Husseins brother ? That was too big falling distance)

    ^ I have also heard that,, a good hangman figures the weight and falling distance is set at a certain length to get a good hanging.

    well if there is such a thing..
