    Briton serving eight years for raping his wife fights attempt to force-feed him

    A British man convicted of raping his wife is fighting attempts by the state of Connecticut to force-feed him after 16 months of a hunger strike to protest 'a corrupt judicial system'.
    Lawyers for William Coleman, who was convicted despite no physical evidence, accused the state's corrections department of violating his right to free speech and to refuse medical treatment.
    They argued during a court hearing Thursday that Coleman, 48, is conducting the same type of peaceful protest used by the late Mahatma Gandhi, the Indian spiritual and political leader.
    'Most of us can't imagine going without food for 16 hours but here sits a man that's gone 16 months,' said William Murray, an attorney for Coleman.
    Connecticut's Department of Correction claim the state is legally obligated to ensure the inmate's physical well-being, and is seeking a permanent injunction that would allow prison staff to continue force-feeding Coleman.
    The civil trial started yesterday and is expected to last three days.
    Coleman is serving an eight-year sentence for the 2002 rape. He says he is innocent and started the hunger strike in September 2007 - two years after he was convicted without physical evidence.
    Last January, Judge James T. Graham, who presided over Thursday's session in Hartford, granted the state a temporary order allowing prison officials to force-feed Coleman when they determine his health is in danger. The injunction was supposed to last until this week's trial.
    Coleman, who has lost about 80lb, wore leg irons at the hearing and appeared pale and gaunt. During the proceedings, he scribbled notes on two legal pads and frequently smiled and blew kisses to friends sitting behind him.
    Dr. Edward Blanchette, the corrections department's clinical director, testified Coleman could damage his organs and die if he persists with the strike.
    Coleman began refusing liquids on the one-year anniversary of his hunger strike last September. Blanchette then decided to force-feed Coleman with liquids intravenously at least 10 times and later force-fed him twice using a nasal feeding tube.
    Coleman weighed 237lb when he began his strike on Sept. 17, 2007. His lawyers estimate he now weighs about 150lb. He is drinking fluids, including fortified shakes, and has not been force-fed since October.
    Coleman, a native of Liverpool, England, is the former women's soccer coach at Central Connecticut State University. He has lost several attempts to appeal his 2005 rape conviction.

    Are there ANY other crimes that can see a man locked up without a SHRED of evidence? Any?
    The most offensive thing you can do to a feminist is treat her with FULL equality.

    Exactly!

    Hmmm....So, does that mean the state is "legally obligated" to prevent prison rape from occurring?
    The death of women in childbirth hurts the men they leave behind more than the women who die.

    Domestic Violence isn't funny...unless men are the victims.

    http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/prisons.htm
    On December 31, 2007 —
    – 2,293,157 prisoners were held in federal or state prisons or in local jails – an increase of 1.5% from yearend 2006, less than the average annual growth of 2.6% from 2000-2006.
    – 1,532,817 sentenced prisoners were under state or federal jurisdiction. – there were an estimated 506 sentenced prisoners per 100,000 U.S. residents – up from 501 at yearend 2006. – the number of women under the jurisdiction of state or federal prison authorities increased 1.7% from yearend 2006, reaching 114,420, and the number of men rose 1.8%, totaling 1,483,896. At yearend 2007 there were 3,138 black male sentenced prisoners per 100,000 black males in the United States, compared to 1,259 Hispanic male sentenced prisoners per 100,000 Hispanic males and 481 white male sentenced prisoners per 100,000 white males.
    What is the problem in "the land of the free?"

    Looks like 2% of the male population is incarcerated!

    bump

    anyone else seen this?

    http://www.christianparty.net/r2000.htm

    Sixty one countries containing 3.3 billion citizens of the world reported to the UN a total of 76,040 convictions for rape and sexual assault in 1990, an average conviction rate per 100,000 population of 2.3. The US, who did not report its data to the UN, had 158,166 inmates in prison for sexual assault in 1992, an incarceration rate of 63 per 100,000 population, and a conviction rate of 16. Thanks mainly to feminist jurisprudence we already had a *conviction rate* seven times greater than the world average and 37 times greater than Italy, Greece, and Japan http://christianparty.net//worldrapeconvictions.htm by 1992. But our prison population increased two thirds since then to two million, putting a third of the men in the world behind bars in a country which contains only 4.5% of the world's population. Our sexual assault conviction rate thus skyrocketed to somewhere between 24 to 96, putting between 260,000 and 1,045,910 American men in prison for rape & sexual assault--up to two thirds of the world's sexual assault convictions!

    Our rape conviction rate is 73X higher than Japan, 50X higher than Switzerland, and 15X higher than Greece.
    http://www.christianparty.net/scheck.htm

    PROFESSOR SCHECK: Very few. Very few people have replied who were guilty pleas. Very few. They are all people that have been convicted after trial and what is interesting is that while there have been inclusions, right, the percentage -- the number of cases that finally get to the laboratory for testing, the number of exonerations far outnumbers the number of inclusions.

    Our rape conviction rate is 73X higher than Japan, 50X higher than Switzerland, and 15X higher than Greece.
    It's quite evident that in countries with a greater infestation of feminism we see a correlating high rate of rape conviction and sexual assault. These rates proliferated as definitions became all-encompassing. If the state-sponsored feminist witch-hunt continues in the same vein, the only men not in prison will be the jailers, politicians and a slave workforce!

    There is also an article there and comments about this case.

    Comments are immediately attacked by feminists and the topic pushed away with various comments that 'women have it worse'....

    OK accepting that we don’t believe that he’s on a hunger strike in the true sense, since he must be taking some form of nourishment to last more than 3 months. Also, accepting that he’s convicted without evidence beyond the wife’s statement and wants to protest his innocence by ‘hunger strike’. What are your opinions of his ‘right’ to make this protest in the first place?

    Should he wish and is capable of starving to its ultimate conclusion, should he be stopped? It is easy for us to say he must not be allowed to die. Maybe he would say that himself if the tables were turned. But only he knows all the injustice he experienced. Only he knows if he can live with any associated trauma if the injustice remains unresolved.

    If it’s that bad for him, shouldn’t he be free to express his intolerance of fatal injustice however he chooses to? Suicidal or not, unless he’s proven insane, if he feels life with this injustice is worse than death then what gives the state the right to prevent him?
