Only in Massachusetts would the state prison system consider paying for sex change operation for a convicted murderer (we're already paying for his hormone treatments), or providing oxen and camel meat for a Nation of Islam inmate.
The man who wants taxpayers to pay for his sex change strangled his wife to death in 1990. We don't know the crime of the man who demanded (and won!) camel meat, but he's serving a 13-year sentence at a maximum security prison.
Whiskey tango foxtrot? I'm not pleased that my states taxes are being used for these things, or for the lawsuits and court cases to decide this. The prisons and the courts are being played.
