Massachusetts Corrections Commissioner Harold Clarke sure is rude. And makes things too complicated.
Why do we say such things about Clarke? Well, denied inmate Michelle Kosilek’s sex change operation, and insulted the worlds
Kosilek, born Robert, has been living as a woman for fifteen years, but began taking hormones in 2006. (Here you see she obviously has a womanly air about her.)
Kosilek is currently in prison because he strangled his wife with a wire in 1990 and dumped her body at a local mall, which is definitely not normal. The crime garnered then-him a life sentence with no parole. She has since tried twice to commit suicide and to castrate herself.
A court ruled in 2002 that the prison, which would have to use state funds for the surgery, is violating Kosilek’s rights by denying a surgery. Now, rather than giving the green light, Clark’s making up excuses.
Now, one would think Clarke, who is new to the gig, would use Kosilek’s obvious instability as an excuse to deny her request.
Nope! He goes for a 50s era robot’s response.
From the horse’s mouth:
Based on my review of the designated trial testimony and my many years of experience as a corrections professional, I believe that the safety and security concerns presented by the prospect of undertaking sex reassignment surgery for Michelle Kosilek are insurmountable.
Alright. Kosilek has been living as a woman in an all male prison for fifteen years. This bitch is bad. And, no disrespect, but we wouldn’t dream of approaching her. Unsettling eyes.
As for the great trans escape – does Clarke think that one can run away after having their penis turned inside out? As for before the surgery, isn’t it the Commissioner’s job to make sure Kosilek doesn’t escape.
Add “lazy” to lede list.
