Oklahoma City bombing co-conspirator Terry Nichols sues over his diet
Daily Oklahoman ^ | March 28, 2009 | Nolan Clay

Posted on 03/28/2009 10:00:47 AM PDT by Zakeet

Oklahoma City bombing co-conspirator Terry Nichols is complaining about his diet again — this time in a handwritten federal lawsuit seeking more than $2 million.

He claims the food he gets in federal prison in Colorado violates his religious rights. He also claims the "indifference” of prison officials to his medical needs is cruel and unusual punishment.

Nichols complained that he "is compelled to consume daily those unhealthy dead and refined foods that are abhorrent to plaintiff’s sincerely held religious beliefs causing him physical, mental and spiritual torment, and to sin against God.”

He wrote that he sincerely believes that God created mankind to consume unrefined whole foods. He wrote that he is forced to sin against God by eating refined foods that destroy "His holy temple ... my body.”

He is demanding 100 percent whole-grain foods, more fresh raw vegetables and fresh fruit, a wheat bran supplement, and digestive bacteria and enzymes. He wrote that his religious beliefs and requests "are not absurd, unorthodox, nor costly.”

He wrote he has been dealing with chronic constipation, bleeding and hemorrhoids for more than 30 years.

His complaints about food in the past have angered victims of the 1995 attack who have said he does not deserve special treatment. In 1996, before his federal trial, he refused to stand four times for inmate counts to protest that he wasn’t getting whole-wheat bread. In 2001, before his state trial, he fasted for almost six days to protest his food at the jail.

His 39-page lawsuit was filed in federal court in Denver March 16.

He also complained that because of his conviction for the bombing, prison employees have discriminated against him. He wrote that he has been stereotyped by the Bureau of Prisons, the court and the media as being a terrorist. "Mr. Nichols is not a terrorist,” he wrote.

Since his trials, Nichols has admitted to the FBI, his family, a U.S. congressman and others that he helped bomber Tim McVeigh gather components for the fertilizer bomb and that he helped build the bomb in the back of a rented truck.

I need 100 percent whole-grain foods, more fresh raw vegetables and fresh fruit, a wheat bran supplement, and digestive bacteria and enzymes because I have been been dealing with chronic constipation, bleeding and hemorrhoids for more than 30 years.

These problems have gotten much worse ever since the evil guards moved me in with Big Bubba.

$2 million will greatly ease my pain.

ahhh... poor baby.. I think God gave up on that ‘temple’ a long time ago buddy, might as well treat it as the dump that you turned it into when you took part in killing others.

He needs to spill the beans on the whole episode including all of McVeigh’s buddies.

I’m surprised they’re not feeding him better considering that he’s keeping his mouth shut about the other embarrassing details about the bombing.

Could this be a little ploy to make us conspiracy theorists doubt our assumptions?

He probably prefers organically grown food. Perhaps that would explain why he wanted to destroy so munch synthetic fertilizer.

Ah there ya go,
tin foil alert, tin foil alert.

Just kidding.
Why were ALL the security videos of what happened there confiscated by the feds and never shown?
Does any thinking person think McVeigh did it all by his lonesome?
Anyone trust the govt on this one?

Though I don't believe that the FBI/BATF were involved, I'd guess that it took more than two to tango on this episode.

Nichols still has a lot of 'splainin' to do.

Yeah me too - I’m waiting for the posters who say he’s found religion and has been forgiven. Great, wonderful - forgiveness is between him and God - not me. I’m not part of that equation.

No I don’t believe they did it alone - but he did it - and didn’t give up the others so he can suffer alone.

Your dead on ! I didn’t like what happened at waco no more than the next person but these idiots shotgun approach to the problem was a sin, was doing same thing that feds did to innocents at waco. Feds had days , months to arrest the criminals they sought at waco on the streets of that town .

They created a hostage event, they forced the deaths of children at the hands of idiots on both sides of the event.

Haha - well I am sorry you are such a coward - if you truly believe it was a bigger job then you should be able to support your comments. I said I believe there were others involved and I wish McVey and Nichols had ratted them out.

You wrote as if you had a deep conviction about who was involved. How pathetic that you feel the need to attack me when I asked you to explain.

He’s not compelled to eat it. He can take it or leave it. I’d prefer he leave it till he starves to death.

My diet is a reasonably healthy one. I consume many of the items he requests.

I hereby volunteer to send him a daily sandwich packed with my SH!T. I feel good that “it” is recycled and this is a worthy cause.

Chronic constipation? Terry, we all knew you were full of crap. Thanks for admitting it.

I would suggest he be given as many fruits from the nightshade family as possible...from all members of that family, not just eggplants and tomatoes.

Well, there was the muslim they never caught and then decided never existed in the first place, while no-one had any reason in their wildest imagination to suppose McVeigh had any ties to Muslims...

...then we find out that McVeigh essentially snapped when he was in the Iraq war literally plowing down Muslims, and that he spouted a lot of anti-American rhetoric, which people forgot about by the time we learned about Al Qaeda.

No, I’m not tying McVeigh to bin Laden. But he was getting a lot of similar ideas from similar sources.
