Stanford requests jail transfer; cites hot, crowded, windowless cell

HOUSTON— Texas billionaire R. Allen Stanford has filed a motion to move to a different jail, citing “oppressive” conditions at the Joe Corley Detention Facility.
(Oh no, you poor, poor thing)

Through DeGuerin, Stanford claims that for at least a week, his jail has had no air conditioning.
(Many, many homes in the Unites States don't have a/c, why the heck should a jail???)

According to the motion, there are no windows in the cell, and the conditions are intolerable.
(It's a jail for God sake!! And you obviously did something BAD to end up there )

Stanford is being held without bond while awaiting trial on charges that he swindled investors out of $7 billion.
(I rest my case)

I bet the folks he stole the $7 billion from feel oppressed too, don't you? ;)

Oh, yeah...oppression doesn't EVEN begin to cover it.

I really feel for Corley....NOT!

You made your bed, now SWEAT in it!
Too strong?
