"This Just In" piece reporting that a Maryland court has ordered Maine prisoner
"This Just In" piece reporting that a Maryland court has ordered Maine prisoner Deane Brown to be forcibly injected with insulin, if necessary. Brown was exiled in 2006 to solitary confinement in a supermax prison in Baltimore after he spoke out on abusive practices at the Maine State Prison. A diabetic, Brown has conducted off and on in both Maine and Maryland what he calls a "medicine strike" to protest prison conditions. The 44-year-old Brown is serving a 59-year sentence for burglary. Before his April 11 appearance in the Maryland court, Brown filed a motion in federal court asking for an injunction to prevent the Maryland Correctional Adjustment Center from treating him against his will and seeking his immediate transfer back to Maine. The federal court has not yet acted on his request. Details.
