And His Religion Told Him To Sell Drugs, Too,..

We just don't get it. What part of "this asshole is in prison" doesn't anyone understand?
A Sikh inmate in a San Luis Obispo prison is suing the state Department of Corrections, alleging that he was unfairly disciplined for refusing to trim his beard in adherence to his religion.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California filed the lawsuit on behalf of Sukhjinder (sook-JIN'-der) Basra on Friday.

Basra, who is serving time at the California Men's Colony for a drug offense, claims that guards told him he violated a rule prohibiting inmates from growing facial hair longer than a half inch. As punishment Basra said he was ordered to perform extra prison duties, spend 10 days confined to his bunk, and lost 30 days of credit for good behavior.
