Another prison inmate is pissed off about the lack of free dental care he feels he has a right to. Embezzler, identity thief, credit card thief and most notably, convicted murderer and body dismemberer, Dennis Gaene has filed a federal lawsuit over his lack of dental care in the North Dakota State penitentiary.
Dennis wanted a root canal and a crown after he broke his tooth on a piece of shell while eating a breaded oyster. He’s claiming that pulling his tooth, instead of repairing it, violates his Constitutional rights regarding cruel and unusual punishment.
When a criminal steals an identity, murders the individual whose identity he’s stolen and then uses the murdered victims’ own credit cards to purchase various and sundry items to dispose of the victims dismembered remains, you just can’t be surprised when that same criminal expects someone else to pay for his expensive dental needs.
What is surprising, is that we as a nation allow this sort of crap to continue to clog up our judicial system and cost the taxpayer’s money.
The Maven would like to point out that a current Major insurance carrier for the employees of our Federal Government does not provide benefits for: root canals, crowns or dentures. It will, however, pay for removal of teeth. Despite the shortcomings of our government it can be stated with confidence that the majority of our Fed Employees are not murderers. That a convicted murderer should expect better health benefits than the average hard working, law abiding citizen is pure lunacy. And the legal system that entertains these asinine lawsuits from prisoners is out of whack.
