Judge says California must give transgender inmates clothes and accessories

Last week California prison officials got the order that they must provide free undergarments that flatten the chest of transgender inmates at women's prisons, and give transgender inmates at men's prisons access to bracelets, earrings, hair brushes, and hair clips.

U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar issued the order in a federal lawsuit that earlier led to California becoming the first state to have taxpayer-funded sex reassignment surgery for an inmate.

The state department of corrections and rehabilitation agreed that part of the suit by inmate Shiloh Quine to give transgender inmates access to certain products. 

57-year-old Quine had sex reassignment surgery in January and was transferred from a men's facility to a women's prison in Chowchilla.

We should never forget that Quine is serving a life sentence for murder, kidnapping, and robbery. The taxpayers are paying for a murderer.

Tigar's ruling last week means that transgender female inmates in male prisons will have access to sandals, t-shirts, walking shoes, pajamas, nightgowns, robes, and scarves.

If you're in prison, you're in there for a good reason. We don't care who you are. Especially if you took another person's life, you have no rights.

Our tax money should not be going to this.
