Nice Try Louisiana

The State of Louisiana Department of Corrections failed in it's attempt to extend, by nine months, the sentence length of a prisoner who made numerous official complaints to prison officials. The State's Dept. of Corrections attempted to punish the prisoner for "spreading rumors" but relented after pressure from groups like the ACLU.

Spreading rumors?

The usual punishment for something like this would be solitary confinement or petty retribution from individual prison guards and other officials. Although I'm sure he's been getting more than a little of that too.
