Convicted Child Murderer Wins $50,000 Lawsuit

Seems this guy Mark Allen Harris fell out of a jail van and broke his face. As a result, he feels he's suffered "inconvenience" and has lost his "enjoyment of life". HUNH????

A partial quote from the AP article running on TheDenverChannel.com says,

Monday, a jury awarded him $30,000 for past mental and physical pain and suffering; $10,000 for annoyance and inconvenience and another $10,000 for loss of enjoyment of life.

Poor suffering Mark had apparently already been convicted of murdering a 2-year-old child, and was in the judicial process phase on sexual assault charges. He has a life sentence.... and we are thinking he should enjoy it?????

This is precisely why I don't like my tax dollars supporting life sentences. It's not supposed to be fun!
