A Unique Solution to the Overcrowded Prison Problem

In South Texas, a woman weighing 1000 pounds (that's not a typo) has been arrested for capital murder. Where's she going to be incarcerated? The officials have no answer for that -- they say they'd have to remove a wall to her bedroom to get her out of there, so right now the judge has released her on a personal recognizance bond.

The mind reels at the due process considerations here. Where will the hearings be held? The trial? If she's found guilty, where will she be placed? Permanent house arrest? Looks like she's already done that to herself.

Still, I can already hear it: let's force feed other prisoners ....
