Inmate: Ahnold's Neglect Left Me Crippled

10/16/2008 3:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A man in Wasco State Prison in Cal. is suing the Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger, because the guy claims he's developed a debilitating disease in lockdown and blames Arnie for not getting proper medical attention.
Arnold Schwarzenegger: Click to view the docs!
In a hand-written lawsuit filed yesterday in L.A. Superior Court, Terry Alexander claims he's developed "valley fever" -- which is a real disease -- because of the location of the Wasco prison. Terry says he filled out medical papers and even asked for a transfer -- but never received one -- and due to the neglect he's now confined to a "wheelchair for life."

Terry's suing for $100,000 -- and we're guessing he's gonna want that transfer too.

If this is the only disease he (ahem) contracts while in prison, he should be happy.

Democrats are evil    

How about that. You even have democrats in prison blaming others for their own prison problems. Wasco is a nice town. The A & W has great root beer floats. I hope this con meets a nice guy in the pen who can give him a ride on that old road in Wasco called the good old mud highway. Drive it home Bubba. This road is best traveled as a democrat for they advocate this highway for everyone even if they refuse to get a license. As for Arnold, he's an idiot and deserves all the crap that is directed his way. Worst Governor Ca. has ever had. Arnold should take a drive on this road also. What am I thinking? He probably already has.

Awww, poor prisoner. I wonder whose fault it is that he's IN PRISON to start with? And if he's confined to a wheelchair for life, well, then he can't break into my house and rape my dog. YAY!! Send more prisoners there!!!

We have senior citizens without enough to eat, families losing their homes, people without jobs, and some meathead who got himself locked up is suing? Insert head in prison toilet. Flush. Repeat.

this dude is in prison for some thing....he and other prisoners should be allowed minimum medical attention....there are law abiding citizens who have no home, no medical insurance and no food...its a shame when a prisoner is housed, given three square meals a day and a bed to sleep in at night & free mediacal......its the homeless and uninsured that should be suing the gov. let this guy rot for all i care.

Funny, when I looked up "Valley Fever" at the Mayo Clinic website, I didn't read anything that suggested a wheelchair being required. Seems that VF is a lung disease, which can be treated with antifungal meds.

from:
http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/valley-fever/DS00695

Mild cases of valley fever usually go away on their own. In more severe coccidioidomycosis infections, doctors prescribe antifungal medications that can treat the underlying infection.

as to number 11's comment, I agree, this prisoner shouldnt get any special treatment, BUT VF is deadly, I was raised in KERN county where VF is famous and has taken many lifes. My nrother for one is a 2 times Kidney transplant Patient recently moved back to ugly Bakersfield/aft and developed VF, he had this when he was small but he got infected again and was in the hopital and almost died he was in ICU, he thought he was ill with the flu, it is very deadly and serious and is no laughing matter!! A young girl in ICU next to him was rushed in to ICU she was 26 healthy and beautiful, she had fainted, Come to find out she had vallye fever and didnt know it. the infection attacks your brain and your organs, so dont think its not serious.

Just because someone is in prison it does not mean they are a bad, disgusting, evil person. It means they made a mistake and are paying for it greatly. Given there are those demented, psychos in Prison too. But I highly doubt any of you people have lived your life without breaking the law atleast once, whether it was a traffic law or criminal, you are just the same as them, only difference, they got caught. As for them getting treated better than homeless people, thats not necessarily true. The medical treatment they receive, they also have to pay for. They also pay for their food and housing through inmate programs and paying taxes. Don't judge people!!
