Arnold Schwarzenegger

I Didn't Poison Prisoners

Arnold Schwarzenegger is NOT responsible for exposing prison inmates to a leprosy-like disease while governor ... so says The Terminator himself.

Schwarzenegger claims in new legal docs ... he is not personally responsible for an outbreak in Pleasant Valley State Prison, where spores in the soil triggered an epidemic of Valley Fever -- a disease that attacks the body's organs and leads to skin lesions, amputations and brain damage.

Arnold's being sued by inmates who claim they got sick because of his indifference -- warehousing prisoner where dangerous spores were in abundance.  

But in the court docs Arnold says he was not indifferent ... he even held a news conference acknowledging the problem.  But he says he was busy running the state and others were responsible for solving prison problems.

In essence ... Arnold is saying he's not personally responsible but if his underlings screwed up then the State might be on the hook.

Arnold's not going to care about the prison population. When was the last time you see him with a black guy? Exactly, never. Arnold knows how the world works. How do you think he became governor? Not by marrying Halle Barry that I can tell you. The Kennedy family is what put him on the political map, and one thing for sure is that they ain't black. Truth.

I just love how they named him in a civil suit instead of suing the government for it. Because you know, they care about their conditions and all. Suing a private person for their personal funds totally makes sense.

P.S. I also like how current prisoners are suing for medical costs... when it's the state that is paying for them in the first place.

Even though we are poisoned everyday w/ genetically modified foods you don't hold Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, & Obama accountable when people drop dead in their country from it or from anything else do you? I would think it's a gardeners' responsibility what seals up from soil but then again I don't know much about crops & neither do the people pointing fingers Sometimes the conspiracies of such absurdity like this leave the 1s that are on point looking just as ridiculous
