Sheriff: No Floss For Inmates

10.18.12 10:53 AM

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., (UPI) –* A Florida sheriff said jail inmates will not be supplied with dental floss, despite four lawsuits filed by inmates.

Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said he will not give in on the issue, despite four lawsuits from inmates who want floss to be available in the jail commissary and are seeking damages for “pain and suffering,” the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Thursday.

“I don’t care if they file 400 suits, they’re not getting it,” Bradshaw said. “You’re not the mayor. This isn’t the Ritz-Carlton.”

Bradshaw said dental floss is not allowed in the jail because it can be easily turned into a weapon or a rope.

“We’re not going to give them something that could easily be turned into something else,” he said.
