Alleged software thief Kevin Mitnick has been in solitary confinement at the Los Angeles Metropolitan Detention Center since Friday apparently for hoarding 74 cans of tuna in his cell, his lawyer said.
Officials at the LA detention center said Monday only that Mitnick was placed in solitary confinement for "security reasons."
He served eight months of that time in solitary confinement as authorities apparently feared he could still manage to hack into some device and cause the end of the world.
He probably was in a minimum security, white collar crime facility. That would make sense. A hacker in the same cell with with gang murderers doesn't.
"Right now he's actually in the cell known as "the hole" which is supposed to be used for solitary punishment. Because of overcrowding, he's been put in there with two other inmates, one of whom is a convicted child molestor serving time for DWI."
"Currently Cummings is imprisoned in the maximum wing of the prison where people with the highest bail are kept. He's with murderers and rapists. Conditions are appalling. One of the prisoners is on death row - his name is Joseph Henry and he bit off a woman's nipples and clitoris before strangling her with a slinky. These are the kinds of people the Secret Service has condemned Cummings to be with."
"he kicked Ed in the face. Ed used his previously-shattered left arm to try to protect his face. The result? He's lost several teeth, his jaw is shattered, and his arm is also completely shattered. He had surgery on both his arm and his jaw. He said "I look like Lou Albano". His jaw was so shattered, they had to "slit my throat in two places" to put the metal in to hold it back together as it mends"
Ed's cell is shaken down two more times in the next week, although no other inmates seem to be receiving this treatment. He receives an unofficial write-up for having excess paperwork and is made to remove it from the prison the next time he has visitors. The papers in question are bound transcripts of Ed's court appearances and appeals.
