Cruel and unusual punishmnet- Prisoners subjected to Christmas songs without relief

Jail bosses in Maricopa County, Arizona, have started playing a selection of Christmas music and hymns into the prisons continuously, and will continue to do so for the rest of the holiday period.

If that won't drive some people to commit homicide nothing will.

While they say the annual tradition is intended to give "a little Christmas cheer" to the incarcerated crooks, many of the prisoners claim it is an added punishment.

Some have even filed lawsuits claiming cruel and unusual punishment and forced participation in religious celebrations - we guess it all depends on how often they play Cliff.

The sheriff's office has said it expects courts to dismiss the lawsuits.
