I'm just guessing, but I think this may only be the start of this inmates future fun-filed days behind bars!
Seems like even the bad guys have their own ideas of punishment for some offenders, and this particular inmate may just wish he had stayed i Honduras before it's all over with!
Try as I may, I somehow can't feel sorry for this guy!
Inmate needed stitches after attackBy PAIGE HEWITT

A Harris County jail inmate awaiting trial for murder beat up a young illegal immigrant accused of robbing and fatally shooting a 14-year-old girl in the back as she was walking home Aug. 6.
Melvin Alvarado, 22, one of two men charged with capital murder in the death of Shatavia Anderson, was beaten Thursday evening, sustaining serious enough injuries that he required a trip to a hospital and stitches, said Alan Bernstein, with the Harris County Sheriff's Office.
Alvarado is in the U.S. illegally and has been twice deported.
Accused in Alvarado's beating is Robert Williams, 38, Bernstein said.
A volunteer inmate crew at the county jail on San Jacinto entered Alvarado's cell about 5:30 p.m. Thursday to clean it during the one hour he is allowed out of it daily.
Williams "pushed his way" inside the cell and assaulted Alvarado for "a few moments," Bernstein said.
A detention officer pulled Williams off Alvarado, but not before Williams beat him, leaving him with cuts, swelling, bruising and injuries to a right eye and left ear, Bernstein said. He was unsure which particular injury required sutures or how many were required.
Alvarado was taken to LBJ Hospital for treatment; Bernstein was unsure if Alvarado's care required him to stay overnight or when he returned to the jail.
Alvarado was back in a cell Saturday — at a different jail, on Baker — and treated in the medical unit there, he said.
The Harris County District Attorney's Office did not bring charges against Williams because he already is facing a higher-level murder charge, Bernstein said.
Williams will, however, face the jail system's in-house discipline, under which he could lose credit for good time served, commissary privileges and visitation, Bernstein said.
Also charged in the girl's murder is Jonathan Lopez-Torres, 18, a native of Honduras and a lawful resident of the U.S.
Shatavia's family earlier this week publicly called for tighter restrictions on immigration.
The girl, who would have been a freshman at Nimitz High, was discovered the morning of Aug. 7 in a field adjacent to the apartments where she lived in the 1100 block of Langwick.
Maybe the courts will start to catch on that sending some prisoners to jail in Texas is a good way to help them see the errors of their ways! But then, maybe not!
I hope he heals fast, because like I said...I think this is only the beginning!
How about some coffee in the kitchen? Too darn hot outside!
