NO JOB FOR FESTUS HAGGIN

SHARE NO JOB FOR FESTUS HAGGIN

Being in charge of the jail looked so simple when Festus Haggin was doing the job on "Gunsmoke." But no longer:

- Three inmates recently sued the Mini-Cassia Jail in Idaho alleging cruel and unusual punishment after jailers refused to give them a midnight snack.- After a suspected killer fell to his death trying to escape the Camden, N.J., jail, his family filed suit. They say that Camden failed to keep a "reasonably safe" facility.

If Festus were plying the turnkey trade today, his best friend would probably be a lawyer rather than Doc Adams.
