I especially liked last month's feature "Easy to make shanks for fun and profit"

There was going to be an article on "Tossing Salad" in the next issue. I didn't even know they had a food section. I'm bummed out.

NORFOLK, Va. -- A monthly publication is suing Virginia Beach Sheriff Ken Stolle (STAH'-lee) and 10 of his employees for allegedly censoring the magazine.

Prison Legal News filed the complaint Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Norfolk. It claims that since April 2012, the sheriff's office has returned at least 67 magazines or informational brochure packets mailed to prisoners in the Virginia Beach Correctional Center. The publication claims the censorship violates its free-speech and due process rights.

Sheriff's office spokeswoman Ashley Lanteigne (lan-TAIN') says officials there are unable to comment because they haven't seen the lawsuit.

Prison Legal News reports on prisoner rights and criminal justice issues. In 2010, the publication and the state Department of Corrections settled a case involving a ban in the state prisons.

Isn't part of the punishment of being in jail losing those free speech and due process rights?
