This is bullshit. The dude should be released and cleared of all charges. After that, I need him to put up a Facebook Live stream when he finally poops. It’s gonna be incredible. It’s either gonna be a diamond or a riverbed. There’s no in-between. Just an incredible display of self-control that should be rewarded with freedom and privacy.
Can he make it to 40 days? Only time will tell. (Spoler: He Did)
