Posted:

John Leopold, former Anne Arundel County, Md., executive, serving 30 days in jail for illegally forcing his government security detail and another employee to run personal errands, apparently wasted no time in March showing a similar attitude toward his jailers. He quickly demanded the jailers serve him a breakfast of Cheerios, skim milk, bananas and orange juice instead of the scheduled fare. Last year, Anders Breivik, imprisoned 2011 mass murderer of 77 in Norway, famously began a hunger strike when rebuffed over his 27-page list of demands, including Internet access and menu and climate-control improvements.
