A determined Kenyan deportee in Kansas who prefers jail to being sent back home

The authorities in Kansas are having difficulty deciding what to do with David Kihuha. He would rather stay in jail than be sent back to Kenya, as he fears violence when he returns to Kenya. He has been in the US for 13 years.

The government want to sedate him, but it is proving difficult. Previous attempts have stopped them ,as Kihuha has covered himself in his own shit,and has been known to spit and bite. The commercial airlines have declined to carry a passenger, who behaves in this way.

This guy has been segregated, and put in four different facilities, but that is still a better option for him than going home.

The government have said he is not mentally ill, and his behaviour is acceptable.

Wow, smearing oneself in your own shit is acceptable or normal?

Since when?

In which culture people?

They still want to sedate him, but some civil liberties groups say this is life threatening.

I know of people who are not given that choice in the UK, the security company usually manages to wake them up in the early hours of the morning, ie 5am, and the next day they are back in their country of origin. Here in the UK they don't mess about, and the guards show no mercy.

I have questions about his mental health.
