are kept barely alive on a starvation diet of 3000 calories a day click here Only in the US...

I'm surprised no one has done this in the UK and we all know what the result would be, human rights lawyers making a bomb, more food and of course compensation for the prisoner.

Meanwhile his victims family would get -- nothing

Female ~ 1600 to 2500 Calories per day. Depending on height and lifestyle.

Male ~ 2500 to 3500 Calories per day. Depending on height and lifestyle.

Personally I'd stuff 'em with Burgers & Chips so they pegged out from a Heart Attack asap

Maybe they should show them pictures of the survivors of Belsen or the Japanese POW camps. Just to let them know how lucky they are.

I'm all for a clamp down on the lifestyle of prisoners in this country never mind the USA. They live a life of luxury compared with some of the people who have committed no crimes whatever.

with such trivia is beyond me - there must be a shortage of proper news.

Well said Bingalau, my sentiments exactly.

Just to give this a bit a balance - the guy is on remand pending trial, he's not been found guilty of any crime yet.

Perhaps we should have the likes of "posh" spice locked up in this jail, get some meat on their bones...

what happened to bread and water in prison.

That ended about the same time as Transportation.

Surely it's good for him to lose the weight.

Is his plan to be so heavy they can't get him into the Courts?
