    If he hadn't broken the law and ended up in jail he could of had his precious meal.

    He should be thankful tax payers and jail kitchen staff provide a decent meal for inmates.

    What will he whine about next? The fact he hasn't got fluffy pink slippers to prevent his feet from getting cold from the hard, cement floor, at night.

    They serve sentences for a reason.

    This guy lost his right to choose a meal when he chose to murder his newborn.
    I hope he never sees any of that money

    I agree with this. I'm sure murdering a baby isn't part of his religion.

    In haven't heard of this case but I do think that dietary requests are fair enough. A payout though? Probably not.

    ETA I probably say this for two reasons. 1. Because prisoners are human beings and 2. Because I have a fair few dietary needs. Vegetarian, gluten free and no cows milk. Along with no carbs at dinner time, nothing fattening or overly filling, etc...

For medical reasons, yes, a special diet can be allowed, but for this reason, rubbish, eat what you are given or starve, and there should not ever be compensation. marie.
    From what I can gather, the money is going to a victims of crime fund not directly to him (if I read correctly).

    What I think... absolutely ridiculous. You lost the liberty to request meals when you commited such heinous crime. Like others, I think the only exception is where medically necessary.

    Anyone got a link to the story?



    ..but, to answer the OP - no, you lose privileges once you commit a crime and are sentenced to jail time. Eat what you are given. (I'm sure they aren't going to serve up food to someone that will set off an allergy.)
    A religious based request seems laughable - the expectation of a pay out - absurd!

    When you choose to take an innocent babies life in a horrible horrible way you deserve nothing. You broke the law, you don't deserve special treatment. You don't like it, starve. You broke the law, live with the consequences. Of course if you have allergies that is different.

    I haven't seen the details of this particular case, but I am on the fence about this one. I think that for a prisoner to have a chance of rehabilitation, then treating them in a way that dehumanizes them (ie rejecting their spiritual beliefs, vegetarianism etc) is unlikely to allow this to happen. However, let's be honest, there are some people in jail that will never ever rehabilitate (Bayley I'm looking at you), and the thought of giving them some liberties that they have denied to others makes my stomach turn. Maybe I think it depends on the crime?

    ETA: have just read the above link. In his case, I think he has forfeited rights to request anything at all...

    "..forced to eat a vegetarian diet."

    serious!??

    and...

    "Ali, who can apply for parole from August next year, can access the money if there are no claims from victims, child support agencies or for any fines he may owe, but not while he is in jail."





    It's not like they fed him haram meat! - he got a healthy alternative.

    Seriously?

    He got fed! He wasn't starving. He should go by his religious beliefs to how he ended up in jail.

    I believe we should let the people in jail live how our poor refugees do. Maybe let them switch!!! People in prison live in better condition.
