    I don't consider myself to be a vindictive person, but a part of me hopes dearly that no matter what meals he receives, the other inmates working in the kitchen take the time to 'sauce' and 'spice' up his meals with ingredients that you wouldn't find used in your average home. Is phlegm halal?

    I think that the food provided should be such that a person suffers no allergic reaction...

    And that's about it.

    You want the freedom to choose what you eat? Then don't kill anyone.

    It's not rocket science.

    What a total waste of money to fight this in court.

    He should be fed and that's a stretch for me.

    Abso-frikkin-lutely.

    From my limited understanding, vegetarian food is halal, providing the dairy products are from plain milk (ie, not flavoured milk) and the cheese is proper vegetarian cheese. He hasn't got a leg to stand on, he GOT halal meals.

    I don't know the story of why he is in prison (nor do I want to) but the irony of insisting on following strict religious doctrine after you've just murdered someone is mind boggling.

    As for being able to have 'special' meals, as a vegetarian of over 20 years I'd have issues if I was forced to eat meat. I'll just have to stay out of jail so it never becomes an issue.

    I'm with Squishie on this one.
    He doesn't deserve any special treatment. He was fed something he could eat,just because he doesn't like it doesn't give him the right to complain.
    It's not like he was force fed pork and non halal meat.
    I'm sure his religions beliefs would not find it acceptable to do which he did to his child so he obviously pick and chooses which part of his religion to follow.
    I'm sure the murder of a child has blown his chances with his god already....

    No. Don't commit crimes if you want special food. This is different for medical reasons though.

    no i dont think so. i would have hoped that every bite of non religious appropriate food gave his a stabby chest pain. and a stabby anus pain when he pooped it out.

    I see no issue with what happened...

    I think that prinsoners, whatever their crime, should be given food that meets dietary requirements/preferences within reason. In his case, he was given food that didn't contain non-halal meat. No problem. I WOULD see a problem if he was given food containing non-halal meat and had no alternative but to eat it or starve. No way in hell though does he have a right to demand meat that suits him.

    My opinion is that if you commit a crime that sees you spending time in jail, you shouldn't get an option of what you eat. Religious beliefs? Too bad. There's your meat and 5 veg. If you don't like it, starve. You're in prison for goodness sake, not a freaking resort.
