It’s disgusting but you need to read it.
Ian Huntley is receiving extraordinary preferential treatment in prison to ‘keep his spirits up’.
Who is Ian Huntley?
He is the killer of two children – Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman – and he has tried three times to kill himself. The authorities are keen to avoid another attempt. I ask, Why?

Officers guarding him have been told by governor David Thompson to treat Huntley - and fellow inmates - as ‘extensions of their family’ and use their first names or address them as ‘Mr’. In addition, 33-year-old Huntley was given a series of privileges within weeks of arriving at Frankland Prison in County Durham - privileges which others would take months of good behaviour to earn. Prisoner JG5778 has been given a private room within the health-care wing of the maximum-security jail. Rather than be forced to wear uniform, he and other inmates are allowed their own choice of designer clothes.
Holly and Jessica were 10 years old when Huntley took their lives. Now he is being given this special treatment and prison officers must show respect towards this piece of filth. He SHOULD, in my view, face execution for his wicked crimes. Even alllowing him to kill himself is inadequate. But the efforts being made to spare his life contrast with his evil taking of the lives of these two innocent children and it disgusts me.
