"I say eat what they feed you or die..."

I'd agree if this were some South American prison. But it's not. Prisoners, no matter how heinous their crimes may have been, still deserve the most basic fundamental human rights, which includes the right to practice their religion.

I thought "Goodfellas" had the most accurate depiction of prison dining.

Simon Price, an Orthodox Jew and convicted cocaine kingpin, is serving a 28-year prison sentence in Britain's HM Prison Frankland for smuggling over $53 million worth of cocaine. He's also suing the prison for "institutionalized anti-Semitism," due to its lack of adequately Kosher food. Price alleges that both Muslim and vegetarian criminals receive preferential treatment at the prison. Prisoners can choose to cook for themselves, but Price says that solution wouldn't work because he'd be forced to share utensils used to prepare non-kosher food. As glamorous as films like "Blow" and "Scarface" are, they really don't show the worst part of drug dealing: It's hard to get good matzo balls in jail. [Source]
