FILE — Abdulhakim Muhammad is escorted to the Pulaski County Courthouse in Little Rock, Ark., Friday, July 22, 2011, before the fifth day of his trial for the 2009 shooting death of a soldier and wounding of another outside a Little Rock recruiting center.



A federal judge began hearing testimony Monday on a state prisoner's contention that the Arkansas Department of Correction is violating his right to religious freedom by refusing to provide him a "halal diet" in accordance with his Muslim religion.

Give him raw bacon. Let him starve if he won't eat it. Since when do convicts dictate their menu? He killed a soldier in cold blood. Why not give him a seat in "Old Sparky".

His religion would have also told him to not kill. And he didn't head that advice very well. He should be glad he is still able to eat anything. Soon enough he will be food for something else - worms.

Maybe a touch of RP seasoning would help the flavor.

All on the taxpayer dime, remember this story when the next death penalty debate comes up. I just don't see as a society what we are accomplishing by keeping ole Curt alive.
