Re: Britain's 'Crossbow Cannibal' Gets Life in Prison for Three Murders

Fucking bastard is on hunger strike:


THE Crossbow Cannibal is on hunger strike after claiming jail bosses are breaching his human rights by guarding him too closely.

Stephen Griffiths, caged for ever for killing, skinning and eating the flesh of three hookers, bleated that life behind bars is miserable because security is so tight.

The monster, who will be 41 tomorrow, was last night being held in isolation away from fellow prisoners.

He is being watched from outside his Hannibal Lecter-style cell 24/7 by a team of guards who take it in turns to monitor him through a screen. Griffiths’ cell at Wakefield Prison in West Yorks has a reinforced plastic door like serial killer Lecter’s in the movie Silence Of The Lambs.

Griffiths has to sleep with the light on so he can be constantly viewed.

He is even physically rolled over during the night while asleep to check he is OK.

The moves were brought in after he made suicide bids after he was held in jail charged with the murders of Susan Rushworth, 43, Suzanne Blamires, 36, and Shelley Armitage, 31.

But Griffiths claimed the measures were so stringent they were making prison life a misery and breaching his human rights. He recruited lawyers to go to court in a bid to get the rules relaxed.

But after a secret hearing, the details of which the Daily Star can only report for the first time today, a judge refused to step in and ruled the prison service was best equipped to determine how he should be guarded.

Griffiths was jailed for life on Tuesday after admitting the prostitutes’ murders.

Desperate for stardom like the serial killers he had studied at university, the homicide student shot the women with crossbows, stabbed them and, like his idol Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe, 64, battered them with hammers.

After shooting grisly snuff movies he used a collection of blades to skin their corpses before carving them up with power tools.

He boiled and ate the flesh of two of them and tucked into the third raw before dumping what was left in a river.

Griffiths was caught after shooting third victim Suzanne in view of a CCTV camera in a corridor outside his flat.

A security guard called police after watching the horrific crime the day after.

The fiend, who told police upon his arrest in May that eating human flesh was “magic”, has since lost three stone because he refuses to eat.

In separate bids to kill himself he smashed a TV and tried to use the broken glass to cut his throat, swallowed batteries from his radio, tried to swallow a plastic bag and tied another over his head. Jail bosses want him to die naturally behind bars and brought in extra security measures to prevent further suicide attempts.

They also want to protect him from possible attacks by fellow inmates.

Details of Griffiths’ living conditions in jail were revealed when his lawyers recently tried to overturn the decision to bang him up in isolation. They claimed denying him access to other inmates and making him the subject of such intense scrutiny was cruel.

Griffiths’ lawyer Matthew Stanbury claimed the cannibal was living in “squalid” conditions. When he had been briefly allowed to mix with other inmates in a common room within the jail’s health care wing it had stimulated him and stopped his “weight loss” and “stress”.

Mr Stanbury argued there was no evidence that Griffiths was a danger to other inmates and should be able to socialise.

He said the only other prisoners who were isolated on a daily basis like him were those who had committed murder in jail or taken hostages behind bars.

Mr Stanbury said: “The fact of the matter is that there remains, in my submission, no sustainable justification for removing him from association on the basis that he tried to harm himself.”

The lawyer argued that this extra supervision should be temporary and Griffiths had a human right to associate with fellow inmates.

But the judge, Mr Justice Simon, ruled there was no basis for him to intervene as the killer’s situation was under constant review by prison bosses and psychiatrists.

Not that the daily star newspaper is the ultimate reference source but it summed it up the best.

Lets hope this wanker dies soon. Mind you there would probably be a huge inquest into it costing the tax payer millions.

Just put him with the general population, they can feed him some dick until they get bored and do him like he did the hookers.
