There is a big stink about backpack murder Ivan Miliat being given a colour TV and a toasted sandwhich maker as a "reward" for not trying to attempt kill himself or trying not to escape.
The big uproar is that he get's a "reward" while the victims families have to suffer and live with what happened to them and have questioned whether or not this trying to help him or not. The priviliages have since been suspended, but of course there have been cases about Brady Murdoch (the convicted killer of British backpacker Peter Falcano despite a body has never been found and he protests his innocence) getting a radio or other prisoners getting newspapers. They were unsurprisngly of the opinion that they do not deserve anything.
And in Queensland recently there was a case of prisoners trying to get hold of CCTV footage, but the Minister of Police Judy Spence gave them a quick and swift "No way".
