Notorious British murderer Ian Huntley (The "Soham Monster") wanted a video game system very badly, in spite of the fact that he is in prison for murdering two girls. See, the GameCube the British government provided him was out-of-date, and dude wanted a Wii. He threatened to kill himself, and, according to People.Co.Uk, the British authorities caved and bought him a one.
They also insisted that guards call the murderer by his first name, treat him like family and play Wii with him.
They do things differently over there in England, eh, folks?
