This smacks the relatives of the murdered man right in the face. I have a problem with convicts even having access to television and occasional movies, let alone internet access.

Behind bars: Jamal Dyce was jailed for life in 2008 for stabbing to death labourer Philip Armstrong
A murderer has posted photos of himself larking around in jail on Facebook – before using the site to ask friends to send him more phone credit.
Jamal Dyce, who was jailed for life in 2008 for fatally stabbing a man, has taken to the social-networking site to brag about his life at HMP Gartree in Leicester.
The 25-year-old boasts about how he drinks alcohol, ‘bulks up’ at the gym and watches football matches behind bars.
He also speaks to friends on a Blackberry mobile phone – exchanging messages and joking about how easy it is to acquire drugs in prison.
Dyce was jailed for a minimum of 12 years in 2008 for stabbing to death labourer Philip Armstrong in a fight over a mobile phone.
But despite Dyce’s sentence, he has posted numerous photos of himself on Facebook, including images of him cuddling his mother at the prison.
In another photo, the killer can be seen being lifted up by a man he calls ‘Dog’.
And in a string of Facebook posts – all posted via mobile phone – Dyce boasts about watching Champions League football and Match of the Day on TV, tucking into a beef curry and going to the gym.
He has even taken to the social-networking site to ask his friends to send him a £5 T-Mobile top-up card.
