When we imagine life imprisonment, there are thoughts of being stuck in a small cell with little freedom aside from a short break in the day to hit the prison yard. Inmates’ days consist of little more than staring out a tiny, barred window (if they’re lucky) and remaining ever-vigilant against the inevitable shiv with their name on it. At least that’s what the majority of films would have us believe.
In reality, prison life can be quite different, and even the most twisted and depraved serial killers will bend their rights enough to receive some surprising perks. These are the craziest examples of privileges enjoyed by serial killers that went well beyond just extra cigarettes and soda.
