I have a feeling there's more to this than
we know.

I agree in part with above two posters..

The authorities [ if informed] seemingly should have taken his allergy
more seriously, they didn't..

then again, as Tall rightly said, if he was conscious of this allergy and the consequences ...
with years of past experience WHY did he eat it..

or at the very least why didn't he inquire

He had severe dairy allergies, and died after apparently being served oatmeal containing dairy. The guards allegedly accused Saffioti of "faking" his distress, the Huffington Post reports. Though Saffioti died on July 3, 2012, his story is making headlines now because his mother is suing the county, alleging the jail knew about his medical needs and served him unsafe food anyway. This week, KIRO TV got footage from the jail that appears to show Saffioti talking to the guards, servers, and even fellow inmates about his breakfast—video his mother's lawyer had to fight to obtain; she says the county initially insisted it didn't exist.

now I'm not calling his mama a liar are you

He had dairy allergies. The jail did serve him food that was unsafe for him. Can he go down and cook a lobster and veal scallopini like the guys on goodfellas? No.

Actually he did ask about it, but apparently he asked the wrong thing. He asked if it was safe to eat, not if it contained milk products, and the guard assured him it was safe to eat.

Well, don't do the crime in the first place.

The water isn't that bad as long as the faucet is clean and you don't dip out of the toilet.
