None of these guys faced death, I have obtained legitimate inside information that all 9 of these inmates started a hunger strike,then got off of it after 8 days. Ate a whole day worth of food, and went back on it for another week. All of them are currently accepting trays. I have no sympathy for these idiots, 7 out of the 9 have assaulted staff members, 2 of which were female. These inmates aren't brave for this, they just want the publicity, if they didn't we wouldn't be reading this article. I worked at a prison and they do not report hunger strikes to reporters.
People believe anything

Don't believe everything you hear. The only reason they go on hunger strike is because once they decide to eat again they receive an extra meal and ensure for 30 days. GAMES that INMATES play!!

tell you what i used to do when i had to serve a tray to an inmate that was an asswhole or was acting out..i would stick my hand in the back of my underwear and scratch my ass and check for internal hemmoroids until my hand was real stinky if ya know what i mean..then i would handle the food that was in the tray and serve was all i could do to keep from busting out laughing when the inmate would say "yum yum damm this is good"..if they only knew..nowadays it's about the only way a guard can get back at an inmate since they have so many rights and privileges.
