This could only happen in the UK, personally i would love to beat Huntley to death with my bare hands and believe me if i was ever to meet him i would, heres the full article from the People online;
Prison guards have been told to play Wii computer games with Soham monster Ian Huntley in a bid to stop him killing himself.
They have also been instructed to call the murderer by his first name - and treat him like family.
Bosses issued the order because Huntley has tried suicide three times since getting life in 2003 for killing ten-year-old schoolpals Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman.
And they fear he will try again unless they keep him sweet.
So taxpayers have picked up the bill to put a £179 Nintendo Wii console in Huntley's cell at Frankland Prison in Co Durham.
And warders will join him in games which require players to replicate real-life actions in sports like tennis, golf and fishing.
A jail source said: "Huntley has been asking for a Wii for months.
"When he moved to Frankland in February he was given a Nintendo Game Cube - but after only a few weeks he began complaing it was out of date.
"Management are desperate to stop him going though with threats he's made to kill himself and by giving him a Wii they believe they can take his mind away from harming himself in any way."
Earlier this year, an internal jail memo instructed staff to "develop a positive dialogue" with the 34-year-old fiend.
Officers were also told to treat him as "an extension of their family" and call him Ian or Mr Huntley.
But the source said: "Many of them don't want to get involved with him because of his crimes.
"But they know it's more than their jobs are worth if they don't comply."
Huntley - Prisoner JG5778 - enjoys his cushy life in a private room within the health-care wing of the maximum-security jail.
He can wear his own choice of designer clothes and has three meals a day brought to his cell.
As well as the Wii, the room is fitted with a telly and CD player.
And the walls are decorated with pictures of his ex-lover Maxine Carr.
The source said: "He has almost everything done for him and is waited on hand and foot by the officers assigned to his care.
"He lives in luxury - yet the parents of Holly and Jessica are living a nightmare."
