Oscar Pistorius may be forced to stay in jail because he has NO ANKLES for electronic tag

Oscar Pistorius may not get early release from his gang-ridden jail where he is fed rations of buttered bread because the electronic tagging device cannot be fitted securely to his prosthetic leg, it emerged today.
The revelation came as South African prosecutors said their request to appeal the athlete's manslaughter conviction and five-year prison sentence would be heard on December 9.
The runner had hoped he would qualify for home detention curfew with a tag after serving just ten months of his sentence.
But MailOnline can reveal that prison bosses have told him he can't take part in their tagging scheme because the device cannot be properly monitored if it is fixed to a prosthetic leg.
The tags cannot by law be fixed to an offender's wrists as they are too easily removed.

I'm sure Oscar isn't the first legless prison inmate who has encountered this problem.
You'd think they would have fixed it by now.
We can put a man on the Moon, but we can't figure out a way to get an electronic tag to stay on someone if they don't have ankles?

Why don't they just put cattle grids outside his house?

They could probably make one to go on his wrist. but it would cost an arm and a leg.
