Underfunded prison service

Recommended Posts

It absolutely sounds like an accident waiting to happen and the amount of attacks is horrific. Which is probably why they let the dangerous ones out early.

Anyway I was moved to post by the picture of the prison riot squad moving in with shields. It looks more like a day out for a group of primary school teachers; I thought prison officers tended to be ex-forces.  That's not going to intimidate somebody who's in for parking offences let alone an armed robber.

We don't want violent people out on the streets. So they all need locking up. But it seems our human rights lovey-dovey dreams of prison mean the violent can continue within prison walls.

How on earth do you protect society and rehabilitate people to avoid a life of crime?
Most of them wouldn't do crime if they had the £££ that it cost to keep them inside. But that's not the answer either.

I would start by deporting those who do not have British citizenship.  According to this report (page 12) that stands at around 12 percent.

Non violent offenders should into be in prison - bar people who've committed mass fraud - >500k.

All other non-violent (and minor violence - think pub brawls) should be doing community Sat + Sun for 5h.

Having to give up weekends but still work Mon-Fri is a much bigger deterrent than prison for most people.

Part of the Prisons problems are down to the stupid idea of having female guards. Moronic in a male prison. For obvious and non obvious reasons.

1, Prisoners having to face a load of ex squaddies guards is a bigger deterrent than having to face 50% female criminology grads

2, Most of the Spice enters the prison via PO vagina.

The prisoners are taking over and the guards go home exhausted and nervous. New employees are not suitable for the job.

What a fecking mess this poor little island has become due to bad leadership.

again its the dumb diea of haivng 50/50 male/female staff in prison.

Cousin still in Hull nick.

As well as the boom in Islaimic prisoners - both fiddlers and terrorists, theres a huge increase in drugs. mainly spice.

Theres more drugs in prisons than outside - and he lived in  Scarboro FFS.

And this is 50% policed by women rather than ex squaddies.

Look at the salaries. 

Even in London, that is not a wage you could live on.  It really is only going to attract young people desperate for work

idiots. Pay peanuts..... tptb honestly seem to think they can pay less than subsistence wages and get quality, motivated people. 

Idiots.
