Just Think About It, Will You?

… the Howard League called for more community sentences for those serving time in Feltham.

Director of campaigns Andrew Neilson said: “This is the worst inspection report of its kind we have seen in a decade. If you want to see the effects of keeping hundreds of troubled boys cooped up in a prison, you need look no further than Feltham.”

Right. See, these ‘troubled boys’ are clearly causing too many problems in prison, so better they be out in the community. Where they will help old ladies across the road and rescue kittens from trees, I suppose?

Do these people ever stop and listen to themselves?

… the report found that 300 acts of violence had been recorded in the children’s prison in the six months before the inspection.

Some of these were “very serious” showing groups kicking and punching each other in clear view of staff.
However, senior prison staff said that cases of “extreme violence” were no longer referred to the police because they were reluctant to pursue them.

But they’ll be keen to do so once these offences are outside prison walls?

    Not the Nine O’clock News – a comedy programme – had the answer to male violence many years ago, “Cut off their goolies”. 🙂

      I have, within that last few seconds, on this very blogg site, quoted Jasper carrot; “There is only one way to get rid of a mole. Blow its bloody head off!”

    Send them to a women’s prison. They will have their faces slapped at least ten times a day for the slightest ‘look’ or misplaced word. And if they get violent the ladies will beat the shyte out of them, just like on the outside.

    Oh, sorry, the PTB are closing the women’s prisons.
