THIS Is Punishment? You Must Be Joking!

If you commit a crime you go to prison right? Prison is supposed to be a punishment for the criminal to ensure that he changes his ways and becomes a better citizen, right? Well, if you thought that you would be very wrong!

A news item released today has once again revealed that prisoners in our jails have a better life than you or I, and there is no such thing as punishment for crimes committed in this ‘enlightened’ age! The whole episode makes a mockery of British Justice.

It concerns a ‘drug lord’ who was sentenced to five years but is living the high life in prison with all the comforts of home, and many you would love to have. Jason Crocker, 36 was caught by the police selling drugs, and these are photographs of his cell that he took himself and posted on Facebook:

How on earth are prisoners living in the lap of luxury supposed to feel remorse for their actions and become reformed citizens? How on earth is living like this supposed to be a punishment?

The following are some of the public’s reactions to this article:

“How can this be allowed to happen? Surely the person(s) responsible for making these misery mongers lives comfortable in prison should disciplined and dismissed! It makes my blood boil… ” 

“What the hell is the prison service up to? That governor should be sacked on the spot and someone with the balls to impose a proper regime installed. Everything in that cell that is non-regulation should be confiscated immediately as a starter.”

“What is the world coming to. this guy seems to be having a better life than me and I’ve never done a thing wrong in my life. its time the government stamped down on this and made prison what its supposed to be and that’s punishment not a life of Riley.” 

“I can’t afford a games cube! I’ve never been in prison but it sounds wonderful!! Are we really allowing this to go on at the tax payers expense? He was a dirty drug dealer, destroying people’s lives for goodness knows how long & should not have anything other than a toilet in his cell. There is no deterrent in prison sentences. Make them work, bring back the harshest regime!”

I have to agree with all the sentiments above, but thanks to the Human Rights Laws from Brussels, and the ‘Goody-Goody Brigade’ here at home, we have reached a stage where there is no longer an incentive for criminals to ‘go straight’ when released.

If they get caught they receive a paltry sentence, even for murder, and then live a life of luxury behind bars at the Tax Payers expense. The only thing they miss is their freedom of movement. This is just not right, and it’s time we had a government willing and able to do something about it.

Send in the Riot Squad or Army and remove all the niceties from every cell and replace it with the standard bed and toilet, then lets see how they reform.

Prison guards should stop being ‘Mr. Nice Guy’ and be very strict, allowing only that which is necessary for living without all the comforts of home. Any guard who is caught allowing ‘contraband’ into the prison receives an automatic six months sentence and is fired from his job.

You can be sure there will be prison riots, but the moment trouble breaks out the Riot Squad or Army go in and sort it out. A few soldiers armed with batons and fire-hoses should be able to sort that out.

There can be little doubt that we need more prison guards who can watch the movements of prisoners at all times and quell trouble the moment it starts. A system of isolating a trouble spot in the prison is vital to stop it spreading to other wings. The answer to all prison riots is isolation and a quick response to prevent it spreading. Another essential is allowing only small groups of prisoners to move about the prison.

Work is another essential that is missing today, for it is far better to have prisoners working eight hours a day than lounging around playing snooker or watching TV. It is way past time that they made a contribution to society during their incarceration instead of living the kind of life many of us can only dream about.
