I love Britain but I sure don’t understand their coddling of convicts.
Prisoners could soon have telephones fitted inside their cells, the Ministry of Justice has said. It said it was considering a trial, at one jail, which would allow calls to be made in cells rather than on communal phones on landings. Officials are concerned about growing numbers of mobile phones being smuggled into prisons. Harry Fletcher, of the National Association of Probation Officers, said the scheme would need tight controls.
That’s just crazy. They don’t want phones smuggled in so they want to put phones in cells… where cons can arrange drug deals, have enemies murdered, and carry on their business at taxpayer expense. Lunacy.
Putting phones in cells to stop smuggling of phones is like giving free crack to crack whores and asking them to stop using crack.
