Excellent slapdown on this topic in the Prisoner on Facebook story -
'Of course it is a holiday. I can give you an example: "New Cook County Correctional Center, Chicago, Illinois". Do a search on this, check out the pictures, you will not believe it!'

Hmm. Well, I've done a search on this and it turns out it's in Austria, and isn't really a prison. Ah, the gullibility of the right-wing...
Same with prisons. This myth regarding the 'holiday camp' nature of UK penitentiaries s exactly that - they're grim, monstrous places where your soul dies, as anyone who has worked with prisoners can attest. But hey, let's not allow the truth to interfere with our convictions, eh...
And don't go saying that this single, isolated act of bravado constitutes proof, either. Since when was Facebook an empirical source...?

But naturally it has brought the gits out, of which this is only one of many -
Prisoners should be locked in their cells 24/7 and NEVER let out until they have served their time. They do not deserve 'Human Rights'. More often than not, they are in prison because they have violated someones human rights in one way or another. i.e. taking their life, raping them, etc. So they should have theirs taken away. Drugs/Alcohol are more rife in prison than on the streets some times.

But he seems to ignore the heroes unlawfully locked up by NuLiebore's Stasi police for speeding or for giving feral council estate chav immigrant children a clip round the ear for terrorising British war heroes.
