thought for the day
we must get away from this notion that criminals need to be punished. why should they be punished? :slno: this is an outmoded method of dealing with a person who committed a crime. they should be held in custody, preferably for a short a time as possible, so it doesn't cost too much and if when they are released, they then commit a further crime, well even then they still don't deserve punishment, instead they should be welcomed back into custody, preferably for an even shorter time than previously, so it costs even less than the first time. when released back onto the poor old UK public again, if they commit a further crime again, well - it's to be expected. the UK have a 'REVOLVING DOOR JUSTICE system,' it's not that good at actually providing justice for the UK public, but it is cheap and that's what counts :slsad:

Prisoner ran £500,000 criminal empire from cell

Post by falkor » Thu Mar 24, 2011 11:13 am

A prisoner who ran a criminal empire from his cell was sentenced today with a prison officer and a member of police staff who helped him, Scotland Yard said.
Robert Talbot, 33, arranged for drugs and mobile phones to be smuggled into prison as well as co-ordinating the theft and cloning of luxury cars worth a total of £500,000.
He was jailed for 12 years at Southwark Crown Court alongside former prison officer Ian Cooper, 35, who was jailed for five-and-a-half years. Ex-Metropolitan Police civilian employee Natalie Ricketts, 28, received a 10-month suspended sentence.
Cooper's partner, former Metropolitan Police constable Hayley Cloud, 28, was earlier jailed for two years for her part in the conspiracy.
Talbot, the ringleader of the criminal network, corrupted Cooper while serving a sentence at Wandsworth Prison in south-west London, Scotland Yard said.
The prison officer supplied the inmate with mobile phones and helped smuggle drugs into the jail, sometimes hidden in large cartons of orange juice.
Cloud, then serving with the Met in Lewisham, south-east London, used police databases to carry out vehicle checks for Talbot so he could create cloned identities for the stolen cars.
