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 serving time for aggravated burglary absconds
Connor Shand, 22, is the third inmate to abscond from Hollesley Bay open prison this month.

Suffolk police were contacted just after 1am today by prison officers, who reported that Shand, who was serving six years for aggravated burglary, had gone missing while on home leave.

Since then, officers have made checks at two possible addresses where he might have been in Essex, but Shand was not at either of them.
