Sheer insanity in the UK
Two convicted murderers escape from prison, and law enforcement refuses to release their photos, since they have "human rights" and pose "no risk." I swear, I am not making this up.
The next stop is to stop taking mugshots and fingerprints as that would be a violation of their privacy.

Why am I not surprised when I see the words "insanity" and "UK" in the same sentence. I'm afraid that place is quickly approaching meltdown.

The article said that the two men were being held at Sudbury "open prison" to "finish" their life sentences after 10 years.
I suggest they have a go at closing their prisons. Also, I guess they don't live all that long in the UK, to have a 10 year life sentence.

Clayton Cramer asks, "Life Sentence in Britain means 10 years? My question is more along the line of Jim's above: isn't "open prison" an oxymoron?

When the government opens the prisons, it turns the whole country into one.
