Wonder what you make of the fact that Britain’s most dangerous prisoner has been given £200 to buy spectacles so he can see the ball when watching the football on TV?
The Prison Service offered Charles Bronson the money after his glasses were damaged in a brawl with two guards at Full Sutton high-security jail. Bronson, who has attacked at least 50 prison officers over the past three decades, is boasting that he will buy designer frames by Calvin Klein. He demanded new glasses because he could no longer make out the action while watching Premiership highlights on the BBC’s Match of the Day in his cell. Prison officials, who have spent £500,000 handling rooftop protests by Bronson, agreed.
Utterly shocking and evidence of just how corrupted our judicial system has become when tax-payers money is used to facilitate the TV viewing needs of thugs like Bronson. My personal way of dealing with the issue of his inability to see the football action on the TV….would be to have taken away the TV. Problem solved. Why do our Prisons indulge in this manner?
