    Riot at local prison last night

    The new prison just out the road at Addiwell, was opened on the 12th of December last year. Its state of the art, to the point that it was being criticised for all its mod cons (private bathrooms, flat screen TV;s in cells, the cells are also all wired for internet acces):

    Well last night the prison ran out of food, and as a result 40 prisoners smashed the place up (did wonder what all the police sirens were about:


    Published Date: 09 February 2009
    UP TO 40 prisoners were involved in a riot in Scotland's newest prison in West Lothian this week.
    The inmates barricaded themselves in and smashed up fixtures and fittings including TVs and other equipment during a three-hour rampage in Addiewell Prison last night.

    Instead of wasting tax payers money on sticking flat screen TV's and playstations in prison, they should have tear gas on a sprinkler system for occasions just like this! It's just a huge embarrassment and beyond belief that prisons are so unprepared to be able to handle a minor situation like that (unarmed prisoners rioting).

    Prisons should be the bare minimum for a human to survive. No Tv's or electrical equipment at all. They should have time to get bored and think about what they did. Not get on with life as normal, while meeting new like minded people, so they have contacts in the same field of work on the outside when they leave.

    In my opinion though, murderer's should be hung, thieves should have their hands cut off and rapists should have their penis chopped off. Firstly it will work as a deterrent. Secondly there will be no repeat offenders. And thirdly innocent members of the public will not have to pay to keep scum alive. Petty crime should be dealt with in a reform centre to give offenders a chance to mend the error of their ways. No one would get bed and breakfast in luxury accommodation if I had my way! But none of this will ever happen in today’s climate, because people are too politically correct and such subjects are taboo.

    Shocking how they get all that and yet Troops on the frontline have had to fight for years with sub-standard equipment.

    As for Human Rights, they lose all right to be called a human when they break the law in my eyes.

    I would delay repairs and not replace some of the items (tv's) etc. These people need to learn (again by the sounds of it) that their actions have consequences. I'd go so far as to add a couple of months to their prison sentences.

    Quite frankly these people are demonstrating that they cannot be allowed to rejoin a civilised community - keep 'em locked up and away from decent law abiding citizens.

    Totally agree about the government not properly equiping our troops.
    It is only when the last tree is felled, the last animal killed and the last fish hauled from the sea that we will realise we can't eat money.

    It sounds more like a spa than a prison. It will be massages and treatments next.

    Why is it they keep banging on about prisoners' human rights? What about their victims' rights??? I say let the punishment fit the crime, and in the worst cases, if proven beyond doubt, they should bring back capital punishment.
