Inquiry Launched After Prisoner Updates Facebook from Cell

 

21-year-old Kane Barratt from Stockport, near Manchester, has become the centre of a police inquiry after it was discovered that he updated his Facebook page from his cell in a Lancashire prison.

It is believed that Barratt was in possession of a mobile phone and was able to use it to update his page. Prison Services said: "Prisoners do not have access to mobile phones or the internet and cannot personally contribute to websites."

The updates to his Facebook included photos and detailed comments about his life behind bars. Facebook was contacted about the discrepancy.

This is why crime is so high here in UK, there is not such thing as real justice!

Remember the summary of the prisoner that broke was released breaking back into his old prison, life was easier for him there than the outside.

  Yes  
 
Jane, you are right, many people prefer to stay in prison because they are provided for there.

  Yet another example...  
 
...of why we really need proper justice against criminals.

We need to stop the petty criminalisation of people who leave their bins 1 inch open and start making life miserable for those who burgle, assault and steal in our society.

Prisons are supposed to be there to protect us from those people, and there is supposed to be punishment! Why are we paying through the nose to support and give a life of relative luxury to those who would prey on us, hurt us and steal from us?

Why the hell aren't we making life miserable for those who would make life miserable for us? Why aren't we standing up for ourselves? Why the hell are we letting them get away with it and then coddling them?

  Crime and punishment (only)?  
 
I don't know about the UK, but the USA attempts to rehabilitate those who have been found guilty of violating laws.

If you just want 'protection' from them and only to 'punish' them, why don't you just call for their deaths and get it done with.

I feel a lot of people end up in prison because of bad laws (like getting jail-time for smoking cannabis) and 2/3rds of people in most western countries do not need to be in prisons, especially in the USA where anti-weed legislation is meant to curb minorities, or at least has its foundation in this racist policy.
