Well, never having visited The Crum or indeed any prison, my own solution is short, sharp shock rather than locking up the crims for years for crimes outside murder or sex crimes. People talk about over-population in prisons. I like the Japanese capsule system. I STRONGLY believe in re-educating and skills training for prisoners. It beggars belief that society can punish a prisoner through incarceration and still seek to punish them on release. It is only asking for re-offending. I believe that prisoners should not be thrown on the street but trained and have a job to enter. I know of one guy who is now 34 and on his second life sentence. He squared up for a fight when he was 22 and with one punch he killed the guy he was fighting with one punch. He was released and two years clean another fight scenario, same outcome. One punch and he has killed a second person. There was no follow up either time. This guy shouldn't be doing time, he should be in the Olympic boxing team, when we would all be cheering him on. Instead, he's on a second life sentence and his life is screwed up.

Quite correct, He should never see daylight again. .I bet the parents of the two he killed had wished he was on a Boxing Team, but he wasn't....He didn't learn from his first killing!!!!!!!!!Bet he hasn't learnt from his second...

Oh the poor wee fellow, two life sentences & hes only 34, the two victims have lost their lives due to him not being able to control his temper, I wonder what the two families would feel if he was released in the not too distant future. If there is true justice he should be incarcerated for a long time, them rehabilitate him, if that's possible.
What ever happened to an eye for an eye etc, life for murder these days amounts to about 10 years, it used to be a hanging.

Hope it's OK to post here. Just wondering if anyone can tell me what it is like in Maghabery these days?

I am from the South and did not turn up for my trial and so am expecting to go on remand and told I would probably go here. I just need to get this sorted out now and get on with my life before things get worse.

Would someone from the South  have a tougher time here. Just looking for an idea of what to expect if anybody can help.
