Offender Managers and Supervisors at HMP Frankland are releasing prisoners back into the community with no help whatsoever. I am sick of hearing mealy-mouthed politicians lying to the press and media about how they are going to help prisoners get their lives back on track, it is utter rubbish.
The injustice that is the IPP sentence has passed much of the public by. There are few column inches dedicated to it, rarely a televised word, and only a sprinkling of legislators have given a damn.
I have now stopped doing anything for parole, as I have realised that there is no point. I know I am going to die in prison. I have self-harmed a lot and twice tried to kill myself because of the loss of hope. Even my dreams are no longer normal, I often dream about dying in prison.
Frankland jail in Durham, a category A prison housing some of the UK’s most dangerous killers and terrorists, has been earmarked for the first “prison within a prison” to isolate Islamist terrorists.
Units housing only extremists are meant to prevent radicalisation but some say it could create Britain’s own Guantánamo Bay
However, general secretary of the Prison Officers Association Steve Gillan, said the union is unsure whether segregation is the answer to combating extremism. “We have vast experience of that in Northern Ireland and it didn't work there, it made the situation worse,” he said.
