If we render citizens lame economically they go from being a resource to a cost, that is to the state. May be business can make something out of the
prison systems, bu the money has to come from somewhere. It comes from the only places government get funding and that is our taxes. The inmate
becomes a loss to themself and all of us, even after the criminal damage they have already inflicted upon multi casualties of their crimes. The crime
is twice as bad in terms of effect on society as a whole, twice as negative and twice as ruinous.
Im watching a slow prison crisis unfold here in the UK. We are putting far too many of our citizens in prison because we are far too riddled with the
crimes that necessiate removing these people from society for our protection against their dangerous behaviors. I read recently that the British
prisons minister Rory Stewart wants to abolish short sentences to ease up spaces,
Prisons minister Rory Stewart says the move would help the rehabilitation of offenders and ease pressure on prison spaces.
Now we have many uncorrected citizens remaining in society who have had no real deterrent strategy applied to them in terms of losing freedom and may
very well carry on offending because their lives are already severely handcicapped by a criminal record. They have become double the burden still
because we have to pay them welfare as they are unemployable in most jobs because of their behaviour volatility.
The latest available data show a current prison population of approximately 92,500, comprising • 83,430 in England and Wales (end of May 2018)1
• 7,595 in Scotland (end of June 2018)2 • 1,475 in Northern Ireland (end of March 2018)3 In
Here is the very frightening part. From the House of Commons official Briefing Paper,
• The prison population is ageing: in 2002, 16% were under the age of 21 compared with 6% in 2018 and the number over the age of 50 went
from 7% in 2002 to 16% in 2018; • Prison sentences were longer in 2018 than in 2010, with 46% being over 4 years compared with 33% in 20185; •
Foreign nationals made up 11% of the prison population; • People of non-white ethnicities made up 26% of the prison population compared with 13% of
the general population. Other data sources indicate that: • At May 2018, 58% of prisons in England and Wales were over-crowded6; • The number of
reported assaults in prison in 2017 (29,500) was 13% higher than in 2016 and 44% higher than in 2015; • The number of reported self-harming
incidents (44,600) was 11% higher in 2017 than in 2016 and 94% higher than in 2007. Each jurisdiction also publishes data on the cost per prisoner or
prison place. In 2016/17, the average direct annual cost per prisoner in England and Wales was £22,933. In Scotland the average annual cost per
prison place was £35,325 and in Northern Ireland this figure was £53,408.
See how expensive all this is? Appreciate just what a "crime" to us all crime really is. That is why we need to worry about it. I am not being high
and mighty here. Even I may through some fault become a criminal one day. Mic hael Cohen never set out to get himself in the mess he is in. He is
largely a victim of circumstance. Now he has gone from being high functioning lawyer paying taxes and useful to just another "crim in the grim". So it
reasons that we should all panic even about the overcrowding and violence. A friend of mine from Boston, U.S got busted for some cannabis that was
legal atr the time in California and had to do a short sentence. He was put into a coma by a fellow inmate. See what I mean? That is why we all have
to worry. It may even be a family member who messes up and needs a stretch of time served for Her Majesty and ends up being turned into a monster or
victim because of the extremes of prison poverty.
See how they go from being a worker, or worst just on welfare, to costing the tax payer much more. They are rendered useless. They no longer do
anything other than cost a huge amount of money.
Also, we must consider this in relation to the migrants we take in. We are taking in many future prisoners who are going to cost as a fortune. Look at
the figures! They are hugely over-represented in the prisons. It is not the liberal excuse that we are mean to them either. It is their poverty and
not having any social or cultural loyalty to us. It is easier for them to dehumanize us into being their target. All they have to do is get a grudge
because we are not giving it to them on a plate. We become fair play and they have a warped justification for their crime, be it robbery, violence,
rape, grooming, drugs, et c.
We must think more carefully about everything we are doing now. We must analyse the whole panorama of our society. We must fix all the leaks and make
sound decisions, based on consciousness of every situation that arises. Surely, we have the consciousness and resources by now with all these
statistics and control at our very finger tips.
President Trump and his ethos should be the beginning of a new adventure. He is a start. This strength he has is his putting two and two togethr
politically. He has noticed cause and effect whichh Globalism never did. He acknowledges that what happens in one place makes something happen in
In democracies we must keep updating. We must stay one step head in our game. We should have been anticipating all of this, but instead the liberals
went full throttle singing a song they didn't even understand themselves. Now we all have to pay the piper for their huge error.
I have been taking a good hard look at us in the West. I am seeing some very serious leaks that could sink the Titanic, as my last few threads have
We need to be making less criminals and more citizens. That depends on our ability to conduct ourselves in a proper ordered society of loyalty to our
constitutions, or even at worst, our Queen. See how in the UK particularly we have lost all our traditional guidestones of loyalty to Christ and the
Crown. A huge gaping abyss has opened up and we are all falling into it. Now that we must become Britain again all this will show. If we do not make
for ourselves something worth being loyal to we are doomed to destruction. We could easily end up with a nation at war with itself, from stabbing
youths to continual corruption, to continual cost of making dysfunctiuonal citizens instead of functional ones. It is a very vicious circle.
Every citizen, from Caucasian to Jew to Arab to African needs to be aware that this is their society that they must make work. Every criminal act is
an enemy of this. It has a price and a cost to us all. At the same time we must create a more civil society because every neglect ends up in the
potential of violence against us in one form or another. We must fund ourselves. Every neglect becomes the potential to neglect us. We are all
vulnerable to the twists and turns of existence, victims of circumstance and losers who lost their chance, potentially. Ask Michael Cohen if you don't
Our "learning curve" is upon us, Western Civilization. The Test has come. It is do or die for us now.
