Just another example of how the prison system in the United Kingdom is a joke.
An inmate at one of Britain's top security prisons was compensated because his newspaper was delivered late, it emerged yesterday. The prisoner at
Frankland jail, Durham, claimed he was being 'targeted' as other convicts got their papers on time. His was one of more than 6,000 grievances logged
at the jail over a 12-month period, the most complaints lodged at any prison in the country.
This guy received around £100 in compensation for his newspaper being delivered to him late.
Talk about a waste of tax payers money!
The Prison Officers Association (PoA) said many involved paedophiles, murderers and rapists moaning about not being called "Mr" or "Sir" by staff.
Another Frankland inmate lodged a complaint because he was too late to collect his lunch. He arrived at a canteen after it had closed but claimed he
was being bullied
It is ridiculous! especially when you factor in the cost of suspension of staff pending the outcome of investigation into the complaints, most of
which are frivolous.
It's a joke.
