He's run away three times in the past and they let him out a fourth time?  Normally, I don't root for the criminal but the morons who keep letting him out deserve every bit of trouble they get.

drxym: gfid: Not really. At least not according to an interview I saw with another former inmate at the prison where the Skull Cracker failed to return. He said things were pretty lax and people who didn't return on time weren't even disciplined, but you couldn't just walk out.

Open prisons in the UK have very minimal security. Perhaps it's correct to say you couldn't just walk out. You might have to hop a chain link fence instead. They are intended for non violent offenders & people who've served their term and are shortly due for release. Presumably they're seen as a form of rehabilitation - allowing the person the ability to leave the prison for short visits but providing some measure supervision. Kind of like a halfway house but still part of the prison system.

I suppose that means that even career criminals with swastika tattoos or nicknames like Skull Cracker will end up in there when their sentence is due up. I don't see it as a bad thing either. Look what happened in this case - these morons violated the very liberal regime of these places and will now get thrown back into prison, presumably for longer than if they had just behaved themselves.


It`s a win-win. If you can`t behave with only a slight reduction in security then I sure as hell don`t want you in a pub near me getting drunk...

In Denmark the concept that you could just escape is kinda build into the system.

Prisoners feel "locked up", if they have no apparent way of just walking out of there. Once escaping is a possibility, they generally don't, and in return act a lot better inside as well.


Super dangerous prisoners, who are judged an escape risk, are put in less friendly prisons.

spawn73: jtown: He's run away three times in the past and they let him out a fourth time?  Normally, I don't root for the criminal but the morons who keep letting him out deserve every bit of trouble they get.

He's in an open prison, so he could actually just walk out of there without any permission.

Seems like they're in the process of releasing him. Though he doesn't seem like a good candidate to be released.

It's still a pretty stupid way to run a prison.

I'm more amazed that the Daily Mail is reporting on a news event that actually happened in the UK.

Have you tried turning it off and on again?
