    Probation watchdog: serious crimes may be price to pay for cutting cost of justice
    Murders and other serious crimes committed by prisoners released early from jail may have to be “accepted” by the public as part of attempts to keep down the cost of the criminal justice system, the probation watchdog suggested.


    tough on crime

    Since when does the probation watchdog make policy?

    It would be awful to be murdered in, say, 2011 by an early released prisoner. I would much prefer to be murdered in 2013 after the prisoner had served his full sentence.

    we could cut costs by not releasing them early but by making prison more like well a prison and not a like a firkin holiday camp.

    Flame bait headline because does it really make any real difference if they kill someone today or 18 days later when they should have been released? (except to poor sod on receiving end obviously, he would have liked the 18 days extra I guess)

    Questions really should be:

    Why are high risk criminal's being released at all?
    Why is prison not working?
    What really needs to be done to reform criminal's at best, just deter them from reoffending at worst?

    Personally think problem is two things,

    First society cannot agree on if prison meant to be just a punishment or if it’s meant to punish and reform people
    Second, if it is meant to reform/deter, society cannot accept that just taking a career criminal out of circulation for a while (and putting him with a bunch of criminals to “feed the monster”) and then dumping him back exactly where he was before (or in worse situation), will not, in vast majority of cases reform the individual in anyway.

    More creative and individualistic planning is required to not only determine what went wrong with the person in the first place, but on how to fix it

    And with the few remaining unreformable psychopaths? toss them on some tropical island equipped with loads of video cams and let them sort each other out Battle Royal style

    If they're willing to tolerate the risk of more innocent people being killed by prisoners released early, why aren't they willing to restore the death penalty and tolerate the even smaller risk of the occasional innocent person being topped?

    Or is this proposal craftily laying the ground for exactly that argument?
