Re: Scottish High Court Appeal

I suppose this all comes back to making prison work.

In an ideal world every criminal would have an 'Ephiphany moment' whilst in jail and would come out a reformed character. Some do but most don't.

I don't know if you saw the BBC report yesterday about a former gang leader who thanked the police for locking him up and changing his life, but it made interesting reading. This should be a perfect opportunity to use the experience and powers of persuasion of an ex Gang Master for the good of all.

BBC Report - Former 'dangerous' gang leader thanks police for prison

I belive Britian has one of the highest prison populations per capita in the western world so we must be doing something wrong. The difficulty of securing worthwhile employment after prison is a major problem but in a competitive jobs market who would, by choice, employ an ex-convict?

Difficult is worth doing
