A Cry for Help – Pass the Pills

Posted in The Job - Comment by 200

So Ian Huntley, murderer of schoolgirls Holly Wells & Jessica Chapman,  has failed on his second suicide attempt in prison.

Apparently, he was found collapsed in his cell having taken an overdose. Immediate assistance was summoned but nobody had any extra tablets, so, sadly, he was taken to hospital.

I guess there won’t be too many people sorry that he failed to do the job properly.

The general secretary of the Prison Officer’s Association was on TV today asking how his members could be expected to prevent suicide attempts by prisoners unless they were kept in a glass cage with no possessions & 24-hour monitoring.

I think he answered his own queston.

    Why oh why can’t we allow people like this who want to die to do just that and die. That way they would stop been a burden on the tax payer. People say let him rot and suffer that would be fine if he did but having all the mod cons at his disposal isn’t suffering if all he losses is his liberty.

    Could the glass cage be made airtight?
