This country getting worse

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/4809946.stm

Just read this - remember the incident well - a prisoner disembowelled his cell mate with a razorblade and a spoon.

Now obviously this is not a very nice thing to do - the poor prisoner was in there for a minor offence I believe. What must his poor family be going through? So who gets the compensation???

The prison officers of course - all 6 of them share £1million for the "trauma" they suffered!!! Their lives will never be the same again bla blah blah!!!

Makes me sick - what if every Fireman or Ambulance worker were to claim the same when they attend a traffic accident? What about a fireman who carries a burnt baby out of a block of flats?

Then of course what about soldiers who see mates legs blown off or people's heads coming off?

Not nice - of course not - worth £1million of tax payers money???

Blame the Lawyers. they perpetuate this and get a bloody good living out of it.

And guess what we end up paying for it.

Ever wondered why the infrastructure of this country is so shabby. The money is going on the feckless and shameless.

Definatly not right .
Mind you if the prisoner had carried out his disgusting deed in the name of his religion we would have had to respect him .

As my mate says this country is "Feet Up Ass"

I'm normally as left-wing as Thatcher but in all honesty I don't have a major problem with this. A sight like that IS going to affect someone to the point where they may well be unable to work.

Would you be able to go back into your home if someone you knew had been butchered like that in there? I'm not sure that I would. Most people these days spend as much time at work as at home...

As previously said where do you stop, ambulance, firemen. I have picked up bodies from the water, some you could have needed a fishing net. But you accept you are in a job where things like this may happen.

So lets get this straight, if you have a country and the guy at the top is happy to be line up cronies for jobs, run lean on on kit for an army that cant afford to fight and then appears to be generally wrecking his governments chances of staying power just to spite his mate who wants to take over then is it not surprising that anyone below this virtuous example of greed isnt tainted?

Like a lot people I'm a socialist at heart and a capitalist in mind, but recent events make my stomach churn.

The girlfriend is a chef at our local nick, its more like a holiday camp, Argos deliveries, hot baguettes, carpetted cells (if you are a listener) etc. thats ok if it is balanced with equal provision for the victim, sadly it is not.

Just remember not EVERYONE in Prison should be there!!! South Wales Police in particular seem to think a result must always be found - even if it isn't the right one!!!

Been a few cases lately where people have spent years in prison for murders they most definitely didn't commit!!!

And I am NOT on about the cases where people were guilty as sin but evidence was lacking.

There was even a bloke sent to prison for "nicking" golfballs - he was diving in a lake and recovering the balls which were effectively as lost as it is possible to be!!!

As pressman says - where do you draw the line? Coppers/prison officers/nurses/doctors/firemen/soldiers etc etc MUST accept that their jobs can be unpleasant at times - if they don't then LEAVE - it is their choice!!!

And not everyone OUT of Prison should be either!!!

Just seen this - poor copper decided to get his brother - another copper - to torch his car as he couldn't afford to get the headgasket fixed.....
