Prisons offer many an 'easier' life: iLIVE
I hope the pie-in-the-sky proposals put forward by correctional services spokesman Logan Maistry will bare fruit ("Much being done for inmates", September 6). He correctly points out that the problems lie outside prisons. We cannot hope to reintegrate prisoners into a society that is abnormal in every sense of the word.
Our society is characterised by unemployment. There is no longer a "normal family unit" to return to, as single mums abound.
The list of "abnormalities" is endless so many inmates prefer living in prisons, where they are fed and clothed without having to lift a finger.
Some released convicts have confessed they will break the law to be imprisoned again.
