LAST YEAR, 21,721 PRISONERS WAS RECALLED TO PRISON
I don’t think there is a sentence that I haven’t been recalled on. Most sentences, I have ended up doing the whole licence and most of the recalls that I have had, I hadn’t committed a further offence. Therefore, it is quite clear that there is significant problems within the system, when it comes to being recalled to prison, (without committing a further offence) seems to be more common than I even believed. Furthermore, I am not alone in this statistic, I believe the recall rate to prison is the highest than the whole of Europe put together. Something is definitely is going wrong in Britain, I know Norway is a smaller country than the UK but, how do they manage to only have a 20% reoffending rate. Along with other European Countries in some of the lowest recall rates within the whole of Europe and beyond…
In all reality, I don’t know why I am quoting reoffending rates as over 50% of prisoners recalled to prison have NOT committed another crime. One guy I spoke to in jail said, he got recalled because of his character. well after hearing ridiculous reasons like that I stopped trying to make any sense of licence conditions and probation as a whole. In all honesty to hear a guy reply, My character got me recalled, is somewhat shocking. However, its not the first strange reason a prisoner has been recalled. Another guy told me, he got recalled because they ”THOUGHT” he might commit another offence…We now have thought police in the UK.
I am understanding the prisoners pain but, after them telling me things as crazy as this, I automatically think, No! surely there is more to this… Then the guy who got recalled for ”THOUGHT” They really thought he was going to committee another crime. Well I read his recall papers and after getting through all the jargon and politically correct jargon and policies that you can bend to any scenarios, It came to light, given all the circumstances of the recall papers, it actually come down to a conclusion that he may committee further offences. Which to me and reading it as well as I could, it really came down to ”THEY THOUGHT” he was going to committee further offences and recalled him back to prison for a further 2 years…
These facts below are that, ”FACTS” However, there is no way of measuring these countries policies and procedures of recalled prisoners back to custody, in the terms of how or why they was recalled. We can in Britain, because some years back ”Probation Officers” were given the right to become Police Officer, Magistrate, Crown Court Judge and jury coupled with power to sentence individuals back to prison for very long terms of imprisonment. Moreover, some of the most petty, pathetic reasons and minor infractions was the most used in recalling people back to prison. Furthermore over 50% of recalled prisoners have never even committed another offence being recalled to prison.
Accordingly, they would be sent to prison for such a minor infringement it would not even warrant a prison sentence. It’s a fact that most people who do not have these powers, the layperson in the street, even find it hard to understand that person being late or a bus train delayed/cancelled, phone masts being fixed, car tyre puncture these are things that are all out of control to the majority of peoples lives. It’s called ”LIFE” and things in life don’t always run smooth. However, a person on licence from prison doesn’t have that privilege of being part of society. A probation officer will ask you to be part of a sociably acceptable life yet, they then ask them to live a complete different life from the rest of society. What chance of rehabilitation has a prisoner on licence got, if they can’t even be part of a realistic society that everything doesn’t run smoothly?…….Below are facts that I took from the actual PRISON REFORM TRUSTS WEBSITE.
There were more than 140,000 admissions into prison in England and Wales in 2017—the highest number in western Europe, according to a new report published today (24 June 2019) by the Prison Reform Trust.
The report Prison: the facts, reveals that, despite the number falling in recent years, England and Wales still have over 40,000 more admissions to prison than Germany, the second-highest—which has a significantly larger national population.
The rate of prison admissions, which accounts for the effects of differences in national populations, shows that England and Wales have a rate approximately three times that of Italy and Spain, and almost twice as high as Germany, with 238 prison admissions for every 100,000 people.
