    Default Shocking video emerges from Portlaoise prison

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfSbsbxmMeA]YouTube - Shocking Christmas party in Portlaoise prison.[/ame]

    Is this how we punish dangerous criminals in this country? Is this how we want our tax money spent? Is this a regular occarance in our prisons?

    Here keith some even have PS2 in their cells.

    The idea of prison is to deny them their freedom and allow them to make contacts in the drugs world.

    Do you think they live in some dickensian dungeon 4 men to a cell where they sh!te in a bucket in a corner?

    Isn't the punishment being "locked up"? Do you want them whipped and chained to a wall as well? It's a Christmas party. They still don't get to go home, do they?

    Big deal.

    It's far more than being "locked up". A prison is not a hotel and should not be an entertainment centre for serious criminals.

    I don't actually understand what's wrong. It's Christmas FFS, and there's not even drink.

    What hotel are you on about?

    Have you ever ventured outside of the back bedroom in your parents house?
    I dread to think what would happen to your poor,frail mind if you discovered we have a serious drug problem in our prison system
