Oi, Grandad

People aged 60 and over are now the fastest growing age group in the prison system. Ah, the youth of today...(NOMS, Feb 2008)


  1. I love the title you gave to fact that people aged 60 and over are the fastest growing age group in prisons, and I am glad for the information.

    One of my neighbors who is sixty has just been put in jail - awaiting sentencing very soon for making death threats against his daughters, his girlfriend and myself ( I played it down to the police ), but his daughters are pressing charges.

    Although this neighbor can be a right what not at times, jail is no place for him, he has terminal health problems, exacerbated by a couple of beatings he received, one whilst in Jail, the other when he was let out on bail before breaking his conditions and having to go back inside.

    Still, for a drug dealer, its amazing he has survived, I know his daughters would be happy if he retired from his precarious profession and grew old gracefully!

  2. Some people forget that crime is generally a young mans game!
