It would be glib of us to say "this will set a few hares running" (and it will). Instead, we'll say that this post sets out not one but a sequence of counterpoints to strong arguments in the public discourse on the state of the in England and Wales. Recommended reading.

All people have fundamental human needs that they will struggle to fulfill. deliberately deny these needs. As a result, will use illegitimate paths to fulfill needs, rendering prison an institution inherently riddled with conflict.

Prisoners shouldn't be coddled, but there are certain basic needs a just society provides for those it locks up. BOP's “Women and Special Populations Branch” covers a half-dozen groups with only four staffers.

We lost touch last year, but I'll never forget visiting Andy in Prison for 7 years, it's his Birthday today. The last time I saw him was on a visit in HMP Shepton Mallet. He's now out of Prison, got a good job, bought his own house, and is married.

I can and do decry the worst parts of prisoner behaviour and culture. Because despite my experiences and bias, i try to be honest in my commentary on . Pity i seem to be in a very very small group. Today has been depressing, to be frank.

Eighty-three thousand, one hundred and fifty-seven. That's the number of people held in in England and Wales this Friday night. Imagine - that's the population of a town such as: Bracknell Dudley Redditch Scunthorpe Stockton-on-Tees (Source: ONS, 2016 Ref No. 008264)

One thing about prison officers, I spend a lot of time talking to them, mostly a great group who work hard in circumstances few understand. Ask them what would change they universally say "more staff". Are they wrong?
