Time for the UK to hang it up

Women prison estate to be cut
Thousands of women criminals will avoid jail each year under plans to cut the number of cell spaces by 400.

The move, to be staggered over the next three years, will see the size of the women's prison estate cut by around ten per cent and could see entire jails closed down.

It is part of the ongoing policy by Jack Straw, the Justice Secretary, to reduce the number of women being jailed and increase the use of community penalties.


Mr Straw said only the most serious female criminals should be behind bars.

There are currently just over 4,800 prison places for women in England and Wales but under the Ministry of Justice plans, 300 will be cut by March 2011 and a further 100 will go by March the following year.

The savings will be spent on improving services to deal with women offenders in the community. The MoJ also announced £5 million to improve Approved Premises accommodation for women offenders who are being closely supervised on release from custody and £1 million to pilot a new project, from April 2010, to examine early intervention schemes for women when they first come in to contact with the criminal justice system.

Maria Eagle, the Justice minister, said: “We have already made good progress in taking forward our strategy to divert women from crime.

"Over the last two years I have ensured there is a specific push to direct resources to stop vulnerable women from becoming trapped in a cycle of crime.

"Women’s offending is a complex phenomenon which burden’s society, damage children and families, and creates misery for the women themselves."


I knew the UK was pussywhipped but I didn't think it was this bad. I believe it was British feminists who desired to exempt women from prison reserving that hell for men and now we see that become a reality. Gordon Brown has royally cut the balls off Britain.

It is only a matter of time before these sexist and vile policies come to the US. The US is already under pressure for jailing too many people, and letting female criminals walk free will be seen as a good compromise by leftists. There has already been an initiative in Wisconsin to cut female jails. That movement will definitely gain momentum now.

Somehow, I hope they will release ALL females prisoners and close all women's jails.


It's time for the U.K. to shutdown for good.

Not just Gordon Brown.
One must never forget Harriet Harm-The-Man and Jacqui Porn-Smith.
Without their efforts, Britain would not be in its current, glorious state.

If such a thing happens in the U.S., Tennessee, which has only 1 prison for women, will be glad to shut down the women's prison. This is a "woman's state" anyway. Of course it isn't as if the state has the same hardon for putting women in prison. Look at the Mary Winkler case; she got the infamous vagina pass for murdering her sleeping husband and "claiming" he abused her. No evidence of abuse was needed, her word (like the word of many women, is considered gold.

Tennessee is a feminazi bitch state.

Note how the language implies that female offenders themselves are passive victims of their own crimes.

Can you imagine anyone saying such things about men?

Letting people off the hook because they are women is sick. What the hell is the rationale for this? Why should men get prison time for the same crimes?

Sick, utterly sick. The next woman to whine about how difficult women have it is getting punched in the face. I've had enough.

They ought to limit prison cells for MEN to 400. Its time for "Equality" in prison cells.

Anything else is evil anti-men prejudice by the Criminal Injustices System.

If they are going to stop putting women in prison, then they should also stop putting men in prison. If you do for one, you need to do for the other. Equality means just that; equality.
