Commit A Crime - Bag A Wii

Posted by Sammy Barker

While most of you law abiding citizens are still struggling to either: afford the new Nintendo console, or; find the new Nintendo console in a shop, you might find it refreshing to know that foreign prisoners have access to the console whenever they desire.

Alongside being able to play Super Mario Galaxy the collection of foreign murderers, paedophiles and rapists also have access to:

  • Giant plasma TVs;
  • A music room with expensive gear;
  • Cash rewards for playing football.

What's more - all the luxuries are paid for by you - the tax payer.

Mark Wallace, of the Taxpayers’ Alliance, said: “It’s a disgrace. Taxpayers are funding a lavish lifestyle for people who should not even be in this country.”

According to what one (unnamed) Senior Official told The Sun newspaper:

“There are plasma TVs in some cells – and 48in ones in the communal areas.

“Some detainees have Nintendo Wiis. If the consoles go wrong staff are sent to the nearest Argos to pick up a replacement.

“The music room has guitars and a drum kit. And there are £5 prizes for the winners of five-a-side tournaments.

“Many law-abiding people wouldn’t be able to afford the same perks."

One should take the source with a pinch of salt but also one can relate to the seemingly apparent luxuries a lot of these detainees seem to be getting.

Prison should be humane but not spring break. The whole purpose is to strip those who have committed crimes of their life quality.
