The Mobile Problem - By Prisoner Ben

A few of you seemed to get worked up over the piece I wrote about my involvement with mobile phones.
I said nothing that wasn't essentially known to the Parole Board already. My last hearing, late last year, was around the issue -and they were not overly exercised by the issue then.

The issue, as ever, is a simple one. The test for release is whether I pose a more than minimal risk to life and limb. Not whether I'm a perfect citizen, easy to deal with, or whether I break the odd rule here and there. It's dangerousness. And still, they can't point to any violent behaviour in 31 years. You'd think that would outweigh a brief flirtation with a mobile phone...
