I have just recently split from my partner who is in prison at the moment. He was convicted of a drug related crime to feed his habit. The problem is, he went in prison as a drug addict, and he is being released as a drug addict because he has used drugs all the way through his sentence. Prison has taught him nothing. Sending him there was a waste of tax payers money straight down the line. The UK system fail to rehabilitate offenders who are then passed on to probation on release. I will defend the likes of probation because what in Gods name can they do if offenders are being released from prison bigger junkies than when they first went in?
