I have been reading Pat's post and think she is absolutely spot on with what she says. My prison visiting experience this week was awful. A little girl was crying clinging on to her mum in the search area and her mum turned around and told her to stop being so f-ing soft because they were ONLY in prison!!!! I thought Jesus Christ, how awful is that and to hear it turned my stomach. The little girl then started crying even more. Poor little un. A lot of money needs ploughing in to some of the communities where children think prison is acceptable and part of life. So very sad.
