With the education system bringing a larger gap in quality between private and state schools, the privatisation of prisons has seen a record numbers of criminal families going to increasing lengths to get their kin into Dunstable’s private prison operated by G4S, as opposed to other local state alternatives.
“We have found people using false addresses, lying about siblings who are already in the prison and even impersonating family members in an attempt to secure places” the Governor of the prison has said.
“We are now so over-subscribed we are having to ask judges to do home visits to verify the convicts’ details before sentencing”
Over the past three years, the number of investigations into suspicious applications has risen almost 20-fold, revealing the desperate attempts families will go to. Unfortunately, this has meant the crime rate in Dunstable has soared, as parents encourage their children to commit their crime in the prison’s catchment area.
“Our investigations have shown gangs walking side-by-side for 20 minutes before getting into a serious fight with each other just so the crime is committed in the correct postcode” the Governor continued. “In the most deceptive of cases, some criminals have even taken the blame for crimes they did not commit just to be able to go private”
“And with the parents encouraging their criminal children to lie, it seems you just can’t trust anyone these days”
