More Toys for Prisoners?

The Herald reports today that Toys have been removed from Christchurch Men's Prison's visiting area after they were used for fighting and drug smuggling.

WB says this is excellent at last the Corrections Department is treating prisoners as prisoners.

But wait there is more;

The Herald went on to quote Southern Assistant Regional Manager for the Department of Corrections Ian Burke "Mr Burke said a more suitable range of toys were being looked at to replace those that had been confiscated."


WB wonders if the new toys will be in time for Christmas.

This readers is a classic example of what is wrong with this Labour Government. New toys for incarcerated criminals rather than providing some toys for the Sallys to give to disadvantaged kids at Christmas.
