PEN­SION­ERS BE­HIND BARS

ABC2, 10.10pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

This isn’t pen­sion­ers shoplift­ing be­cause they can’t af­ford their next meal. Th­ese guys are ca­reer crim­i­nals – se­nior cit­i­zen drug deal­ers, em­bez­zlers, fraud­sters and brothel madams. It’s all part of a “grey crime- wave” sweep­ing the UK, where peo­ple aged 60 or older are ap­par­ently the fastest­grow­ing group in­side Bri­tish jails. An­thony, 67, faked his own death but left his own fin­ger­prints on the death cer­tifi­cate, while Adele main­tains her brothel em­pire de­vel­oped only be­cause she wanted to work from home as a masseuse. Age hasn’t made them any wiser with their ex­cuses.
