Jail strippers will attract criminals
NO MATTER how you look at it, what happened in the Johannesburg Correctional Centre, which inmates jokingly refer to as Sun City, is disgusting. The departed youth of 1976 must be turning in their graves.
How can Youth Month be celebrated by entertaining prisoners with strippers? When schoolchildren took to the streets on June 16, 1976, they did not want to be taught in Afrikaans and they were against the Bantu education system.
The June 16, 1976 uprising was not so that prisoners could be entertained by strippers, nor was it so they could live a five-star life in prison. What message does this convey to would-be offenders? The graphic pictures of prisoners and strippers we saw online and in newspapers will only attract more criminals.
You cannot rehabilitate a criminal by exposing him or her to strippers.
Crime in South Africa is spiralling out of control and hardened criminals are treated with kids gloves. South Africans deserve to know who funded this raunchiness.
Life appears to be good in prison and, as long as there is leniency and entertainment for criminals, we will continue to see more crime and more mob justice as the people take the law into their own hands.
Shame on whoever orchestrated this. Hillbrow
