Pick Me Up! - - EASY EAT -

‘Prison has be­come lux­ury for in­mates, it’s ab­so­lutely ridicu­lous. Peo­ple are no longer de­terred from com­mit­ting crime as prison sounds like a lovely hol­i­day, pro­vides peo­ple with three hot meals a day, games con­soles, free ed­u­ca­tion, and now pos­si­bly so­cial me­dia, too! The jus­tice sys­tem is a joke.’ Levi Hether­ing­ton-scott, New­port

‘In­side a prison, all types of so­cial me­dia and e-mail should be blocked off the In­ter­net sys­tem like they do in some high schools. It’s not right that they could still be caus­ing a vic­tim dis­tress. Jail is pun­ish­ment, not a home.’ Court­ney Ce­cere, Car­luke

‘Should pris­on­ers be al­lowed so­cial me­dia? No! Prison is sup­posed too be a pun­ish­ment. Not any­thing more. No won­der peo­ple re-of­fend when they are given such a free ride.’ Na­talie Thomas, Mid­dles­brough

A spokesper­son for Face­book and In­sta­gram said, ‘We have wellestab­lished pro­cesses with law en­force­ment and the Min­istry of Jus­tice when we are no­ti­fied of ac­tive ac­counts be­ing used from prison.’ Speak­ing to The Guardian, they in­sisted they com­ply with le­gal or­ders and re­quire­ments.
