Can you fucking READ!?
Women's prisons should close, says justice taskforce
The report said community sentences instead of prison would help reduce reoffending among women
Prisons 'not working' says Clarke
Women should not be sent to prison and should instead serve community sentences, according to a new report by the Women's Justice Taskforce.
The focus should be on health, housing and treatment for drug addiction to reduce reoffending, its report said.
It called for a director of women's justice to be appointed to provide "clear leadership and accountability".
The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) welcomed the report and said it was carefully considering the recommendations.
The taskforce, formed of senior police officers, magistrates, economists and penal reformers, was set up last year by the Prison Reform Trust.
Its report called for the closure of women's prisons to be accelerated, a cross-government strategy to divert women from crime and greater focus on schemes to tackle mental health needs.
You're using ad-hominems by implying that I'm anti-woman. You know this. Don't play stupid.
But seriously though, can you read?
And then this happened:
"Last month, Justice Secretary Kenneth Clarke's released plans to keep prison for the most serious offenders and cut the number of jail terms of under 12 months."
Kenneth Clarke said that women's prisons will remain open for the most severe offenders, yet the WJT wishes to close all of them.
WFT= forces that want to close female prisons.
Justice secretary Kenneth Clarke= Intervened and said that female prisons will remain open for the most severe offenders.
