The Fairer Sex…

Female serial criminals will be helped to put a stop to their trail of offending after a windfall of Government cash.

The money will be spent over three years in Sussex to crack down on the number of repeat offences carried out by women.

Taking Kipling’s exhortation a bit too far, surely?

Sussex Criminal Justice Board is one of six organisations in the country to win the bid for almost £194,000 from the Ministry of Justice.

Nope, from us, the poor bloody taxpayer!

Police and crime commissioner Katy Bourne, who chairs the board, said the funding would help put a stop to a cyclical life of crime for vulnerable women and give them the chance for a future.

She said: “Almost half of women released from prison reoffend within a year. We know that many live with a range of complex issues including substance misuse, mental health problems and domestic violence.

They need specialist support and intervention to improve lives and end the scourge of reoffending which costs the taxpayer £15 billion a year.”

You could say the same of the men. What happened to equality?

Justice Minister Phillip Lee said many female criminals have “complex circumstances” and the funding would make the streets safer.

By institutionalising the concept of the pussy pass?

    Apart from the outrageous gender bias, let’s also consider the phrase “Almost half of women released from prison reoffend within a year”. Wrong.

    What it means is that almost half of women released from prison are CAUGHT reoffending within a year – the number who actually reoffend is unknown, so they’re playing with dodgy data from the start.

      Good point!

    This is support for the recently released, which is needed because there was insufficient support during their incarceration. These women have been separated from family and, in many cases, their own children, so although support on release is obviously welcome, there should have been much more support whilst they were inside. Will Mrs Maybe’s soon-to-be-new-regime address these issues?

      They’ve been separated from family by their own actions. And the judicial system bends over backwards to avoid doing that anyway.

      So why should they need ‘support’ to avoid breaking the law? I don’t!

    “These women have been separated from family and, in many cases, their own children,…….”. So, whose fault is that? If they really cared that much for their family and children, they wouldn’t have committed a crime serious enough to receive a custodial sentence. And now some SJW wants to give them tax payer funded victimhood. Pussy pass indeed.

    Fair points.

    However, if not just punishment, but reducing re-offending is one of the aims of the prison regime, re-education and training courses during incarceration are easily justified – eventually they reduce recurring judicial costs and prison numbers – and they are much more effective than this “support” after release.
    Obviously there are quite a few offenders unwilling, unable or incapable of changing their attitudes – it’s the others who would benefit, as would society as a whole with reduced crime.
