    Murderers and rapists among 1,000 on the run

    Nineteen murderers and twelve rapists are among almost a thousand criminals who are missing and being sought by police after they broke the terms of their release from jail.

    Jack Straw, the Justice Secretary, told MPs that senior police officers had ordered forces throughout England and Wales to take “priority action” to find, arrest and return to jail offenders convicted of sexual or violent offences.

    Mr Straw said that the Association of Chief Police Officers had also asked forces to review and renew their efforts to arrest the other offenders on the list.

    Overall, 954 offenders released from prisons before March this year had not been found and returned to jail by the end of last month, the Ministry of Justice disclosed today.

    How hard can it be to keep people behind bars?

    I live in a prison town. Population ~20k, and 4 prisons. The siren indicating an escaped prisoner(they are euphemistically called "walkoffs") goes off almost daily. I am about 5 miles outside town and I can hear that damn thing here...

    yeah, let's release a thousand criminals and expect them to keep their word. What could go wrong?

    What do we expect from Labour

    They think prison is not meant to be punishment but rehabilitation. Mistake number one.

    Never trust a criminal.
