One issue that has been raised in the UK is the issue of prisoners playing on Playstation, Xbox and Nintendo systems.

Some of those games were bought with taxpayer money and others were just bought by the prisoners themselves.  An audit was carried out and they found up to 12,948 game consoles in prison and other institutions with only 83,600 prisoners.  1715 of them were purchased by the prison system with tax payer money.

In fact, it was admitted that there was nothing stopping the prisoners from buying violent games and some violent games might have been bought by the taxpayers.

I know, plus... tax money is being spent on it. Their government must be as screwy as ours.

Good to see you, GadgeTrader  Smiley

Them letting the prisoners have playstations and Xboxes is one of the stupidest things I've seen in a while.

Makes prison look kind of good to some criminals, I`d imagine.
