Its that time of numerical and statistical madness again. Having just gotten over the incredibly tedious activity monitoring forms for the targeted and statutory two weeks, after being amongst those carefully and specially selected (again) from the CTCC massed ranks of the Specialist support Department, no sooner has the ink dried on the lines and thoughts to one less piece of junk mail to complete (until next year, when we will be carefully and specially selected, again no doubt) I found that being incarcerated as part of your debt to society is not all that is cracked up to be. Not in France anyway.
Not only do the le’criminale recidivists face stiffer sentences and slightly harsher conditions, but also face the prospect of being shot by a sniper if they have offended the wrong people.
Yes, that’s right. French criminals have a new worry on their minds………snipers on nearby hillsides.
I kid you not. Like a scene from a crime thriller film, a prisoner who faced interrogation over a murder was shot dead inside his French jail by a sniper positioned on a nearby hill. Another inmate, a friend of the dead man, was injured in the attack during which five shots were fired into the exercise yard of the jail at Varces-Grenoble, in the southeast of France.
I can just imagine the trouble this would cause if some disenfranchised victim, some do-gooder vigilante or some form of self appointed justice exterminator decided to go amok, gun in hand, dishing out their own form of summary justice by taking the law into their own hands.
