Putin signs 'humanitarian' decree pardoning his former nemesis and oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky after ten years in prison

Rivals: Putin has long singled out Khodorkovsky, who would be due for release in August, for bitter personal attacks, once saying that 'a thief should sit in jail'

Ferris released from prison today
 
 
 
 

ONE of the most notorious figures in Glasgow's underworld will be back on the streets today after serving two-thirds of a seven-year jail sentence for gun running. Paul Ferris, 38, will be released from the high security prison at Frankland, four miles outside Durham.

HMP Frankland confirmed the release date last night. An enforcer for the equally infamous Thompson crime clan in Glasgow during the 1980s, Ferris was jailed in 1998 after being caught ferrying three submachine guns and ammunition. Nicknamed Lucky and Houdini because of his escapes from the law and fellow gangsters, in 1992 he went on trial for the murder of Arthur Thompson Jr in Provanmill, Glasgow, the previous year, but was acquitted. The other men suspected of involvement in the shooting, Bobby Glover and Joe Hanlon, were murdered on the eve of Thompson Jr's funeral. Ferris detailed his criminal past in the book The Ferris Conspiracy, which sold 20,000 copies after a newspaper serialisation. Describing himself as a ''scud missile'' while acting for Arthur Thompson Snr, he confessed in the book to a catalogue of violence, including several stabbings and a scalping. Reg McKay, a former social worker and co-author of the book, said yesterday Ferris intended to turn his back on crime and become a full-time writer. His novel, Deadly Divisions, is due out in March. ''We already have several books in draft form, which we will begin working on as soon as he is out of prison,'' Mr McKay said. ''Paul has said goodbye to being a criminal and wants to draw on his experiences and his knowledge of the underworld to write about crime instead. ''He feels, as I do, that a lot of crime fiction is fabricated much of it lacks authenticity.'' He said the pair had already been approached by television producers to work as consultants on crime dramas. Strathclyde Police yesterday declined to comment on Ferris.  http://www.heraldscotland.com/sport/spl/aberdeen/ferris-released-from-prison-today-1.161334

Record numbers of Britain's most dangerous criminals are being moved to open prisons where they are more likely to escape

Tory MP Philip Davies has branded the figures 'horrifying'. Last year 175 prisoners absconded from open jails, including ten prisoners who disappeared within six weeks of each other

Prison Life:
 
The Uncomfortable Truths.
  
Rehabilitation?
 
There is no such thing within any prison.
 
The prison establishment is there to make sure you do not escape and pose a threat to the public.
 
Education?
 
There are educational facilities in place to try and educate the inmates.
 
Violence?
 
When men of violence are guarded by men of violence then it is inevitable that prison riots occur.
 
Contraband?
 
There was and still is a drugs problem in every prison.
 
Deterrent?
 
Almost 99.9% of inmates will re-offend shortly after they have been freed from prison.
 
 
 
We will focus on a docudrama approach to the subject matter.
 
Our aim is to explore the uncomfortable truths that are behind the prison walls.
 
 
We will focus on the  following prisons in the UK.
 
HMP Longriggend
 
HMP Barlinnie
 
HMP Glenochil
 
HMP Shotts
 
HMP Pentonvill
 
HMP Belmarsh
 
HMP Full Sutton
 
HMP Frankland
 
HMP Durham.
 
Our aim is to produce a short film on prison life.
 
Based on true events that will enhance the project.
 
We also aim to educate and to expose the myths.
 
There is no glamour in a criminal lifestyle.
 
With the right help people can change.
 
That is our mission.





 
 

What's the point of prison?
