Time for a new prison system

I read an article by Fiach Kelly under the heading: "Prisons to spend €200,000 on 'lavish' equipment for gyms" (Irish Independent, October 13).

I double-checked the date on the paper to make sure it was not April 1. Unfortunately, the article was not a joke.

What is next for the pampered criminals, Justice Minister Dermot Ahern? Swimming pools, jacuzzis and saunas?
