You then "sofa surf" with friends that are providing you warmth from the snow, in return to go on to better funding to crime, ie commercial burglary, smash and grab, you are now aged 21, your arrested and spend time, along with the higher experience, professional, prisoners, you learn welding, or whatever they decide to teach you, you take the courses, that are offered in h.m.p, your released, your now released, into a hostel, trying for employment, you meet a new "beau", and move in, you've completed your parole, you've abided the rules, you start to try to turn your life around, by living without your old ways of life before.
You apply for work, you may even get a reply, if your accepted by informing them of your past, your nearly in the final three applicants, until your told i'm sorry, sir or madam, you were not accepted, years have gone by, you are scrimping by, do the odd decorating job, window cleaning, (although, by "rights you are suppose to declare, your paltry earnings, but you dont because of, setting you back, with the beaucratic system, that we have, in allowing,say a six months grace of what "I believe would be long enough, for any person that does not want to join, "what I call, "We I be employed next year, brigade!").
You then start a college course, you get your diplomas, you start to find job, you get a reply, and then accepted, your life has started to turn around, aged 25, you buy a small house, you decide now things are looking up, a mortgage first with your "highly, professional partner, things are going well, then all of a sudden, whilst your away, on holiday on a Thomsons holiday you've been burgled, you call the police, you report everything, from the Ford mondeo to the plasma TV, plus, personal damage to your home.
You think well at least, we were not in, when it happened, as you know your work leaves your partner on their own, whilst your working," thank god we were insured", you call up your insurance broker to report with crime number, "You arrange for the assessors for appointment as they want to inspect your premises, ok they say you will be hearing from us via a letter, the letter arrives, with them saying i'm very sorry, but we are not going to pay out, reason being you never declared in your application that you were an ex-offender.
"Well there were no questions to that effect, you say, the answer comes back, well you should have read the small print. This did happen to me many years ago, with a car, because, I was in employment, but when I was unemployed and had the claim, my claim was not carried out!
So you see,apart from the "ex- offender, of whom was a commercial burglar and thief, he or she had paid their debt to society, most people say of prison life is easy, maybe, but I believe, that the legalise crooks, are the ones that should be in debt to society,i.e, banks, insurers, pension schemes that take our money, or is it a clever way, if we as a society support majority of the prisoners, when they come out, with resettlement programmes would, there be alot of courts and lawyers, offices, with "closing down signs, or prison officers queuing up in the in the job centres. "it really makes me wonder", we are the smallest country, in Europe, with highest prison population, at 50,000 per prisoner, thats without the court bills, think about it.
