The “lucky” man 152

A sad reality!

This morning I was sitting on a bench next to a homeless man, I asked him how he ended up this way.

He said: “Up until last week, I still had it all!

A cook cooked my meals, my room was cleaned, my clothes were washed, pressed, I had a roof over my head, I had TV, internet, I went to the gym, the pool, the library, I could still go to school”.

I asked him, “What happened? Drugs? Alcohol? Divorce?”

“Oh no, nothing like that he said. No, no … I got out of prison!”

    • There are a multitude of reasons why people commit crimes repeatedly, and none of them are to do with 4-star hotel prisons.

    • Well you obviously do not know any ex prisoners then do you, cos that is the main reason they reoffend as they can not cope outside and the have everything inside that they could ever want….have you seen the figures of over crowded jails now compared to 10 years ago….if prisons weren’t 4 star motels they would be empty.

  3. Living the life of luxury and then bang back to reality, I just wonder why they get such luxuries in jail.

    • this is so far from the truth,you need to visit a jail and see the truth,there is no internet,you have to buy your tv,wash your own clothes,hot meals are few and far between,pay for phone calls which are limited to 5min,and are can spend long periods in lock having a record which makes it nearly impossible to get a job when you are realesed.that is why so many end up back in LUXURY.

    • I agree with you Robyn. I don’t see this as a joke at all. And that is why so many end up back in jail. They don’t learn any skills that could enable them to move on and live a functional life.

    • Vivienne You are stupid if you think jail is luxury. What do you know about it! Stupid comment from an ignorant idiot!

    • Maybe prisoners should go to nursing homes and the elderly go to prison….a much better deal apparently!.
