Holloway

Has anyone else been watching this? Last night was about the young girls in Holloway. I could have wept for some of them, especially the girl who's mum died when she was 13 and went off the rails, ended up in care and later in prison.

I saw the first one but didn't catch last nights. It amazed me that young women were actually committing crimes in order to get into Holloway and have access to the drug rehab. It just shows how poor the services are for junkies when they have to resort to such desperate measures, because a lot of the time they're drawn into drugs because of things that have happened.

I watched this weeks episode and whilst prison is supposed to be a punishment, it's also supposed to be for rehabilitation, so I think being separated from your family at christmas would be bad enough for most, never mind cancelling karaoke etc.

I also feel really sorry for the prison guards though, some of the prisoners would drive you insane.
