Prison guards' strike leads to 52 inmates being let loose5/27/2012
State workers went on strike in Norway for the first time in 28 years, and we tip our hats to the public workers who stood up for their rights ... Except the prison guards, whose joining the strike meant 52 criminals were let loose on the public. (Probably not the best way to demonstrate you deserve a raise, guards). The Bjoergvin prison outside Bergen, which took part in the strike, is an "open prison," but some there are still serving time for violence and sex crimes. They could not maintain the number of prisoners with no guards, so they released 4 on probation and gave 48 more a "five-day furlough." We'll be very interested to see how many report back.
How many prisoners do you think will return?
