169 officers guard a single prisoner

Recommended Posts

Hum    6,931

A deportation detention centre in Berlin is now practically empty, with just one prisoner left awaiting deportation. But there are still 169 officers currently being paid to guard him. :wacko:

Berlin Interior Minister Frank Henkel admitted to members of the Green and Pirate Parties last week that only one person was currently being held in the former East German women's prison, though there is space for 214 inmates, the Berliner Zeitung reported.

To guard the detainee, 169 police officers are available, which according to Henkel, at a cost of nearly ?1 million per month.

The anti-deportation initiative, the Berlin Refugee Council and the opposition are all calling for the detention centre to be closed. The initiative said the sole detainee was being kept in solitary confinement-like conditions. Police did not comment.

The situation at Gr?nau is not new, the Berliner Zeitung reported. For some time now the centre has only been used at 20 percent of capacity, part of a nationwide decline in deportations prompted by changes in immigration law and the expansion of the European Union to include Bulgaria and Romania.

Berlin is currently in talks with the state of Brandenburg on the possibility of a combined detention centre located in the eastern town of Eisenh?ttenstadt. Henkel said it would probably not be possible close the centre in Gr?nau at the moment, because its presence was mandated by the law.

Sounds like its time to close the doors on that prison and move her somewhere else. But lets look on the bright side. The Government was creating 169 extra jobs.

That's not a robot. It's a Cyborg. Much more expensive.

Huh? If anything this is exactly the opposite of prisons in the US.

Bureaucracy at its finest. Waste money for something that clearly isn't needed simply because they are too lazy to change an outdated law.

No, because, according to the article, the prisoner is male.
