One reply on “Man pleads guilty to murder just before trial began”

  1. Beatrice Simon says:

    Just a question with an average of 40 murderers a year. Let suppose an average 0f 5 is charged, convicted sentenced . It means for the last 10 years. Where is the government going to find accommodation to house these miscreants? Our institution in Belisle is probably packed like sardines.

    Long tem residents of Belisle include the Primus’s, the Isreal the Collin Coco Brown and the list goes on. What a calamity. How much it cost to feed these prisoners? The Social impact of overcrowding is telling on the lives of its occupants . This is something that needs to be addressed.
