I would say “only in America,” but this happened in Scotland, pursuant to European human rights laws. Seems that in some Scottish prisons, for a number of years, the prisoners had to “slop out” (clean out) their own toilets. And? Per the Daily Record:
The slopping-out bonanza began in 2004 when knife-wielding mugger Robert Napier used European human rights law to win a court case against the prison service.
So now Scottish prisoners, and ex-prisoners, are cashing in. As for the title of the post …
A drug dealer used his s2000 compensation payout for “slopping out” in jail to buy heroin to sell to his pals.
The taxpayers’ money allowed scheming junkie Joseph Torano to get a discount on the drugs by buying in bulk.
Here’s how the bust of Mr. Torano went down:
Police raided the house after a tip-off. Hannah Kennedy, prosecuting, said Torano appeared from a bedroom in his underwear and a wrap of heroin fell out of his boxer shorts.
Detectives saw something in his mouth, which turned out to be another package of drugs, and a full body search uncovered a third stash.
And check out the language this Member of Parliament used to describe the situation, which has already cost the Scottish taxpayers millions:
“The SNP Scottish government will end slopping out and clean up the mess these administrations have created.”
Get it? “… clean up the mess …” Brilliant! To read more (quite a bit) click here.
