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! LAWL. To read more (quite a bit) click here.
