Dominique Strauss-Kahn held in Rikers Island Jail

No holiday camp for Strauss-Kahn
The City of New York has a Correction Department and their choicest facility is Rikers Island. Where better than this to send the head of the International Monetary Fund. Dominique Strauss-Kahn has moved from a $3,000-a-night penthouse suite to a cell in one of America's most notorious prisons. He will also get turkey burger dinners. What a thought.

Far from correcting many of the inmates, there seems to be a culture of fear, favouritism and being preyed upon. Mr Strauss-Kahn will have a one-person cell, for his own security, officials say. "This is not about isolating the inmate from any human contact. This is about preventing the inmate from being victimised or harmed in some way as a result of his high profile," a spokesman for New York's Department of Correction said. You don't say!

If they were serious about correcting the criminals and the alleged criminals on remand why not get Strauss-Kahn to give them lessons in financial management. Then the corrected characters could set about reforming the outside world. Who better than them to spot wrongdoing!


If he knows French literature well, he already has an escape plan set out for him: http://andreasmoser.wordpress.com/2011/05/18/dominique-strauss-kahn-rikers-island/
