Inmates performing Thriller!

This is amazing!! An entire population of prision inmates in the Phillippines practicing a reenactment of Michael Jackson’s Thriller video — Thanks to John Brownlee who posted this originally … What struck me was his comment in his post:

Why the hell aren’t our own prisons trying something like this to boost morale?

I happen to agree with him — however, recently, we had a much milder version of this event happen here in Adelaide. You can read the whole story here, but basically the prison put on a show where the prisoners were the entertainment, and the prison manager was part of it.

She dressed as a fairy godmother and danced with inmates, including at least one murderer

and has now been banned from the State’s correctional services!!
What a totally different attitude eh?? I say give the inmates some fun … note the name of the state’s services: Correctional! It’s not ‘Lock em up and throw away the key’ … although I think that’s what our Premier and many others would rather have it be.
