Greece Boasts Unlocked Prison


There has got to be a way to keep the convicts inside Greece…but Athens just hasn’t found a way. What’s going on when the same inmates break out twice within a three year period?  Not only that, the brother of one of the inmates, who was also locked up in the same prison, masterminded the first breakout.

The second prison break sounds like something out of one of Angelina Jolie’s films when you read about how a helicopter came down over the courtyard and a woman threw the two men a rope while firing on the prison guards with an automatic rifle.

The authorities are embarrassed and mad.  The Justice Minister started firing everyone and  making threats.  The partners in crime are on the loose.  Read about these career criminals and be glad that they are all the way over in Greece.

  1. Re:Black Men in America’s Jails and Prisons

    Too many young black men continue to waste their precious lives in a state of neo bondage. As a correctional educator for the past several years, I can tell you that the prisons and jails in this great country are overflowing with young African-Americans (You already know). All of my students are young black men – one exception. As a teacher, it saddens me to see the talent that is wasted on a daily basis.

    We all need to start doing more to address this escalating dilemma. The youth of this country don’t need to rot in jail, while we (Americans) ignore the problem. Something is causing this horrible trend to continue. You may ask yourself ”What can I do?”. There is no easy answer, but you need to do something. A few suggestions would be:

    organize sports functions (basketball leagues, football leagues, etc.)
    talk to kids at school
    write books
    contact government officials
    do volunteer work
    tutor kids
    take kids fishing, camping, etc.

    The point here is to start doing something. If we simply ignore the problem, where do you think we will be in 10 years pertaining to this issue?

    For my part, I have written a book aimed at helping young black men who are already incarcerated.

    The book is called:
    Black Choices, A young black man’s guide to prison survival

    ISBN: 1-60813-727-9, 83 pages, 6 x 9,
    The book can be ordered through or by calling 301/695-1707
    This book can make a real difference to the young man who is incarcerated. It can help him to negotiate prison life more successfully and also start planning for what life brings after prison is over. If you have a loved one or friend in jail, consider sending him this most important book. I believe it will help his life to start getting back on the road to a more successful future. Any help getting the word out about this book will be greatly appreciated. I truly care about my students and the overall plight of too many young black men in America’s correctional centers.
