Is this the Least Surprising Headline, Ever?

The idea was to ease up on the prisoners overcrowded in Italy's jails, ok good idea. The problem was, no one thought of building more jails - just release the people in the jails, just because they thought it was a good idea. Did they think the criminals in jail weren't, you know, criminals?

Mass pardon for convicts in Italy leads to a crime wave

By Peter Popham in Milan

Published: 06 August 2006

As a way of easing pressure on Italy's overcrowded jails, the mass pardon that began to come into effect last week has the advantage of simplicity. But as a stream of released prisoners began heading straight back into the cells - one for attempting to strangle his former wife, others for attempted robbery - Italians began asking themselves if Romano Prodi's government had fully thought the measure through.

In addition to being simple, it is traditional: the last such jail-emptying exercise was in 1990. This time again, prisoners serving terms of three years or less are being released, with the exception of convicts guilty of Mafia crimes, terrorism, sexual violence or (a little oddly) usury. With 62,000 prisoners crammed in jails overcrowded by nearly 50 per cent, Justice Minister Clemente Mastella hopes to see the back of 12,000 of the state's involuntary guests.
