Do the crime, do the dyin'

If a bird flu epidemic hit New Zealand prisons some prisoners would be let out while the rest would be left in the prison while they were locked down (no-one in and no-one out) until the epidemic had run its course. Apparently that's not good enough for some:

Sensible Sentencing Trust spokesman Garth McVicar said prisoners should not be freed under any circumstances, even if keeping them in jail meant they stood a high risk of dying from bird flu.
Death as an unfortunate side effect of being in prison - huh. I'm glad I'm against prisons in general.
