Nonce walks out of jail

A rapist serving a life sentence has walked out of an open prison. Police say that he is dangerous and should not be approached.

I know, you are waiting for the punchline. Unfortunately, there isn't one. If Adam Mark is 'a danger to the public', then why oh why oh why was he ever allowed to be in a position where he could be dangerous? Why was he not kept securely behind bars? Open prisons have developed a deservedly bad reputation in recent years, but this one really takes the biscuit. Open prisons should be for relatively harmless souls who are unlikely to reoffend, not hideously dangerous people like this.
