Greek Prison Guards Issued With Guns Dating From 1911

Greek Prison

A ridiculous situation. Excerpt:

Greek prison guards are to go on strike to demand a replacement of their antiquated American-made guns.

The weapons were used by the US Cavalry in 1911 and safety experts have advised that they should not be fired.

Prison staff are now concerned about security as inmates have become wise to the faulty arsenal and escape attempts are on the increase.

Officers are calling for new weapons and more staff to deal with the country's growing prison population.

Prison officers guarding Greece's prison perimeters complain that the guns no longer scare inmates, who have become more daring believing they will not be fired at.

If this were a movie it would be funny. Not so funny if you're a guard yourself...
