Convicts being “treated” with Wii


Instead of punching license plates when serving hard time, convicts at the UK’s top-security Broadmoor Hospital are being “treated” with Wii Sports and Wii Fit. With 22 newly purchased Wii consoles hooked up to plasma TVs, Broadmoor has more smiles packed in it than a Chuck E. Cheese’s. A spokesperson for Broadmoor noted that while Wii Sports and their other “Xbox and PlayStation” consoles are for treatment, Wii Fit is part of a strategy to increase exercise and improve fitness.

“When you think of their crimes and the misery they have caused, you have to ask if it’s right for society to pay to entertain them,” said the Sun‘s source. It may be labeled a hospital, but there are some characters even Ganondorf couldn’t hold a candle to. Peter Sutcliffe, also known as “The Yorkshire Ripper,” murdered 13 women in the 1980’s and is serving a life imprisonment sentence at the facility. We hear he plays a mean game of Wii Bowling. No, really. He does.
