Serco faces $200k fine for escape

You know, I sometimes wonder why the cost to the public purse isn’t also added on top of the fine.   It took over 100 officers to hunt the criminals and yet the cost of those men and resources have not been taken into account.   It seems to me the state government are lacking the balls to force SERCO to do things right, but rather allow SERCO to use their insurance to cover the costs.
