Open Prison: A contradiction in terms

My dictionary defines prison as "a place of confinement, especially a public building for the confinement of criminals. How about yours?

ps On the million to one chance that someone from the Home Office is reading this, then perhaps he/she be so kind to inform us why convicted murderers and rapists are being kept (or, more to the point, not being kept) in 'open' prisons?

"Open Prison" is almost a big a contradiction in terms as "Life Imprisonment" that isn't for life.
