compo
 n.— «Astonishing as it seems, it is not the victims of crime who are benefiting from this particular compensation bonanza, but the criminals themselves. It’s the ones who are behind bars, not the ones outside trying to rebuild shattered lives who seem to be coining the compo.» —“Going soft on crime” Express & Star (Wolverhampton, England) May 20, 2006.
