Prison bashing

By johnboy - 28 January 2013 50

ACT Policing is investigating a serious assault at the Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC) on Sunday morning (27 January).

Police were called in when a 27-year-old male inmate punched another male inmate in the face, causing serious injuries.

The injured inmate was conveyed to The Canberra Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery. ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations (CI) team is conducting further investigations into the incident.

Actually he is aboriginal.

Not that I’m saying I feel particularly bad for Mr. King. I just wish we could put all the kiddy-fiddlers and racists together in one giant sack and dump them out at sea.

You are very hit and miss to me with your comments, but we can agree 100% on this statement bro.

A few things stink about this incident… If the bloke is a rockspider, he should not have been at the clinic at the same time as mainstream inmates (presence of officers or not). The question is, did the administration give the OK to do so to save time (and therefore money) by only having one medical/methadone parade? Did individual officers decide to take a shortcut rather than conduct separate escorts? Was the assault ‘arranged’ by the victim to ensure an early parole and some setting up again money by way of victims compo? (I have no answers, I just hope the right questions get asked.) Looks to me like Corrections ACT is more than capable of running a safe and well controlled syringe exchange what???
O, and Comic and gamer_nerd, I can assure you that Methadone does get shared quite frequently… sometimes by way of a bit of foam or apple under the tongue when undergoing ‘supervised’ dosing, or by the threat of an utter flogging if the recipient doesn’t vomit it back up. (It’s then strained, watered down and re-swallowed by the stand-over man/woman or on-sold for tobacco/head jobs/ or favors involving violence.

I assume you’re talking about compensation?

Regardless of the offences for which he is incarcerated, he’s entitled to safety. And for the neanderthals who believe that prison is the place where those who deserve it get assaulted, how does this help anyone’s rehabilitation? How does this make them better people when they return to our community?

And what about the perpetrators of prison violence? If you condone (or applaud) the assault of a person because of their offending, then surely you also turn a blind eye to those who are their assailants. How does perpetrating violence on “those who deserve it” whilst in prison affect a person’s likelihood of rehabilitation if that person has a history of violent offences? Will bashing an offender make the basher a better person when they return to the community?

And what about the costs to the community? Not only is it already very expensive to incarcerate an offender, but the community now has to stump up the costs of medical treatment (the bloke might lose an eye) and potentially also the costs of compensation.

Still think a prison bashing is a great idea for those who “deserve it”?

Rehabilitation? Is that why they bash, rape and murder? So that they can go to Gaol and become rehabilitated? Surely you jest?

Well according to the Crimes

King was jailed in June 2012 for 12 years for sexually abusing young boys in the 1980s and 1990s. ‘The 69-year-old former Queensland fast bowler claimed he abused the boys to make them better athletes and to help prepare them for manhood.’

How magnanimous of him and to top it off the POS will be eligible for parole in 2016,a whole 8 years before his total sentence!

I thought the rock spiders were kept away from the mainstream prisoners? This will cost the ACT government a fortune when Jack Pappas, our very own ‘celebrity’ lawyer gets hold of it.

Why is this even news? A shitbag punches another shitbag in prison – who cares?

He was also a professional boxer, and a pretty good one apparently – winning 28 of 32 fights. I knew him when he coached Ginninderra Cricket Club about 12-15 years ago. Whilst he’s getting on a bit in years, he’s not a person that I’d want to pick on if he’s still anything like he was then.

Just for future reference, that Indian ‘pet-hate’ of yours is more commonly referred to as ‘racism’.

So punching in the ring in more ways than one?

Seems he’s nothing like he was then given he got his face rearranged. The other guy wasn’t carted off the TCH with him.

And yes I condone bashings of rock spiders in prisons, to the person who raised the “counter-arguments”.

God knows there is rarely justice elsewhere.

Nasty stuff. It’s pretty hard to expect crims to change if we’re going to condone this kind of behaviour.
