Attempted breakout at the prison

By johnboy - 12 August 2012 7

This in from Justice and Community Safety:

The Justice and Community Safety Directorate can confirm that an incident occurred at the Alexander Maconochie Centre after lockdown on the evening of 11 August 2012 which resulted in two detainees causing damage to their cell window, enabling them to exit their cell block.

The detainees then broke through internal fences to separate precincts within the gaol.

The damage was discovered by a Corrections Officer as part of a routine patrol and a short time later the detainees were located and returned to secure cells.

No attempt was made to breach the external perimeter.

As the incident is currently being investigated by ACT Policing it would be inappropriate to provide further comment at this time.

What’s Your opinion?

ball and chain would have stopped this.

What do you think they’d throw though the window?

I would design the ball to be wider than the window. Actually, i would have designed the windows to be thin enough that one wouldn’t be able to squeeze their head through in the first place.

It’s not exactly rocket science is it Henry?

They shouldn’t be allowed to have windows.

Damage to the cell window? It’s bloody amazing what they can do with those syringes!
