Child porn in the prison

By johnboy - 21 December 2012 89

Just what sort of den of iniquity have we created out at the Monaro Marriott?

The ABC has a story on child smut raids conducted at the Alexander Maconochie Centre:

Detectives searched the jail on Tuesday.

They seized several items, including computers and video recorders, suspected to contain images of child abuse.

Digital forensic specialists have been called in to examine the devices.

Corrections Minister Shane Rattenbury says a number of detainees are under investigation.

Mayor Rattenbury, one imagines, will be thanking his Labor colleagues for offloading the prison onto him post election.

What’s Your opinion?

This is simply incomprehensible

You just learned that people smuggle contraband into prisons?

This is yet another example of how grossly mismanaged this territory has and continues to be.

Hysterical much?

The do gooders win again.

Because there’s never, ever any contraband in the not-so-nice prisons. They just sit around all day reading Little Golden Books with the corners rounded off.

Actually no i’m well aware of how pathetic the system is and i merely feel the need to express how revolted i am by the farktards who are responsible for allowing this totally unacceptable situation to occur.You however seem to spend a lot of time coming in your nappy.

I think child porn is a pretty big step up from the usual contraband.

This has a lot more to do than just contraband getting into the prison, that will never stop. It’s about how Bernadette Mitcherson and her cronies have taken the powers away from staff at the AMC.

She has single handedly prevented the dog squad from conducting their duties properly hence more contraband enters the AMC than it really should. She has got the officers so scared to do their jobs effectively that assaults on officers by prisoners are becoming more prevalent.

And the reason why prisoners allowed to have access to the computers, the Internet or digital video recorders is because the management at the AMC are afraid to say ‘No’ to the prisoners in case they get a ‘Please explain’ letter from Ms Mitcherson.

I suspect that the Mr Rattenbury, like most of you on this forum, won’t give two hoots about what happens at the AMC as long as it doesn’t affect you. As someone whose partner works there – I’m afraid of the preventable dangers working there presents to him everyday.

Ms Mitcherson should be stood down and investigated as soon as possible.

This is a sickening thought for any Canberra citizen.

The Canberra Crime article on the focus on human rights at the AMC says a lot about how being in prison is handled in the ACT. The do gooders win again.

‘Former Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC) superintendent Doug Buchanan says that jailers are put under “enormous pressure” to focus on the human rights of prisoners, compromising security at the jail.”

Another example of attempted cover ups at the highest level at Corrections – which starts and ends with the Executive Director.

The Mayor of Canberra should instigate an inquiry into her continual interference of the daily running of the AMC which is jeopardising the safety of everyone who resides or works there.

lol, the Mayor thinks everyone is innocent and wants to give them needles. I think he would rather go down the softly softly path and introduce “hug a crim day”

They let prisoners sit around for hours on computers rather than putting in a gym where they can work out without causing any harm to anybody. I knew something like this would happen.

Do they read The RiotACT?

Yes a lack of gym facilities leads to becoming a Pedo. Well known fact.

It goes to show, while the prisoners, clients, inmates, convicts, what ever PC name they are going with these days, give them a little, they push and take a mile.

While I understand that locking people up 24 hours a day in a cell does not contribute to rehabilitation, I think a sliding scale should be used. Get locked up with little to no access to anything other than life’s necessities, then after periods of good behaviour, attending rehab classes etc and showing remorse for what crime has been committed, the person should be allowed to have more of life’s luxuries. I don’t know if the psychology would work, but having consequences for their actions and learning that contributing and being “nice and good” will open more doors in society.

But hey, who knows?

Well theyve caught them so not completely mismanaged surely?
