Complaints from the prison

By johnboy - 16 January 2014 80

The wonder of FOI has produced a series of complaints from the Hume Hilton.

And you thought that wardrobe was a portal to a whole new world?

I particularly like the way the prison officials are nearly as incomprehensible as the inmates.

What’s Your opinion?

It can also be a political statement of sorts, or at least rationalised as such – (other people’s) property is theft; and, of course, a potent sense of entitlement and/or resentment is by no means the sole preserve of those who find themselves on the wrong side of the law.

But I thought you were an expert on everything?

Not even close to being.

I agree that it’s a bit rich for a prisoner to complain about family having to travel long distances to visit them, but I think it’s odd to use FIFO workers as the point of comparison. My heart doesn’t exactly bleed for the poor struggling mine workers.

Not suggesting one should feel sorry for mine worker, nor for the other professions that keep people away from their families for either long periods, or on important occasions. Doctors, ambos, police, truckies, etc. Just pointing out that there’s honest, hard working reasons to be away from family and from home and so I won’t offer any pity if the reason someone has chosen was being a blight on society.

But more to the point, so tired of these prisoners complaining about the hardship of family having to travel to visit them. Guess what, there’s mean and women working out in the mines earning an honest (and plentiful) crust for them and their family, spending weeks or even months at a time away from their family.

That’s very true. And for the rest of us, there’s surely something repugnant that those who repudiate society’s norms should then demand so much of society for themselves.

You don’t exactly need to be a handwriting expert to profile some of these prisoners. Suspect that first complainant never made it past high school given the double line, block style writing. Meanwhile the Prison officer who responded has some of the neatest cursive I’ve ever seen.

You committed a crime, you have no right to complain. Out taxes built that prison so you’re 90mins closer to Canberra, that’s all you get. If you can’t contribute to society as a law abiding citizen, don’t go crying about hardship.

watto23 3:24 pm 16 Jan 14

How the hell did he spell majority and not noodle correctly…..

And isn’t that the point of prison. I bet if he knew he wasn’t going to get “noodels” he’d still commit the crime 🙂

Maybe he should read Shy the Platypus?

MERC600 3:13 pm 16 Jan 14

Bit slack that custodial officers names have not been blacked out.

How_Canberran 3:01 pm 16 Jan 14

The prisoner is residing in a bastion of Human Rights compliance, and he wants for noodels (sic)? Heads will surely roll!

How Canberran.

HiddenDragon 2:30 pm 16 Jan 14

With spelling like that, Noodels (Romanoff?) has the makings of an ace Rioter – could we check his views on plastic bags, though?
