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?

Ah, at last someone using their noodle.

Although I’d not want to be touched by his noodly appendage if I were in durance vile. (I was going to say in the pokey, but the innuendo was just too much.)

To be fair they were probably the ones who put in the FOI request.

And, to be fair, paid for the FOI, giving riotact an opportunity to latch onto the story … I

I do wish they didn’t redact the applicant’s name. There’s a couple of recent FoIs that look suspiciously like businesses trying to snoop on other businesses.

Now I remember why I removed RiotAct from my bookmarks / favourites….. A bunch of over-educated minds commenting on the minds of those not so fortunate. Aplogies to those who fall in the latter category and still bother to comment ….

Indeed, Porkrer, not to mention the Zen of it all.

Demanding Instant noodles almost validates those mad dietary theorists who claim that we are being poisoned by anything but personally grated carrots.

“Criminal scumbag” – of course – there could be no other conceivable explanation for having such irredeemably wicked thoughts.

Other than having empathy and an imagination of course. We can drink martinis in hell together HD.

Nice idea, and maybe we could nick off before it’s time to pay the bill – just to see what it feels like.

The Crimes has finally got the story: http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/lack-of-noodles-damaged-eggs-among-act-prisoners-complaints-20140117-30z2f.html

Odd that they don’t give a link to the original PDF like the RiotACT has usefully done.

I find it odd that they don’t give a link to the original story on RIOTACT, CT probably want to pretend that they thought of it themselves…

“Pretty boy”? Really?

What sort of schoolyard-level homophobic name-calling can we expect next? Fag? Poof? Pansy?

Maybe leave it out.

Irish Pete can explain it to those not paying attention…

It’s just a pun on Petey Boy. I don’t think it requires too much psychoanalysis. I turn the other cheek. And fart in his general direction.

Journos don’t like you checking their sources. It means you can detect their mistakes.

I was talking about this thread to a dear friend of mine who has done some time in AMC. And no, he’s not a criminal scumbag, just an ordinary, intelligent, educated person with a family and a good job whose nice ordinary life fell apart completely because of one horrifically stupid action after a night on the grog.

And guess what, he agrees with the majority of posters here. Says AMC is a wonderful prison with great facilities and opportunities for rehabilitation, but some of the people inside just like to whinge. He shook his head about the prisoner who was asking for painkillers but really wanted a light for his cigarette. Said that happens all the time and it wastes the guards’ time.

He had no comment on the noodles, however.

Yeah, anybody who uses a fringe example as a fact to make their point is a moron.

To which example are you referring, the Milat example or the Bundy example? Because your comment can’t apply to one without also applying to the other.

In response to Nylex_Clock’s use of Milat as an example – no-one was discussing serial killers. There aren’t many in Canberra. There are lots of burglars, car thieves, and robbers (and drink drivers), MOST of them addicted to drugs of one form or another, many of them also with serious alcohol problems.

And in response to your later comment, unfortunately by the time kids go to school a lot of the damage has already been done. And the 30 or so hours they spend in school each week for most of the year (if they even go to school) has to be weighed up against the other 100+ hours per week they are spending elsewhere.

There are plenty of examples of kids from well-off backgrounds going into crime, and there are plenty of examples of kids from deprived backgrounds not going into crime. But the connection is strong. Very strong.

It’s also the case that rich folk do different crime – they don’t steal your car, they steal your superannuation. Whether it’s as common, we don’t know, because this stuff often doesn’t get discovered. In fact, banks and other companies cover up a lot, because they don’t want to undermine public trust in them. (They obviously don’t believe in deterrence and punishment.)

They both actually work, pretty boy. Serial killers do not generally cause the rest of the family to become serial killers, just as the church does generally not cause peeps to become serial killers.

Questionable comment at best. Do the research. Instead of looking at serial killers – look at multiple homicide – it might not fit your hollywood ComicCon definitions but check it out anyway.

Semantics.
