Everyone’s favourite criminal – Matthew Massey – Back in Custody.

By bigfeet - 16 April 2009 55

ABC is reporting that all around great guy Matthew Massey is back in custody after being arrested twice on the one day. 

Once for possession of capsicum spray and a knife.  Then it appears after being bailed, later that day he decided to kidnap someone.   But it’s ok, because [it is alleged] he was using GHB and ice at the time.  So it’s not his fault.

What’s Your opinion?

I stand by what I said. Sure they met in prison, but the networks, associations and behaviours were developed outside.

Chopper was and is a nothing. The criminal milieu view him for what he is. A liar and a druggie

You forget to mention ‘braggard’ and ‘self promoting’, VG. All in all Chopper’s a very unsavory character. I think his biggest claim to fame was getting a self-defence ruling for his killing of an unarmed man (Sammy the turk) at point blank range. Other than that his body-count is spurious. That said, I still wouldn’t want to be on his bad side.

Ah no they weren’t. They were built outside of prison. And before you tell me I’m wrong, my source is absolutely impeccable (i.e knowing one of the guys who investigated them)

I think it might actually depend on which part of the Melbourne gangland we’re talking about. I’m pretty sure that for a lot of the painter and docker types, as well as the Choppers and the Williams etc., a good deal of connections were made in prison.

I could be wrong, but I did hear that a lot of their particular codes and honor systems evolved from ones that were developed in prison.

#49 – the only problem with that is in our wonderful utopian prison, and with our bleeding heart judiciary, and the standard lack of competence in managing anything, he’ll be on the outside of the cell when they throw away the keys.

My god, the sooner they throw away the key of this guys cell the better.

Yep. Trust our judiciary to keep us safe from the violent rednecks, alright.

DMD how many crim’s have meet or heard of who have served time and been released are coping well on the outside??

Take the subject of this post how many times has Mr Massey and/or friends been repeat offenders??

CAnberra’s a larger city right.

aa – in regards to ‘For a lot of criminals, being in prison is better than being in at home.’, that may be the case in some of our poorer communities out in the desert, but by in large, I seriously doubt that’s the case in most of our larger cities.

Prisons are criminal breeding grounds. The Melbourne Gangland that started wiping each other out in broad daylight was basically built in prison.

Oh and they can smoke inside, setting of the smoke alarms, and not have any repercussions. Firemen must be getting pissed of having been called out 30 times!!!

Of course it would be against their human rights if their cigarettes were taken away. In some of the inmates cases you have to be human first.

For a lot of criminals, being in prison is better than being in at home. They have a roof over their head, they get 3 meals a day, they get heating in winter, they get to do courses and study, etc etc. While the rest of us have to work 45 – 50 hours a week. People should fear going to gaol or prison.

Don’t forget the free gym and in some cases free pay T.V

For some criminals life is easier locked up then on the outside, outside some don’t know how to take care of them selfs, they have no one telling them what and when they can do things so they become repeat offenders, I’ve heard of some homeless committing small crimes just for the winter as living in a warm jail with food for 6 months is better stuggling on the street.

When prisons become more like prisons again rather than holiday camps we may see less criminals in our system.

Also, I know prison is supposed to “rehabilitate”, but how many people that go to prison end up being repeat offenders? Does anyone know a rough figure? Im curious, cause if it’s anything above 50% turn out to be repeat offenders, the system isn’t working.

I also heard (not sure if its true or not) but in Canberra there hasn’t been anyone found guilty of murder in the past 10 years. If this is true, is it cause the courts are easy or because the police are over charging offenders? What I mean by over charging is imagine 2 people get in a fight, 1 person kills the other person. The police here charge the person with murder. So they go to court and the judge find them not guilty cause they could prove intent. Now if they charged them with manslaughter or something like that, the chances of finding them guilty would increase. But, I guess everyone wants to make a name for themselves by saying “we’re working on a murder case”

Have a look at the sentences passed on some of our finest citizens: http://www.courts.act.gov.au/supreme/search/sentences.asp?textonly=no

One person with three counts of burglary, one offence of manufacturing heroin and five other offences got a total of 18 months jail, suspended.

Another did a burglary, committed arson, three counts of theft and stole a car and got 27 months, most suspended and periodic detention.

The sentences are almost comedy. A scumbag who did an aggravated robbery gets an instant suspended sentence. All the guilty have to do is say they had a bad childhood and they get away with lenient punishments. Pathetic.
