New prison officers ready to go

By Thumper - 3 July 2008 40

ABC online is reporting that Canberra’s new prison will have its full contingent of staff by the time the facility starts accepting inmates later this year, according to ACT Attorney-General Simon Corbell

The latest batch of correctional officers to work at the centre graduated at a ceremony at Old Parliament House yesterday.

The officers have been recruited from the ACT, New South Wales and Victoria, and include 30 men and nine women.

It does appear that the facility is thus far running smoothly in its construction and planning.

What’s Your opinion?

Give this man a nobel for his work on race relations!

But seriously, tell me, what did you mean by that, and the other comment you made about Sudanese ghettos or whatever in the story about Canberra’s growth.

I know mate, you took the bait. I’m sorry.

BTW I’m not a racist either. I ate Chinese for dinner on Tuesday night.

Good, because you are.

I’m not…A closer inspection would tell that the comments were in jest…

V8-Prius 4:43 pm 03 Jul 08

I never said I wasn’t racist.

I think he/she meant it was going to be a ruined, rundown shitehole within two years?

So, what was that about the Sudanese hilton, then?

Mr Evil 4:29 pm 03 Jul 08

As long as it doesn’t become the New Zealand Hilton, then I’m happy.

Read your own posts, douchebag.

Also, white people smell. I have it on good authority.

You are alienating yourself at a frightening rate of knots deadmandrinking. First you slander blacks, then whites. By my calculations only Asians and possibly American Indians are safe while you’re around.

Yes, because there is a HUGE CRIME WAVE ENTIRELY PERPETRATED BY SUDANESE here in Canberra! Haven’t you heard?????

(Warning, some Sudanese may appear to be unshaven whiteys with trendy mullets).

Racist.

The Maconchie centre will be the Sudanese Hilton within 2 years. You heard it here first!

“It does appear that the facility is thus far running smoothly in its construction and planning.”
Hmmmmm…..I am reminded of the Hospital without patients episode in ‘Yes Minister’.

I’m anxious to see what happens when real live flesh and blood crooks come up against a system built on Simon Corbell’s ‘Human Rights’ mantra.

Smart money is on the crims.

Let the beatings commence!!!

Seriously though, that place will be more deserted than the convention centre when Weird Al Yankovic last played there. When was the last time an ACT magistrate sentenced anyone to the big house?! Even if you murder someone you’re a fair chance of the magistrate laughing it off and giving you a slap on the wrist.
