Pity it was only his leg.

Well the prison hardman only suffered a minor stab wound, requiring a few stitches, from a ‘shiv’ and true to form is not co-operating with investigators. Shame they only targeted his leg.

Looks like Matt Massey got stabbed in the leg interesting to see the next few days…

I wish I could tell you that Andy fought the good fight, and the Sisters let him be. I wish I could tell you that – but prison is no fairy-tale world. He never said who did it, but we all knew. ….

Things went on like that for awhile – prison life consists of routine, and then more routine. Every so often, Andy would show up with fresh bruises. The Sisters kept at him – sometimes he was able to fight ’em off, sometimes not. And that’s how it went for Andy – that was his routine.

I do believe those first two years were the worst for him, and I also believe that if things had gone on that way, this place would have got the best of him…….

Who is Andy? Who are the “Sisters”? What is this about and what has it got to do with the subject?

Seriously???

Oh come on, how do you know that the said detainees didn’t possess an assaulting an another detainee?

You know, it actually took me quite a while to figure out how to parse that sentence, but then I larfed. 🙂

Surely you jest? A quote from the “Shawshank Redemption” is in the fine RiotACT tradition of popular culture references, and I for one say “Well Done PBO”

You serious?? When I read it all I heard was Morgan Freeman’s voice…

Then pictured wading through 300 yards of filth that I can’t even begin to imagine.

Surely they mean “injury’s”?

Is it an alleged incident? Or is it an incident involving two detainees allegedly assaulting?

indeed. I’ve just about given up on the overuse of “alleged”. It is often used in circumstances that are offensive to the victim, as it implies they are not telling the truth. It is quite possible to write a sentence that makes the “alleged” apply to the suspect, and not the victim.

And if you’ve ever been assaulted and reported it to the police, they ask you “Did you consent to being assaulted?”. They think they have to do it because they only have a basic and inflexible understanding of law, but hey, it was you that called them, so I think they could probably dispense it with unless you’re all dressed in PVC and tied to a bed when they get there.

I once had a cop turn around to go home because I hadn’t said “stop assaulting me” to the perp – fortunately another officer with a brain turned up right then, and fat old lazy stupid cop was able to go home while young keen fit bright cop got on with the job.

You really know jack s*** about the law, don’t you? Don’t answer – it was a rhetorical question. You bang on like you’re some kind of authority on the criminal justice system, while constantly demonstrating a complete lack of understanding of the most basic topics. You can’t even grasp the basic concept of negating defences of assault. Stop talking s***; the old baffle them with bull*** tactic doesn’t work on everyone.
