Prison bashing

By johnboy - 28 January 2013 50

ACT Policing is investigating a serious assault at the Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC) on Sunday morning (27 January).

Police were called in when a 27-year-old male inmate punched another male inmate in the face, causing serious injuries.

The injured inmate was conveyed to The Canberra Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery. ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations (CI) team is conducting further investigations into the incident.

Not that I’m saying I feel particularly bad for Mr. King. I just wish we could put all the kiddy-fiddlers and racists together in one giant sack and dump them out at sea.

You’re glad he was punched because he was Indian? This is me wishing incurable bowel cancer on you, with all my heart.

I assume you’re talking about compensation?

Regardless of the offences for which he is incarcerated, he’s entitled to safety. And for the neanderthals who believe that prison is the place where those who deserve it get assaulted, how does this help anyone’s rehabilitation? How does this make them better people when they return to our community?

And what about the perpetrators of prison violence? If you condone (or applaud) the assault of a person because of their offending, then surely you also turn a blind eye to those who are their assailants. How does perpetrating violence on “those who deserve it” whilst in prison affect a person’s likelihood of rehabilitation if that person has a history of violent offences? Will bashing an offender make the basher a better person when they return to the community?

And what about the costs to the community? Not only is it already very expensive to incarcerate an offender, but the community now has to stump up the costs of medical treatment (the bloke might lose an eye) and potentially also the costs of compensation.

Still think a prison bashing is a great idea for those who “deserve it”?

A scumbag to be sure but everything he gets will likely amount to a payout if he was indeed there with the other prisoners when he wasn’t supposed to be.

Remember this is the ACT with our wonderful human rights compliant prison. If a con in Victoria can get a six figure payout after falling out of a bunk bed in his cell I would imagine this particular gentleman will soon be rolling in it.

Sounds like a stand over to get the guys methadone, I’ve heard of that before in the prison.

… Yes because I’m sure that prisoners are free to give their methadone to whoever they wish.
