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.

Comic, if you have to ask Mike Crowther’s source, you ain’t been posting here long! (FYI Mike has a long employment history in the corrections field and knows his stuff).

This whole issue of security and keeping protected prisoners separate has arisen before

Corrections field in NSW or other proper prisons……not the AMC

King’s judgment from the Supreme Court website – http://www.courts.act.gov.au/supreme/judgment/view/4894/title/r-v-king.

Made me sick.

That is good to know. Plus, he looks too Indian to me. My biggest pet-hates. 🙂

Just for future reference, that Indian ‘pet-hate’ of yours is more commonly referred to as ‘racism’.

You and others alike- please drop this political correctness bs.:-)
It is long dead in real world. Also, learn a definition of racism/racist before you accuse someone.
You want to have a rant about racism? This is a link for you- trolls feeding on other idiots, look at other threads within Australia too-entertaining to read.LOL

You’re glad he was punched because he was Indian?

This is me wishing incurable bowel cancer on you, with all my heart.

😀 DrKoresh, one thing you weren’t taught is to never wish bad to people.
So in this case, from your own heart, it will come back to you, tenfold.That’s for sure.
And where did you read that I was glad he was punched because of him looking Indian??

IrishPete said :

I think the person saying he looks Indian was being sarcastic.
Mr King was sentenced not very long ago, but had spent years on remand, so someone’s calculation of his parole eligibility is way off the mark.
Who’s to say the guy that assaulted him wasn’t also in Protection? Lots of people (the media included) have jumped to conclusions.

This wouldnt be an issue if all rock spiders, sex offenders and violent criminals were punished by death!!!

So that would mean executing both of them? What about the people posting in this thread who condone this serious assault? That executioner is going to be busy.

It was a pedophile who was assulted .. If you ask me he deserves everything he gets!

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”?

If the other prisoner had finished the job we’d have no issue with compensation and no worries about this scumbag getting out.

Nasty stuff. It’s pretty hard to expect crims to change if we’re going to condone this kind of behaviour.

Actually he is aboriginal.

He was also a professional boxer, and a pretty good one apparently – winning 28 of 32 fights. I knew him when he coached Ginninderra Cricket Club about 12-15 years ago. Whilst he’s getting on a bit in years, he’s not a person that I’d want to pick on if he’s still anything like he was then.

Seems he’s nothing like he was then given he got his face rearranged. The other guy wasn’t carted off the TCH with him.

And yes I condone bashings of rock spiders in prisons, to the person who raised the “counter-arguments”.

God knows there is rarely justice elsewhere.

So punching in the ring in more ways than one?

Mike Crowther said :

A few things stink about this incident… If the bloke is a rockspider, he should not have been at the clinic at the same time as mainstream inmates (presence of officers or not). The question is, did the administration give the OK to do so to save time (and therefore money) by only having one medical/methadone parade? Did individual officers decide to take a shortcut rather than conduct separate escorts?

Was the assault ‘arranged’ by the victim to ensure an early parole and some setting up again money by way of victims compo?

(I have no answers, I just hope the right questions get asked.) Looks to me like Corrections ACT is more than capable of running a safe and well controlled syringe exchange what???
O, and Comic and gamer_nerd, I can assure you that Methadone does get shared quite frequently… sometimes by way of a bit of foam or apple under the tongue when undergoing ‘supervised’ dosing, or by the threat of an utter flogging if the recipient doesn’t vomit it back up. (It’s then strained, watered down and re-swallowed by the stand-over man/woman or on-sold for tobacco/head jobs/ or favors involving violence.

Source?

Why is this even news? A shitbag punches another shitbag in prison – who cares?

I thought the rock spiders were kept away from the mainstream prisoners? This will cost the ACT government a fortune when Jack Pappas, our very own ‘celebrity’ lawyer gets hold of it.
