Prisoners Whinge About New Gaol

By Tooks 11 May 2009 52

Unfortunately I can’t find a link, but was flicking through the Canberra Times today and came across an article regarding prisoner complaints (from AMC) regarding such things as small meal portions, poor quality food, lack of clothing provided, and the place being too cold.

I believe families of a couple of prisoners contacted the media, hence the story.  

I guess the nice new human rights compliant prison isn’t quite nice enough for some people.

As usual with a lot of discussions on here, sides are being taken without the benefit of the full facts.

While I personally believe that time in gaol should be in no way easy, in the case of the AMC, arguments from both sides at the moment are purely speculation.

If you’re looking for facts, RiotACT is the wrong place to find them. Pure speculation, half-baked opinions, conspiracy theories, unfounded accusations, nutbag rantings and a few nice photos are the heart and soul of this place. That’s why I keep coming back.

well said, reprobate.

Sorry, I’m in a snappy mood today. And excuse my poor spelling also.

Mr Evil 3:28 pm 12 May 09

None at all – but I thought it’d help pass the time!

There are also probably quite a few homeless people in New York who have never met a homeless person from Canberra – maybe we should set up a homeless persons exchange?

relevence?

There are also probably quite a few homeless people from NY who’d have a lot of sympathy for the homeless people in Canberra complaining about being homeless.

There are probably quite a few homeless people in Canberra at this time of year who’d have a lot of sympathy for those prisoners complaining about the cold and the poor quality food at the AMC…..

Forgot to mention that apparently AMC was given an inspection at the beginning of the month and it was given the thumbs up.

As usual with a lot of discussions on here, sides are being taken without the benefit of the full facts.

As someone has already stated, a place like the AMC should meet some kind of minimum standards. Are the prisoners complaining because those standards aren’t being met? Buggered if I know. And I doubt anyone here really knows, either.

Are the food portions and standards really inadequate? Maybe. Or maybe the prisoners are just pissed because they can’t have the two Big Mac Greaseburgers with extra fries that they’d normally have on the outside, and are being served some rubbish called vegetables.

While I personally believe that time in gaol should be in no way easy, in the case of the AMC, arguments from both sides at the moment are purely speculation.
