Rhys Brown and poor impulse control

By johnboy - 3 September 2010 32

Rhys Brown is awaiting sentencing for taking a machete to Woden Plaza and threatening to kill another man.

He’s trying to convince the court that he needs to be out of prison because custodial life has got him using drugs again.

So it’s a little surprising to read on the ABC that he’s thrown a jug of water at Justice Richard Refshauge in court and had to be restrained by five corrective services officers.

One hopes he will not be gracing the streets of Canberra until he’s gotten a better grip on his temper.

What’s Your opinion?

Saw in the paper today he got 3 1/2 years in. Maybe in that time he can work on his drug habit.

what i don’t get is who pays for these drugs. aren’t they meant to be expensive. who is giving them away to prisoners?

Prisoners have access to money through bank accounts.

Are there ATMs in prison? Is that a human right requirement?

Wonder what he got for throwing the jug of water at the justice?

It was ‘Justice’ Refshauge, so hopefully a round of applause.

Ive heard that our society is corrupt.

I’ve heard the jail is corrupt already!

….but an equally pertinent question is, “Why is a prisoner accused of committing a violent offense allowed to sit at the bloody bar table???” (The fact he was escorted by FIVE screws is an pretty good indication that he could be volatile chap.) I recall a female prosecutor was hit over the head with a lectern by another accused last year. Is there no corporate memory operating? It is apparent farnarkler, that someone in the A.G.’s dept (or the judiciary) are not doing their job properly either.

It is apparent then that someone somewhere within ACT corrective services is not doing their job properly.

Farnarkler said ” what is the point? ”

what he said (above). There’s too many way’s and means and bodgy people in power.

You shouldn’t forget we have some very resourceful people imprisoned. Not just the boys. They are naturally/freakishly talented at this stuff. I really don’t think you can stop it. You might be able to reduce it. But you cant stop it. Just the same way as you will never be able to stop illicit drugs in the community. Denial goes a lot further than government.

You mean Criminals don’t follow the laws? lol imagine that.
