Snorkel rides again!

By johnboy - 15 September 2010 2

The ABC brings more word of Canberra’s most notorious criminal, Matthew “Snorkel”* Massey who has been found guilty of assaulting a guard at the Belconnen Remand Centre.

A 34-year-old Canberra man has been found guilty of assaulting corrective service officers uring a brawl at the Belconnen Remand Centre (BRC) last year.

Matthew Massey from Ngunnawal was accused of pushing a female corrective services officer and punching two male officers after an altercation in the BRC’s exercise yard in January last year.

* So named for his daring attempt to evade the law using a reed as a snorkel

UPDATE: The Magistrate’s Court has published its reasons. The descriptions of how much leeway prisoners have is worth a read.

What’s Your opinion?

What a Mully.

I love the way the various inmates recall the conversations which occurred. So much “please miss, may I have the bag back”. Like something out of Oliver Twist.
