SUNDAY BRUNCH:

This in the Herald on Sunday today,

JAIL BLOG CURBED
Stephen Cook

FOR NEARLY six weeks, inmate Tim Selwyn has waxed lyrical about daily life in prison. The current affairs newsblog www.tumeke.blogspot.com has featured his musings from behind bars about prison yard violence, his attitude towards the judiciary – and even claims that “bent cops” have been stealing cannabis from prisoners.

Now, after initially sanctioning the prison blog, Corrections has decided it is time to rein Selwyn in. Last week the department wrote to Selwyn – in jail on sedition and fraud charges – advising him that his blog could pose a threat to prison security and that in future all outgoing letters would be read by prison staff.

Any letter that posed a threat to prison security would be withheld by the prison.

Website owner Martyn ‘Bomber’ Bradbury was disappointed with the decision.

“I think it is a bit ridiculous. They obviously are scared of Tim showing the country what life is really like in there,” he said.

Dunno, maybe you forfeit such rights when you receive a criminal convictiction...

Are they really within their rights to do this? Maybe someone should do something. Oh, wait, New Zealanders don't give a shit about anything enough to bother taking actual action!

No, we do give a shit. We just don't like Selwyn, who is a dick and a fraudster.

anon 21/8/06 8:53 AM its dicks like you that most dont give a shit about, maybe you have your tongue buried Helen Clarke ass so deep that the suction prevents you from pulling it out, no no wait, then maybe you just like the taste of her shit.

How the fuck can a letter be a breach of prison security, they couldn't secure a warm cup of piss.
Someone tell Tim to ask another inmate to post his letters, what they going to do then read everyones mail, yeah right

I haven't read Tim's letters in detail. I don't imagine life in prison is very nice, but I don't think it's supposed to be.

In the ideal world, people wo commit crimes get rehabilitated or have what ever injustice caused their outburst dealt with. But this is not the ideal world and will never be.
In this world, if you throw an axe through anyone's window, you don't deserve to roam the streets. There's no need for violence and intimidation like that. If Tim have greivances, then they should be addressed in peaceful non-violent ways.

Does he have the right to send letters to Bomber and have them published on the Internet?
Yeh, sure he does. They both have a right to do this. But in this world, you do lose some rights when you go to jail.

Doesn't this raise the issue of our retributive justice system, not so much civil rights?

Gee not sure if I can match the eloquence displayed here.

About time this will at least stop whining Timmy, and his charming supporters from embarrassing themselves further, for now anyway.

As for Timmy knowing what its really like in there - give me a break, his delusions are getting worse.

In the meantime how about a victims blog – their pain and punishment never ends. There is no compensation for their losses whether it’s the theft of a wallet or their death, there is no support for their pain (OK the dead ones pain is over). We are all victims of a criminal society one way or another perhaps we need to look at our priorities.

There is support here for smacking children being made a crime (I have to say on balance I am also a supporter) if ‘revenge’ and ‘punishment’ as supposedly so bad what would be the outcome of a smacking trial with a guilty verdict, an hour talking things over with a (christian volunteer) stupid woman in a cardigan perhaps, think I would rather go to jail.

I dont think tim and Bomber are suggesting crimes should go unpunished - I think the real issue here is that while Simon Power is cruising up and down the country convincing the that prisons are like Her Majesty's Hotels, Tim is offering an alternative perspective to the goings on in there. Who is telling the truth? The crim or the polititian? Anyones guess really - I'm keen to hear both sides of the story thanks.

why doesnt he use a cell phone to phone his blog to you.. like so many inmates have cellphones

 
At 21/8/06 6:53 pm, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Ever wonder why we have such a problem with crime in this country?? simple reason is that to be imprisoned you have to amass a huge number of convictions before the justice system will imprison you. They say our prisons are too full so we must be doing something wrong...fact of the matter is we need more prisons and need to be less lenient in the first place so hardened crims do not eventuate in such numbers.Sure a first or second time offender (depending on the seriousness of the offence)can be dealt with by way of community work, but serious offences eg sex, violence, need to be taken seriously and a clear message sent.

have any of yous ever been in jail wat r u to go on about how hard it is in their its a peice of piss its a fucking holiday park

Anon 21/8/06 1:58 PM No one has ever said that the victum should be forgotten, I am sure that you
realize this in that peanut brain of yours. We all feel for the victums in any case, like Bomber had said in another post that maybe there should be more for the victum support, etc etc

But in Tim Selwyns case, the victum was a window and your good old Aunty Helen sad to say but the charge of sedition was bull shit, should I be concerned for her because Tim Selwyn stood up for me and my rights over the seabed & foreshore, like Hell I would. To tell you the truth I dont even know the man I have ever met him, but the Mana for what he had done. I will be there to suport him always.

perhaps anonymous above should have become literate whilst inside...especially if it's the holiday he says it is

Hi ive moved his from the earlier post to keep up with the flow

Hi this is a post i made on another blog so i hope its ok to post it here. i had the pleasure years ago and have friends still involved and rest assured there is no change this is a corrupt,dishonest and self perpetuating system. and yea i broke the law weather or not i did wrong is debatable but 'anonymous' rest assured you pay for it you support it and when some kid progresses from smoking pot to raping your kid because of the treatment your wonderful servants dished out the joke will be on you.and it will be me giggling.i will continue with an example a young guy held up the PO got 2 years after being arrested repainting the getaway car in his drive. 1st day in a guy steps up " suck my cock" "no" whack "suck my cock" "no" wwwhhhaaaaaackkkk "suck my cock" mmmm quite tasty. he did his year and out. 3 weeks later arrested raping and cutting up a woman in supermarket car park. yea back to jail but that woman has yet to go shopping i imagine. yes its unfortunate but you sane ones reap your rewards.

prison numbers will continue to grow under the present system. as long as they are run by ex school boy bullies overseeing educated and qualified social workers and psycologists who understand rehabilitation. screws are interested in continuing there bludging existance and work to ensure their clients return. lf anyone is interested their are countless examples of the systems abuse of funds and dedication to maintaining growth. as a civilised person it is so unpleasant that i have no wish to return.
cheers

exactly-you went inside and now don't ever want to go back so you abide by the law and society has one less fucker to worry about. more people realise this the better we are as a society.

Anon 21/8/06 11:14 PM the society you live in, is a fucked up one and the only thing you will get from me in your society is my middle finger stretched high into the air.

so he abides by the law, Helen clarkes law ?... certainly not Crown law.

Hey AB, hadn't heard from you since you were telling us how Israel would kick Hizbollah, how did that all work out for you? We are all surprised that you are back

msth8d..frankly i don't care about what happened to aunty helens office or to her. i was talking about real offences eg violence/sex types/big fraud. do you think anyone else would have gone to prison for smashing a window? ofcourse not, but what helen wants goes...

WTF, all letter's are read by the screws before they leave prison.

As for the bent cop saga - that reminds me of a mate who was standing in the court dock on charges of cultivating cannabis. When the police read out the statement that he was growing 7 pounds, my mate informed the judge that the number of pounds he was growing was more like 14.

Okay the way I see it is.... Yeah this guy fucked up big time, but if the prison had nothing to worry about then why do they wanna monitor the letters?...... I see this guy writing his letters as a coping mechanisim and if it helps why not!!!!!!! No I aint been to jail before so no I dont know what its like...... and I aint so far up my own arse to think that if you go to jail your a fucken wanker and you should just rot in hell!!!! and as far as im concerned FUCK HELEN CLARK ugly bitch..... and fuck the pigs that think that they are higher than anyone becuase they can play the law!!!!

Well Boomer - If I remember rightly it was you and your shortlived mate Brewer crying about how the IDF were kicking a bit of Lebannese arse. I made no claims of the Hez getting caned just that Israel were right in what they were doing. Didn't hear of Hez refusing a ceasefire did you??

So tell me Boomer - how many times has this site received 6000 hits in one day ?
Tell the truth,its just us big boys and girls here now, theres no one you need to impress.

Also I haven't seen a single word on your(oops - Tims)site re - captured fox journos - you know your good mates in Hamas sat in their offices while DIRECTLY across the road 2 carloads of armed men kidnapped 2 journos out of their truck. Amazing what those peace loving Hamas dudes let happen outside their own headquarters isn't it?

He He - Good to see you've moved to the imperial 'WE' Boomer. Moving further into the realm of tossers.

Seems I'm not the only Anti Boomer out there. Am I surprised??

Hell No

Sigh - kids please play nicely in the sandpit - we try and allow a place where ideas can be debated. AB - so nice to have you back, even though you conveniently gloss over your last debate loss with ‘you and brewer said the IDF were hurting the Lebanese’ silliness. Come on AB, you were horribly wrong over the Lebanon war, and I think that’s why you debate pointless issues rather than the argument at hand. Simply disliking me and using that as the point for writing here is a little childish mate. As for this snide little ‘how many times have you received 6000 hits in a day’ – I think you are referring to the TV3 news report, they asked what’s the highest hits this site has ever had and I said 5704 hits in one day, they said on TV3 up to 6000 hits. I didn’t say we get that every day, that was the highest we ever got, your attempt to link that into meaning more suggests how pointless your argument actually is. I have written about the Fox news reporters, I stated that it seems who Wigg worked for was the point of the kidnapping, I mean even when you do try to launch a point, you’re wrong, I have written about Wiig, and you state I haven’t!

The Imperial WE says you need to try a little harder AB, all that bitterness makes your posts a bit sad.

Good to see you're learning boomer - still a decade away at least but....

Debate ??? Is that what you call it?

You know Boomer I'm a little surprised that you even use a computer. I mean a large proportion of the software and hardware that makes your little fantasy world go round comes from your arch enemy Amerika.
I would have thought a boy with your convictions would never bend his morals and support the corporate
enemy. Just goes to show doesn't it?

Been shining up your TV award nomination lately Boomer? They do tarnish so quickly don't they? My mother uses vinegar on my Hockey trophies - might work for nominations too.

Anyway poor old Tim aye? Stuck in prison for crimes he did commit. I mean really....makes you want to axe someones windows doesn't it?

Anon - Boring -maybe, but right too.

Are you boomer? or one of his little helpers?

I know boomer won't reply to my comment above as he has no answer to it.

AMERIKA makes his shit and he still uses it even though he professes to think them Satan.

NEXT.

Its fuckwits like you that will put race relations back into the 19th century.
I'm sure everyone owes you bigtime and if all those damm colonists would just fuck off back to where they came from you could go back to the peaceful lovely well off paradise that exsisted before the white came.

AB is it fucking lonely where live? and that space that exist between the ears has NASA come up with a name for it yet.

So now all of a sudden we are friends, when the fuck did this happen?

So you've seen my blog good for you, nice to know that theres some activity happening in there, you should tell your doctor about it, just in case your on the wrong medication.

I would comment on your piss ass attempt to make something out of nothing. But whats the point.
Though I am sure that if I pointed a shotgun at you and took your stuff, you'd be wanting it back too.

But your not worth the time nor the effort, but I will say, when reading your comment, you do reminded me of a universal truth AB,
"That a big Mouth and a small mind are usually found together"

I hate the Labour Party, So called workers representatives, they all have university degrees and are about as working class as the dutch royal family.

bit of shame about timbo, but what do you expect with a capitalist state that masquerades as being socialist eh?

the good KNIGHT
