No one is to blame (again)


Right – so amazing NO ONE IS TO BLAME for an intellectually handicapped man getting the bash in the back of a prison van, un-fucking-believable. I love how these pricks always claim that ‘procedures were followed’ – really? If the conclusion to these ‘procedures’ is that a mentally handicapped prisoner gets the bash, then your fucking procedures are bullshit then aren’t they Mr Corrupt, racist and violent Corrections Department bossman. Here is the real poison though, INSTEAD OF BUYING PRISON VANS THAT SEPARATE PRISONERS SEPERATLY – which is what is needed, the corrupt, violent and racist Corrections Department wants to chain the prisoners in the vans - they want the full body restraints, the humiliating, soul destroying and animalistic full body restraints that only go towards creating the environment of dehumaisation that is the major problem of life behind bars, congrats Labour - you are actually going to make the process worse!

Guards cleared in inmate assault
Corrections and Chubb security personnel have been cleared of any wrongdoing over last week's assault on an inmate. The 34-year-old inmate was attacked last Thursday by four other prisoners while Chubb Security was ferrying 13 prisoners from Auckland's remand prison to the Waitakere District Court. The man and the four prisoners were being transported in the same compartment despite a request from the man to be segregated for his own protection. A report on the incident has been signed off by Corrections Minister Damien O'Connor. A spokesman for the minister says an investigation into the Auckland incident has found that proper procedure was followed. He says the inmate was segregated along with other segregated prisoners, and there was nothing unusual about the way he was being transported. The spokesman says the investigation has also found the assaulted inmate didn't suffer a broken jaw as reported. He says Minister O'Connor is now considering introducing waist restraints in prison vans.

we moan about the US and its gun laws, and anything else we can fine to moan about, yet we are not to far off from becoming a carbon copy of what we hate the most.

How Ironic...

last thing left is to introduce gun shops in South Auckland right next to liquor stores... pass the law call it "The population Control Act 2007"

If, by some circumstance, you find yourself, in a prison van, you keep your mouth shut.These vehicles are not the local school bus,the people on them, are usually not very nice.If your a IHC kid fucker,or a ADHD juvenile with a smart mouth,then your probably on the back foot to start with,and you probably deserve what you get.In this situation, you either learn quick or fall over.The latest guy should have got medical treatment earlier than he did.Thats just Chubb being arseholes, their's probably some internal penalty for this sort of thing, but, don't expect to hear about it.As for the earlier case, his parents wanted him to experience"tough love", pity they were'nt streetwise enough to forearm him before they biffed him into the system.Reconfiguring the vans is not the answer, attention to detail on the part of the transit staff is.

Ponty I'm not exactly sure what you mean by attention to detail, and think Bomber's suggestion is the far more rational answer.

ADHD juvenile with a smart mouth,then your probably on the back foot to start with,and you probably deserve what you get

So, people on the backfoot deserve what they get huh? Your depth of understanding is too shallow to comprehend. People with ADHD in their adult life need help and medication - the last thing they need is to be written off by society by people like you, that refuse to try and understand them.

pamziewamzie, attention to detail means that the Chubb staff should have checked the paperwork before loading the van. Kidfuckers are objects of hate to other prisoners, they are kept segregated from the prison populace, in general.They can't trust each other,let alone other prisoners.Screws spend their working day in this sort of environment,they know who should be kept seperate.Private transit staff, have their own responsibilities,including loading their vans in a safe manner.I.E.checking their paperwork and loading accordingly, would be commonsense to the average person,but then the average person probably wouldn't have this job on.ADHD juveniles, dumped into the system are a pain in the arse. They shouldnt be there.Particularily, when their placed there by their own parents,as some attempt at an el cheapo form of 'tough love'.It's nice that you have sympathy for them,but,to the cold hard society that populates our prisons, they are left to either sink or swim. And their on the back foot the the whole time.

You speak the truth.

"Chuck em all in jail", as a topic I know has been revisited time and time again, but the average Mr and Mrs Kiwi has no concept of prison.

Opportunistic politicians from both sides of the spectrum have exploited the public fear of crime, and this has generated a 'lock-em-up-and-throw-away-the-key" attitude amongst Kiwis, many of whom really should know better.

I suspect Liam's parents will blame themselves for a long time. ShXt, they probably RELIED on the mainstream media to inform them of what prison is like...

So who can blame them really. They wouldn't have had a clue...
