Kurariki back to jail - what a surprise
Kurariki heads back to prison
One of the country's youngest killers is back in jail, this time for the indecent assault of two female journalists. Bailey Junior Kurariki, 21, was sentenced this week to 11 months in prison with strict release conditions following the attack on the journalists, whose names are suppressed.
Don't you love throwing kids into detention centers for being mere look outs in a bungled robbery and then watching them explode when dumped back into society with zero rehabilitation? Here he is, our little Bailey exploding because we lock people up in NZ, we don't bother rehabilitating them because that would cost money, far better we dehumanize them and they come out and commit more crime.
If we are going to lock them up, why the hell not rehabilitate them as well? We have allowed Simon Power to convince NZ that prison is an adult Disneyland with under floor heating, flat screen televisions and landscaping that competes with the grand gardens of Europe, so we scream to make it harder and nastier and then we get the result like Bailey and don't seem to like it.
Hilarious, our ability to knee jerk in this country never ceases to amaze me.
