I'll never be your Beast of Blenheim
How many times can Breakfast TVNZ say 'Beast of Blenheim' before the commercial break? I think if they thought they could get away with it they would call him the 'Beast monster vampire of Blenheim'.
I wonder which media outlet will be the first to launch 'Beast Watch' with 24/7 streaming of Stewart Murray Wilson's home? The frenzied frightened mob fed by a ratings focused media always creates informed debate.
As I pointed out earlier this week - The problem for Corrections is this, they have to grant Stewart Murray Wilson parole now while they can still stipulate controls over him, leave it another 3 years and there isn't anything they can demand once he has served his full sentence.
I think part of the problem is that our imprisonment system demands the prisoner admit their guilt before they receive any rehabilitation, many sex abusers block their actions out and can't admit their responsibility which leads to the situation here where a dangerous individual hasn't had any rehab whatsoever, has nearly served out his full sentence and we all freak about releasing someone as damaged as this back into the community without critiquing the system that has led to this.
It's nice to see the mainstream media discussing issues like adults and have replaced crime porn with fear porn as their 6pm lead.
