Cellphones in prisons

January 14th, 2005 at 11:41 am by David Farrar

No wonder the Government can not keep the prisons drug free, when they can’t even detect prisoners having cellphones.

The prisoner in this story had not one but two cellphones!!

And I know it is probably against the Human Rights Act, but please stop hiring woman prison officers for men’s prisons. Sooner or later they all seem to end up bonking one or more prisoners.

    “They ‘all’ seen to end up bonking….” Give me strength David.. I am amazed at the anti-women comments that appear in your BLOG including this one. I assume you are intelligent and you made this comment to get a reaction, though frankly the reaction you will get is so predictable (including mine) I doubt that you really are that bright given the sweeping generalisation you made about women.

    Good God Tim, get a sense of humour. It is called taking the piss.

    Incidentially I think having male prison officers in women’s prisons is just a slikely to have the same problems.

    Sure male officers may well target women prisoners, and do not overlook the gay angle as well, I bet that has happened. Incidently this incident as well as drunk prisoners all occured at Hawkes-Bay prison and I think there have been other problems as well. I feel an inquiry coming on.

    When you consider the type of men and women in our prisons (you have to be bad several times to get to one, or extremely evil to go there first time) I’m pretty sure I would not want to screw any of them. (I know, lame pun)

    We need more clued up prison staff – banning opposite gender guards from prisons is kneejerk.

    The percentage of the population that is gay, (4%, not 10%), the chances that a gay person is a prison guard ought to be about the same. How many prison guards are there in NZ? If we assume 8871, that means that there are 355 gays. How many occurances of prisoner-guard sex have there been in the last year? Perhaps half a dozen? Maybe more? For prudence I will assume 15. So 15 out of 8516 (8871 minus 355 gays) equates to 0.176%.

    Now Tim, you said you believed that “gay prisoner”-“gay guard” intercourse (there is a song in there I reckon) has happened at least once. So that means 1 out of 355, or 0.282% probability. So, Tim, you reckon that the probability of a gay guard having sex with a prisoner is 60 PERCENT higher than the probability of a straight guard doing the same??!! Jeez, talk about homophobic hysteria.

    Note: for this analysis I chose to ignore the possibility of threesomes, foursomes and fivesomes. Blowies count as half, and watching doesnt count.

    Ah, I’m just kidding.

    Women guards in men’s prisons bring a bit of femininity and motherliness to young prisoners. They help to keep things calm. A violent prisoner is less likely to attack a female guard than a male.

    I suggest reading Celia Lashley’s book. She became the superintendent of Christchurch’s womens prison but earlier on worked at a mens prison. She tells of the prisoners walking naked out of the showers in front of her daring her to look down while she forced herself to stare at their faces.

    I think your 4% gay is far too low. The % having gay sex at least once, is much higher. Though many do not acknowledge it. Sexual orientation is a continuum. It does not fall into a 4% box. I was speculating about gay sex between guards and prisoners but it must happen given the environment.

    Yeah, I am just playing around, Kyoto will no doubt help fix the problem.

    I agree that having females officers in male prisons and males in female prisons was political correctness gone crazy and the consequences obvious right fronm the start. Now we have a crazy left wing judge virtually outlawing any form of control and discipline. The whole Justice system is completely out of kilter.Its only goal seeming to be to maximise the financial returns to lawyers

    What’s wrong with staring at naked prisoners’ bits fresh from the shower? Just point and laugh. They may like a bit of extra humiliation in their lives.

    Hans, pointing and laughing at prisoners genitals is “tantamount to torture” and punishable by 10 years in a military prison.
