The coroner’s hearing into Graeme Burton’s murder of Karl Kuchenbecker has made it very clear how flawed the parole system is.

Burton was the last person in the world who should have been paroled.  He terrorised prisoners and guards, and was commonly regarded as a psychopath.  So why was he released?

Because his psychopathy rating was downgraded from “very high” to “high”.  So fine to let them out when they are only a high level psychopath as oppossed to very high.

How’s this for a better system?  Only let them out early if their psychopathy score is low or preferably very low.

    and they pay wimps to control dangerous, vicious murderers, rapists and gang members ??

    You tell me then Hinemanu, I only worked for Corrections for 5 or so years, what would I know?

    The Maori and Polynesian guards I have seen are nowhere near your cretinous description.

    None of the prison officers I have seen are anywhere near yours.

    Must I be more colourful in my critique of you ??????

    WTF? Am I not allowed to offer my own opinion formed through first hand experience? Even the D Block guards I know would be dwarfed by anyone over 6 and a half feet.

    You be as colourful as you like H, but don’t assume you “must”.

    I love how people who’ve never been inside a prison, even as a visitor, flap their gums about this stuff.

    Same Rex, I presume you mean Hinemanu?

    I think this scum should rot in hell and to bring back the death penalty, Karl was my step-cousin, he was a wonderful person that didn’t need to be murdered in such the way he was, i was horrified when this happened….really what is this world coming to, you can no longer walk the streets without the worry of who is walking out there with you!
