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.Tags: New Zealand
