Quite sickening to read of two Rimutaka prison guards badly beaten up by prisoners. It seems the poor wee prisoners were upset by random searches for contraband.
The article doesn’t say anything about what will happen to the five prisoners who took part. Here’s my list of suggestions:
- Automatic transfer from Rimutaka to a maximum security prison
- Automatic loss of parole eligibility
- Prosecution for the assault with the additional sentence to be added onto the original sentences they are serving
