The Herald reports:
Gang tensions are believed to have sparked the on-going prison riot at Spring Hill jail south of Auckland, where inmates are setting fires and damaging cells.
Greens say double bunking and smoking ban to blame for heightened tensions in prisons.
This would be hilarious, if it were not so tragic. The smoking ban by the way has been in place for two years, and the double bunking for three years.
Yet the Greens have divined they are to blame for the riot!
Nothing to do with the gangs. For gang members are just victims of society, as are those poor prisoners who can’t smoke and have single cells.
Imagine the fun with a Green Minister of Corrections!
