Hey there average NZer – angry about a prisoner being paid $10 000 in compensation?
Convicted murderer awarded $10k for human rights breach
A convicted murderer has received a $10,000 government payout after he was held too long in solitary confinement at an Auckland prison.
…want to know how you can not get angry about paying prisoners compensation? Why how about ensuring that our corrections industry don’t torture NZ prisoners?
John Vogel has been awarded the payout after the UN Committee Against Torture ruled his rights were breached after he was confined to a cell for 21 days – six days longer than legally allowed.
…I love how this had to go to the UN to get paid out because the NZ Prison Industry was too embarrassed by their torture of this prisoner to do the right thing and just compensate him.
Don’t be the kind of fuckwit who now screams ‘what about his victims’, that’s the sort of counter claim an unthinking dickhead who has been caught out being an unthinking dickhead would scramble to attempt.
You can’t torture prisoners, and if you do torture prisoners, you have to compensate them. I appreciate this is a difficult thing for NZers who have been brainwashed by mainstream media crime porn which is framed in a way to always make you angry, but it’s real simple folks.
No torture = no compensation.
Come on sleepy hobbits, even we can get this one!
