Why are prisoners so gay these days?
He’s suing Corrections for hurty feelings because the bald nonce had his rug taken from him.
Convicted sex offender and murderer Phillip John Smith is suing the Department of Corrections over the hairpiece he wore in his South American escape.
Smith, who is serving 33 months in Auckland Prison for his 2014 escape while on temporary release, claims that Corrections’ failure to return his hairpiece violates his human rights.
In November 2014, Smith flew to South America using an illegally obtained passport. He was caught in Brazil nine days later.
Smith’s lawyer Tony Ellis said on Wednesday that since his client returned to prison Corrections had refused to explain why it wouldn’t give Smith back his hairpiece.
“He got permission to wear a hairpiece early 2013, but when he came back [to prison] they confiscated it,” Ellis said.
Despite Smith’s appeal to the Ombudsman over Corrections’ actions being dismissed, Smith believed the confiscation was “unfair and doesn’t take into account his loss of dignity”, Ellis said.
“A hairpiece isn’t dangerous, [Corrections] approved it and then removed it without reason.”
Smith’s hairpiece claim will be heard in Auckland High Court in March, 2017.
Boo effing Hoo, snowflake.
Looks like Generation Snowflake has infested prison too.
Tell you what, he can have his syrup back when his victims get their lives back.
