The Media Party likes to agitate…especially on behalf of criminals, and illegal immigrants and of course there is their pimping of the poor.
It’s what they do…campaign.
Now they have taken up the cause of a bad bastard currently rotting in jail where he actually really deserves to be until he dies.
An extremely robust release plan will be needed if New Zealand’s longest serving prisoner is ever released from jail, according to the Parole Board.
Alfred Thomas Vincent, 77, has spent a record-breaking 47 years behind bars after he was sentenced to preventive detention for sexual offending against five boys in Canterbury.
On Tuesday morning, the board released its reasons why it had declined the recidivist child sex offender’s latest bid for parole.
He became eligible for release four decades ago, but had been repeatedly turned down by the Parole Board since then.
“There has also been a noticeable deterioration in Mr Vincent’s understanding of what is going on around him, and his offending. However, his risk of sexual re-offending remains,” the board’s latest decision said.
“Despite his advanced years, he is said to exhibit a strong and persistent pattern of highly sexualised interest and behaviour. If anything, he has become more disinhibited. But he is not amenable to treatment.”
He had attended the Kia Marama sex offenders course four times during his prison stint and completed it once.
“There is no question of a further referral,” the board said.
