Another Corrections fuck up

Corrections is in the news again, and again for all the wrong reasons.

Four months after the Government promised an overhaul of prisoner transports, the inmate suffered a suspected broken jaw in a prolonged attack during a 30-minute journey yesterday.

The victim – who had asked to be segregated for his own protection – was put in a cage with four others who assaulted him during the drive from Auckland Central Remand Prison to Waitakere District Court.

Have they learned nothing from the Liam Ashley tragedy. It seems not.

Damien O'Connor should just go and take the Barry Matthews with him as they both clearly have no idea at all about their department.

Sheriff Joe should be hired immediately at whatever he names as his salary.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
