Another Name Suppression Outrage

The mother of a slain prison guard is furious that the inmate accused of killing him has been granted name suppression.

United States-born Jason Palmer, 33, was six months into the job when he was allegedly punched to the floor by a high-risk prisoner at Waikato’s medium-security Spring Hill Prison in May. The father-of-two suffered irreversible brain damage and later died.

Speaking from the United States, Ada Palmer slammed the New Zealand judiciary for giving her son’s accused killer anonymity.

“Shhhhhh. His name is suppressed so let’s not talk about it right?” she said. “I do not know his name yet [my son is dead].

“Is he getting his tea served in a timely manner? Are all his needs being met? I would not want his days to be disrupted or, God forbid, his life!”

It is an outrage that a convicted criminal is hiding while he is still in prison. There is absolutely no reason for his name suppression.

All the cons know who he is, I know who he is, it took me a phone call and a wait of 15 minutes. Meanwhile the little shit who did it gets what he wanted, transferred to his new gang’s jail, a patch, and looked after by the gang that ordered the hit. Except the authorities won’t tell you that. They are just putting their heads in the sand and calling this a terrible accident.

Its bullshit and the excuses are about as effective as a half sucked throatie.

Can someone please point Mrs Palmer to some Interesting Names?
