A long drop off a short rope, Ctd

Stuff.co.nz

Honestly I don’t know why we don;t just have wobbly stools, eye bolts int he ceiling and 6 feet of rope installed in the cells of pedophiles….then play endless cycles of Talk Talk at them till they solve all their problems with a long drop off a short rope:

A paedophile already serving preventive detention was jailed again today and the 64-year-old may never be released from prison.

A woman now in her 40s is the latest victim of Warren Kenneth Johnston, who had admitted offending in Alexandra during the 1970s and 1980s.

The woman was in the High Court in Christchurch to tell him about the effects he had on her life and to see him jailed for three years by Justice Graham Lang.

The sentence will effectively lengthen Johnston’s preventive detention by a year because it will stop him being considered by the Parole Board for that period.

However, he may never be released, even though he has already served 15 years since preventive detention was imposed in the High Court in Wellington in 1997.

He has done the Kia Marama programme for sex offenders twice, during successive jail sentences.

He did not impress with his performance the first time around, soon after the programme began about 1990, and he continued to offend.

He had “a little more success” on a later course, Justice Lang noted, but a psychological report prepared for today’s sentencing pointed to continuing difficulties.

He said: “It is clear from the report from the psychologist that you have a considerable way to go before the parole authorities can feel confident in releasing you back into the community. It may be, as your counsel says, that you are never released.”

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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