Good job, stop in prison a bit longer

The Media party loves to promote Arthur Taylor.

They are crying rivers of tears on his behalf because the Parole Board has asked him to stop in prison a bit longer.

The Parole Board deems high profile and long serving inmate Arthur Taylor too dangerous for early release, a report released today has revealed.  

The Herald revealed last week that parole had been denied and that Taylor was set to take the board to the High Court for a judicial review.

He claims the decision to deny him an early release was biased and is alleging “improper procedure”.

A source close to Taylor today confirmed the inmate would file his application for a review as soon as possible.

Taylor has spent almost 40 years of his life behind bars.

The 60-year-old is currently serving a sentence of 17 years and six months for serious violent and drug-related offending.

Last week he appeared before the board for the 18th time.

He will not be seen again until March 2018.

They left off quite a few of his crimes. Radio NZ has a better list:

After spending 38 of the last 44 years in prison, amassing 152 convictions along the way for fraud, burglary, aggravated robbery, kidnapping, firearms offences, drugs offences and escaping from custody.

He is a menace to society, there is a reason he is in Paremoremo. He’s violent and dangerous. Best he stops there for a few more years.
