Who Uses Prisons for What?

According to the Greens, Angela Davis says: Prisons, she said, are a dumping ground for people, as a means of control and maintenance of economic domination and conceptually, as a way of disposing of the unacceptable face of capitalist society – the other side of the affluent coin. I was reading that, and I remembered… Continue reading Who Uses Prisons for What?

New Investigate Revelations

Ian Wishart is no fool. It was quite clear to anyone who actually bothered to read his article on police corruption that he had plenty more material, just in case the first lot was ignored. So today, just as I suspected, he has released more allegations. I haven’t read them yet, but I have no… Continue reading New Investigate Revelations

The Place of the Courts

Stop The ACLU has a great post on the place of courts in the legal process. Recently, the Supreme Court ruled that a female employee who sued for what seemed to be obvious discrimination in her wages could not bring suit because she took longer than the statutory 180 days to bring the complaint.

The biggest story of the day is of course the “spy” employed by a security company working for Solid Energy. Firstly, the company who hired this kid are idiots. He was not “acting” as an enthusiastic member – he was one already! What were they thinking?!? Look. If you’re going to get a good spy,… Continue reading Spying on Idiots

Police 10/7

So everyone’s upset about this comment: But mainstream programmes also had a Maori presence, Mr Ellis said. “Dream Home, Shortland Street, Ten Years Younger, Intrepid Journeys, Location Location, Animal House, Game of Two Halves, Police Ten-7, Charm School, Lost Children, I could go on. There’s a large number,” he said. Pita Sharples says: Dr Sharples… Continue reading Police 10/7

Paris Gets “Good Behaviour”

Paris has had her sentence halved for “Good Behavior“, even before the sentence starts. I’d have thought it was bad behavior that got her there in the first place! If I were the judge, I’d find whoever made that decision and have them up for contempt of court. Ridiculous.
