ZenTiger End of Month Clearance Sale at Rimutaka Prison

Pick up a couple of prisoners at the Rimutaka Prison Sale.
Rapists at 10% off and thieves are a steal at $300 each.
Buy 5 pedophiles and get one free
(offer not available to families with dogs).
Sale ends Sunday. Everything MUST go!

Chief Justice Dame Sian Elias has pointed out that the prisons are a wee bit full, and has come up with a fantastic idea to reduce overcrowding. Said the Chief Justice:

"We could billet Graeme Burton at my place. I have a spare room. Indeed, depending upon how it goes with Clayton Weatherston, I could probably fit him in the study next to my kitchen knives."

If that doesn't sort the problem, I predict the next 50 cases I try every-one will be INNOCENT. So if you want to bludgeon your attacker to death in self defence, now's the time to do it!

What a great idea Chief Justice.

Hat tip to Oswald: What colour is the sky on your planet?

A warning from Ozy Mandias Where will not correcting children criminals take us?

Update: I now have a copy of her speech and respond in a separate post: No justice is no justice at all. In the meantime, more commentary here from Adam Smith of an Inquiring Mind: Crime and Punishment

Great post.
But can your house provide the level of comfort that most inmates have nowadays????

Not mine, but I'm sure the Chief Justice has reasonably comfortable digs.
