The Dim-Post

I’ll be there for you . . .

Via the Herald:

Justice Minister Judith Collins told Fairfax Media authorities could apply to the High Court to have sex offenders housed in a “flatting situation” within prison grounds, with offenders able to ask for a review.

You’re all too late. I’ve already applied to NZ On Air for a $450,000 reality show documentary, ‘New Zealand’s Got Rapists!’

  3. Get Mitre 10 involved and make them compete for the flats in order to live in them. The winners get a flat, the losers get castrated.

  4. The most disturbing thing about this post is that it caused me to realise that I can still quote the “Friends” theme music from memory. For your show, I’d suggest removing the line “Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s D.O.A.”.

  5. I’m sorry but keeping someone imprisoned for a crime they have not yet committed is not on. Why isn’t there a fuss about this?

  6. You are a bit late there. We have just sent to jail someone who allegedly threatened the prime Ministers life even though he seemed mentally unbalanced. Did not hear anyone complain about it

  7. Actually, this is a show for which the title “Big Brother” seems entirely apposite.

  9. Hmmm…..

    What would the challenges and prizes be?

  10. Do we get to vote them off? Where do the voted-off contestants go?

  11. I’ve long suggested that a Running Man/Hunger Games style game show would a) be good for the economy b) reduce the costs of running the prison system c) be great entertainment for the whole family. The winner would get to live on the Gold Coast.

  12. Challenges: eat noodles three times a day
    Prizes: replace one meal of noodles with weetbix

  14. “Flatting situation”.

  15. Gotta love the lead in
    “…told Fairfax Media authorities ”
    was that missing comma from the herald ironic or indicative.

  16. Jim Moragh should do a “Makeover”.
