He's like the Energizer Bunny...

Graeme Burton does not seem to give up no matter what... last night whilst being transferred from hospital to prison he attacked a guard who was in the back with him, thus he was re-admitted into the Emeregency Department and had his wounds checked.

This prompted extreme security measures with a combination of armed offenders squad members, detectives and dog handlers surrounding all hospital entrances, with the fear being Burton may have someone on the outside trying to help him escape... AGAIN!!!

I am not a fan of the prison system, and am for prisoners being counselled and hopefully changing their ways... unfortunately I think Burton is a lost cause and his new sentence should be a life sentence with a long LONG time before he is allowed up for parole again... maybe it could be a new record. I would like it that he will either be an extremely old man or dead before he is eligible.

They should have shot him in the head.

Well he hasn't got any incentive to be anything other than an uncontrollable psycho. If the wingnuts get there way the jails would be full of thousands of people in that position and presumably a large chunk of the population involved guarding them.

I do think that such people should be left with a large jar of valiums in their cell at all times though - just in case they want to put themselves and everyone they meet out of their msiery.

Agreed Stef. Why waste taxpayers money keeping him in a lovely cell with better conditions than others outside jail. He won't change.

I reckon put him in with all the other violent criminals and throw away the key. Let them kill each other. None of the prisoners rights nonsense!

Or we could lock him in a cell with a whole bunch of wingnuts. They all reckon their soooo hard so it'd be fun so see how long they last before he chews their leg off or whatever.

Actually, thinking about it that's a bum idea. They'd sign him up to be #7 on the ACT list or something.

Yeah right Rich. What makes you think ACT would accept him? At last count the Labour caucus would have more use for him!
