Cruel And Unusual

The ABC website has just reported that a prisoner in Mobilong prison in South Australia has got himself into trouble for making this gun out of matchsticks, metal bits from around a pencil eraser, one rubber band and paint:


And how was the prisoner punished?  Was he put into solitary confinement?  Waterboarded?  Made to work extra hours in the laundry, despite the ever-present risk of someone evil burning his crafty fingers in the ironing press?  Had his sentence extended?

No.  He has been "banned from any type of craft activity."

Harsh.

  1. Ahhh... I'm sure that warm feeling is reassurance. Makes it all worthwhile doesn't it? Excuse me while I go and grind my teeth.
