The reports that were initially put out to the press were saying that the prisoner had been attacked.
“Prison staff do not attack prisoners. We feel that the Ministry of Justice missed an opportunity to correct false reporting of events at Belmarsh.”
He said that, although restraint techniques were designed to minimise injuries to staff and prisoners, “sometimes there are unforeseen consequences in any violent incident”.
Earlier, he had said: “We are absolutely confident, having spoken to our members, that they will have been found to have done absolutely nothing wrong at all.
Two wrongs do not make a right- However it is only him claiming it so I remain to be convinced he was assaultedPosted 4 years agocobrakaiSubscriber
I want to believe that prison officers will apply the same procedures to all prisoners, regardless of their notoriety. If this is the case, I have nothing but respect for them.
That’s why I couldn’t do their job. I’d go right through this @$&t like a dose of the shits.Posted 4 years ago
He’s barely half as gullible and easily led as Kaeaseaeasaae was
It’s funny how myths develop. Kaesae had some rather unusual opinions, to say the least, but he never struck me as gullible. A great deal of what he said actually warranted some serious consideration imo**. And he triggered off a few fairly interesting debates, again imo. I can’t really say the same about ickehoneyicke.
**As an example kaesae challenged the claim made by the Western media that the opposition in Syria were necessarily the good guys, calling them terrorists. Today even David Cameron appears to agree with kaesae and no longer wants to arm them.Posted 4 years agoesselgruntfuttockMember
he was probably bending over to pick up the soap, and slipped forward, and those 5 prison officers just tried to help him up…………..
5 screws in a shower with 1 prisoner? Well there’s not much room to maneuver in those places i suppose. 😉
What could have happened is this, Mr Adebolajo was showing aggression &/or not complying with officers orders/prison rules, officers deem it necessary to apply control & restraint (which should be a)necessary & b)proportionate to the threat) The officer who’s trying to control Mr A’s head (so he doesn’t get injured/can hear staff speaking to him/can breathe) fails to ensure that as Mr A is lowered to the ground in a safe manner, that Mr A’s face doesn’t SLAM into the floor (thats a big no-no see) it could all be on camera too.Posted 4 years ago
Shit happens in the job, in fact anything can happen.konabunnyMember
Not clear who you’re talking about there, Hora.
Two wrongs don’t make a right, but I’d have to try really hard to care at all about what happens to him.
All the time and effort going into investigating this could be better spent I’m sure.
I don’t think it could. If you let people get away with battering people because we don’t like the victims, the batterers will take that as carte blanche to batter other people; similarly, if you allow serious allegations to go unchallenged, you create distrust in the justice system and innocent accused are not vindicated.Posted 4 years ago
Perhaps I am but a naive and foolish young thing, but could it be there is more to this story than is readily portrayed in this age of D notices and secret courts (in the interest of national security of course old boy)??Posted 4 years ago

You offer that as if it is a startlingly new revelation that hasn’t already been given extensive media coverage.
Or are you darkly suggesting that MI5 did in fact recruit Adebolajo, and that he carried out the alleged murder under the instructions of his MI5 handler ?Posted 4 years ago
