The other side

Re: Court blasts Prison 

Justice Clarke is justified on the smack-down of the Prison’s Commissioner. 

But there are other dynamics that might be in play here... does the prison have the resources to handle prisoners discontent? 

Like trained personnel, secure rooms, etc etc. If 70 prisoners want to go Christmas weekending but not entitled for the next 10 years, is the Commissioner resourced to handle a situation like this if it gets confrontational? Is his physical security protected? 

There are always two sides to a coin and we have to hear Commissioner’s side. Prison Commissioner can’t be doing this without a flagrant reason. 

Just saying.
