How stupid could a newspaper be? Why didn't they just go ahead and give these journos a couple of pizzas to deliver him as well?
The only victim in this latest episode of Bailey's life...is Michael Choy's mother, Rita Croskery. This will never end for her, and is only made worse by the selfish actions of the media, in their attempts to sell more newspapers.
Unaccompanied journos a surprise - Yahoo!Xtra News
A crime watchdog is concerned that two female journalists were allowed to visit convicted killer Bailey Junior Kurariki unaccompanied.
It is alleged the 20-year-old, who is on parole, indecently assaulted the Herald on Sunday staff while they were at his home interviewing him. Police have received a formal complaint about the incident.
Kim Workman from the group Rethinking Crime and Punishment says he does not know if Kurariki is institutionalised but he has got to the point where he does not trust anyone. He is surprised the journalists did not have male escorts.
"They (the Herald management) must have assessed the risks and knowing his history with the paper, I can't understand why they didn't send at least one male along.
"You have to ask the question, are we contributing to this man's transformation or are we putting ourselves in a situation where we are potentially creating more victims, which is exactly what has happened."
Mr Workman says if the claims are true Kurariki is not known for this type of offending. He says the alleged incident shows a lack of insight into the way institutionalised offenders may react in certain circumstances.
The Herald says statements record that Kurariki exposed himself to the women, masturbated in front of them and groped them before they could escape the house. Kurariki's mother Lorraine West, was in the house, ill from the effects of treatment for cancer.
Kurariki was released from prison in May 2008 after being convicted of the manslaughter of pizza delivery man Michael Choy in 2002.
The Herald on Sunday is reviewing its procedures to ensure staff are not placed in unduly dangerous situations.
