Latest edition: September 2020
(Next edition 4th October)
Among our packed 32 pages in our September 2020 edition, this month we cover the new sentencing regimes of 2/3 handed out to the killers of PC Andrew Harper – and we ask whether in every case of manslaughter the sentence should be 20 years because the victim was a police officer? We cover the case of the prison officer jailed for stuffing her knickers with drugs, and the police officer jailed for online child porn – and the prison officer who avoided jail downloading child abuse images. We ask why HMP Standford Hill still has no on site kitchen, how a prisoner was injured when a prison van flipped over in Sussex, how three Scottish prisoners were jailed for 19 years for the manslaughter of a fellow prisoner and much more besides.
Naming Names Policy: Converse is extremely popular because we cover cases where police and prison officers are convicted and often jailed for crimes they have spent their career locking others up for – and we cover those cases where prisoners have been convicted of attacking prison staff too. But in neither case do we name or identify them. Naming public officials opens them up to the risk of attack and we believe people are sent to prison as punishment and not for it. Secondly we do not name prisoners convicted of staff assaults, only highlighting the sentences they receive; because to name them can provide a perverse badge of honour that we do not believe they are entitled to wear.
