Man sick of playing Xbox on home detention asks for jail

#1
Thought this was hilarious:
A Whangarei man who was "sick of playing Xbox" while on home detention has been granted his wish to serve the rest of his sentence in jail.

Senior Constable Paul Nicholas of Whangarei police said the Hikurangi man rang police on Tuesday to say he was bored serving home detention, was sick of playing Xbox and would rather serve the rest of his sentence behind bars.

Mr Nicholas said the 19-year-old had already served 10 months of an 11-month home detention term and with one month to go "had run out of Xbox games to play".

The man told police he was about to breach home detention if he wasn't picked up and taken to jail.

The man got his wish and is now in Ngawha Prison.

This makes me wonder, will law enforcement agencies adopt the Xbone for these types of prisoners in order to keep an eye on them with Kinect?

New Zealander here. If his sentence was only home detention, he would actually get a decent deal in one of the lower security prisons. He'll at least have space to move around, people to talk to, all of his meals cooked for him, and various job-type rehabilitation programmes to take part in.

He'll at least have space to move around, people to talk to, get brutally ass raped, all of his meals cooked for him, suffer mouth rape, and various job-type rehabilitation programmes to take part in.
Fixed.

It may have been because he had no one to socialize with. He may have been totally / mostly isolated. At in jail you're sometimes placed into a dorm with a bunch of other people.

Seriously? This guy needs to read a book or start watching anime or something. Go start One Piece and you'll gladly serve your sentence another month just to finish it.
