This is without doubt the most deranged piece of news feature reporting I've ever seen. I didn't know anything about Brandon 'Chopper' Read before the film of his life, starring Eric Bana, was released in 2000 (a full 13 years before his death by cancer). There is some contention over how many of his stories are true, but it's undeniable he cut off his own ears to get out of a particular prison wing, so his other claims carry some weight. Anyway, watch it and stand agog.
Warning: There are strong racist comments in this report.
