No one enjoys hearing or seeing news that horrors your heart and makes your stomach turn.  But this news had to come out to force change.  If it isn’t news about Terrorist attacks it is news about abuse to children, the elderly or animals.  i fear for the fate of Humanity.

I and many others tuned into the Four Corners program on the ABC last night.  We were all witness to the most barbaric treatment that teenagers held in the Don Dale Detention in Northern Territory of Australia have been undergoing for well over 5 years.  In fact, we don’t even know at this stage how many years this has been hidden from the public eye and covered up by authorities.  I was deeply shocked at the images and the videos of detention correction officers beating, humiliating and in what anyone would consider complete violation of human rights. To even imagine an Adult suffering like this is bad enough but to children is hard to fathom .  Boys as young as 10 years of age have been thrown into this horrendous place and left in the hands of violent, perverted, evil correctional officers.  Appalling conditions of solitary confinement, beatings, tear gas and much worse. Thanks to the Four Corners investigation and exposing this atrocity there will now be a Royal Commission.  I hope all concerned go to Jail.  Click here to read the full article.  Some of the worst videos have been removed since last night,  it is enough to make your stomach turn so beware.
