Even prisons that incarcerate children are violent.

In the UK, following a five year legal battle families have successfully (under Freedom of Information Act) had released a document titled ‘Physical Control in Care’. It is a manual for private prisons, authorising staff to:

– “Use an inverted knuckle into the trainee’s sternum and drive inward and upward.”
– “Continue to carry alternate elbow strikes to the young person’s ribs until a release is achieved.”
– “Drive straight fingers into the young person’s face, and then quickly drive the straightened fingers of the same hand downwards into the young person’s groin area.”

Or in other words, authorised child abuse. (Story)
