hassel manages western australia's 17 prisons and youth detention center every day in any prison is a you know if i live in a sense because we have to look after people and we make the system a cipher as we possibly can but sometimes you know if somebody is very very determined they will actually type their own life. and that's incredibly side you know and everybody wants to understand why the happens. in response to the deaths he now leads a task force that i'm still prevent suicide in giles i want the task force to my classes to my site and humane as possible and to look at those things that we can do to ensure that so we have the rules and procedures just one compartment taken away and points where people my hunger and selves is another. thing that will absolutely look out i'll be locking up people who actually need better social support not being blocked or white long periods of time but i think that's
a really good question this is probably about 800 prisoners in the state system at the moment with a dog has mental health problem. some of those prisoners should be enough and have a mental health facility you know they shouldn't shy wife the fact that we haven't got the option of them on the. policy changes the point bring stanley back his mother wants better medical treatment and mental health support in giles. i'm just worried about those young boys you know. i really worry for their mental state. i mean what. thinking what the future. good night. in a final message to the prisons both those at the funeral and those watching by video link from inside child the past to connie spears. i want to tell you one

dates back to the hundreds the aboriginal paperwork from the point of contact with the colonists were subjected to a very cruel incarceration. men from all around the state were rounded out whenever they resisted side laws around. all slavery. today indigenous incarceration rights continue to increase between 2004 and 24 tane the number of aboriginal prisoners nationally rose by percent i accept that there are too many aboriginal people in prison i think we have to are not written incredibly complex problem to resolve is the system prices are i don't think so then what we're dealing with is as i've said a group of people emerging from coal mines action and we have to be honest about
except. aboriginal people make up just 4 percent of western australia population but account the 30 non percent of adult prisons. experts blame the state's mandatory sentencing laws which impose minimum prison terms and don't allow judge's discretion to look at offenders circumstances where sinister i am is a mother of a which i was. i see people going into prisons people coming out the side people going in and out in and out when the stock was stopped. for decades a digital strategy and have taken to the straits protesting discrimination in the criminal justice system with little success. but in 2020 when police brutality and black lives matter rallies a rap today in the u.s. it really ignited protests across a struggling. people really are very angry that i wish i had lost still dying in
custody and that rice is a man rice is following this is still a big issue here that people are losing their lives i think black lives matter has been a white hot coal to the west and a wide in situations to cya we're taking this very seriously and you need to turn. raising the age of criminal responsibility has also emerged as one of the law broader issues of this trial is protest movement. aberrational children as young as 10 years old can be to time and. this is one of the last ice age is of criminal responsibility in the world and a number of un bodies have come down very hard on this trial and told them that 4 tane is the minimum age of communal responsibility they simply not listening. this 13 year old boy who we'll call adam has already been to western australia's only use prison banks here heal the tensions and when i 1st went to try to act off
. to the awful luck. he was 1st in casa righted last year and has already served 12 short sentences the patriots fans yankees or to tom or his keys and also a new dollars shot so he can walk by city here and lot and clear today. say keys keys in case to shaken a shaken. he said some of the kids will like 10 and 11 and you were 12. were old the kids. treated fairly and then. you know early. what things did you say that you think a kid should be subjected to. a lot of 10 year olds going bashfulness 16 year olds. at soccer we. you saw that happen
yeah if you act black. you have china feeling rough 1st thing and you feel you can stand i have on you going to get bashed or mobile in there but if you act like just a quiet person then i turn off and. they're just you won't get picked on us and our slayer line. adam grew up in a country town in the caribbean grandmother his parents were heavy drug users who both killed themselves by the time he was 10. soon after adam began smoking marijuana and sniffing petrol. why would you type drugs from such a young age or 9 o'clock am asylum on that diet for attacking jocks so i just for what i'd gotten taken drugs and i'm never going to see him again so why don't i just like you know take john's safe algar. this pain led him to spiral out of control down
a path of homelessness and petty. 1 may just may it's no thing just me i was hungry. one and she didn't take me back to ass to tell me the sky. so yeah i just do what we're made to don't get paid here started stealing since being released from youth detention adam has returned to school and oath or he's placed him in the custody of he's 18 year old brother who we'll call marco a strange for much of their childhoods both boys have spent most of their lives in banksia heal or on the streets and lost and down to the point where i had to lock still offer homeless person myself i was harmless i was still of other. just forelock whatever was in the bag. i got myself locked up i just went on like smashed the window and so might afford
a place to come i got locked up so i could have better. fade because i was pretty caught up in the city so we you know we had why banks here with a price in some ways of safety because you had some farms when you there's nothing and you got an author who was a courier for fate to literally get most of us to just suck and have a shower or get proper socks come off it was a in the science of 4 wow mark who was 14 when he 1st entered banksy he'll detention center doesn't teach anyone a lesson doesn't really help it just puts you on and then there's expect you to sit there so the time's up and then you come out and you're supposed to be a better person. yeah just bad. they've got to know with people coming from what i do for that i don't do that i just see that you down wrong as chuck you
