    Well I did as suggested...... seems to me a combination of problems at the prison. I'm not in corrections so I can only summize. My big beef about privately run prisons is that they should not exist period.

    Privately run prisons are fine - so long as the ones they put in them are those that came up with the idea to line their pockets in the first place.

    Yeah, could be. What I'm really saying is that your top management will hang you put to dry, They just stay away from HMP Birmingham any way they can but took the profits. Do Not Trust. If your canny aussie feminist bitch needed the warning.


    Other thing I have to say is check out the Milgram experiments. You are absolutely in their area of significance. Reinforce your canny aussie feminist HUMANIST bitch.


    (But yeah, there are real bastards out there)
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    I hear ya..... unfortunetly all security firms are like that. Low pay means expendable. My last job payed extremely well for any industry but that's a different kettle of fish because that particular company asks a lot of it's employees.

    I've noticed a lot of crime that we simply didn't have before private prisons....and then comes the mandatory sentencing. Coincidence? Me thinks not. And it's a common thought.

    """Between about 8:00am and 9:00am they amble into the classroom at Aquinas College, in the Melbourne suburb of Ringwood. Chris Varney, founder of the I CAN Network, greets each student as they arrive for their fortnightly mentoring session. By the time the class starts, about 15 Mutants have assembled. If you're worried by the name, don't fret — they chose it themselves. "I like the name The Mutants I think because of how it's just a quirky name that kind of expresses ourselves in a way that everyone can take it as a joke," Year 10 student Bastian Phillips explained. "Not actually think, oh we're mutants in a bad way, but in a good way. "I like that feeling of, you can feel like you're actually a part of something." Like many of The Mutants, 14-year-old Sophie Lee says being part of the mentoring program has made her more confident. "I'm not afraid to tell people that I've got autism," she said. "It shouldn't make a difference, in my books it doesn't, so why should it in theirs?" The hour-long session is a mix of games, group activities and talks. Sophie is up this week and tells the class of her love of horses and volunteering work on camps for kids. "If I have had a tough week like at school or something I like to go there and that's my time to basically forget the world," she said. Then it's Andre Painter's turn to give a talk on his chosen subject of tennis. He struggles to find the words sometimes, looks painfully shy, but appears to enjoy his moment in the limelight. Chris keeps a series of questions going, to keep Andre talking. They seem random, but are often targeted at the kind of issues many of these kids struggle with, such as being overly focused on one thing or having difficulty managing anxiety and anger. "Tennis is a real mind game. How do you keep it together on court?" Chris asks. "Well, I try and concentrate not just about winning," Andre respond Watching on, it seems as though the class is not that interested, but later two boys tell me Andre's talk was their favourite element of the session. That's a big call, because there is also a hugely popular game of wink murder, and another activity, where groups are given 10 minutes to build the tallest tower they can from balloons and sticky tape. The winning structure is dubbed "Trump Tower", but there are some question marks over whether that team followed correct procedures. Best not to interpret too much into that. Again it seems on the surface a harmless bit of fun, but in subtle ways these kids are learning to work together in teams, to communicate and problem-solve. Tom Freeman, a Year 10 student, who along with autism has language difficulties, is chosen as the spokesperson for his team. "Because of I CAN, … I'm twice more confident with talking to people and socialising with people," he said. Tom, like many of the kids in this group, is being encouraged to wear his autism with pride. "What's good about being on the Aspergers and autism spectrum is that you have a good memory and you have special interests and special talents," Tom says. "I have a good memory and I can remember the AFL and NRL and FIFA World Cup sporting winners and champions that came first and second and who come in the grand final and stuff like that." The I CAN Network now runs mentoring sessions in about 30 schools in Victoria, Queensland and Tasmania. Chris Varney has what he calls a "sprinkling" of autism and says that as a child he suffered from anxiety, he had a "forensic focus" and felt "out of sync with the norm". He completed a law degree, but then decided to change tack. "I was sick and tired of seeing kids and teenagers falling through the cracks and there were far too many people I was meeting on the autism spectrum who were limiting themselves or made to feel limited by their environment and I was very frustrated," he said. "I thought we don't have this label for people to say, 'well, you can't do things'. You have it so that you can say, 'you can'.""""
