It’s tragic the way our ‘civilised’ societies treat children in care, whether in the care of a religious or government institution. We’re currently investigating the brutal restraining techniques used in UK Young Offenders Institutions and Childcare homes.
Bill Maloney and Pie ‘n’ Mash Films have been working on a documentary with 22 men who were all sexually abused by senior prison office ‘Neville Husband’ back in the 70s and who are now in the process of taking the Home Office to court.
We also discovered that the youngest child in English custody Adam Rickwood (14) committed suicide at the same detention centre only four years ago.
We have interviews with Adam’s family who do not believe he committed suicide and with four of the men who were abused back in the 70s at the same centre. Ligatures and torture techniques were used!
If we all pull together we CAN make a difference.
