Police will never accept deaths-in-custody recommendations | Indymedia Australia

by ray jackson, president, indigenous social justice association

Why are deaths in custody rising? a very good article from ms. inga ting on the abject and sorry state of the national gaol systems and the horrific number of deaths in custody but especially nsw.

whilst pm howard shut down the legal requirement for the governments of the states and territories and their appropriate departments in 1998 because, according to him, the allocated $400 million had been spent. some of this money was spent on building new police stations, the macquarie fields station being but one example.

when it was opened i and some others were invited to come and see their jewel in the police crown. what they wanted was for us to be photographed outside the new station and giving it the rciadic tick of approval. they got the photo opportunity but not the approval.
