Australia's "Abu Ghraib"-Like Torture of Jailed Children Captured in "Chilling" TV Footage

Nika Knight, staff writer

Footage from an ABC investigation revealed juvenile detention center guards in Australia's Northern Territory shackling, hooding, taunting, and teargassing detained children—as well as leaving them in solitary confinement for extended periods of time.

Something has gone very wrong with and when adults think and do resort to behaviours like this.
Very wrong.
No way this is secluded to only Australia either IMO.

Australia has had experience in this before - Its tragic and disturbing that Australia apparently learned nothing from their maltreatment and genocide of aboriginal people....children forcibly removed from their families to become "civilized"..........

Will they also say "sorry" to these victims of depraved indifference?

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/1999/09/geno-s07.html
"genocidal practices perpetrated against Australian Aborigines were the outcome of policies adopted and implemented by all Australian governments from British settlement in 1788 until the present" - "“stolen generations” legal actions (were) brought against the Commonwealth and State governments by Aborigines who (as children) were forcibly removed from their families"

"mistreatment"? How about genocide and extermination!
