Guest Speaker: Henry


Many of us have seen Hollywood movies or read stories about prison life. But how closely does that portrayal match reality. To answer that question (and maybe a few others, if time permits) I have a special guest who has intimate knowledge of the system spanning two decades and first-hand knowledge of five of the eight South Australian prisons. We want to shine a light on what it is really like from two perspectives, the prisoner in custody and a family member of the prisoner.

People talk about prisons (& their inmates) being the incubators of criminal behaviour but that is over simplistic & ignores the push-pull forces in play.
Unjustified brutality by the system and terrible role modelling by too many of its agents are also potent drivers towards avoidable anger, resentment, antisocial attitudes and criminal behaviour.
