Rainsbrook G4S youth prison slammed by Ofsted report as children suffer ‘racist’, ‘degrading’ abuse from guards high on drugs
Children held at a prison run by the outsourcing giant G4S were subjected to “degrading treatment” and “racist comments” at the hands of staff who were under the influence of illegal drugs, a damning report by the education watchdog has revealed.
Ofsted inspectors who visited Rainsbrook Secure Training Centre in Northamptonshire earlier this year said staff had behaved “extremely inappropriately” towards the young people in their care, causing them “distress and humiliation”.
Frances Crook, the chief executive of the Howard League for Penal Reform, described the inspectors’ conclusions as “the worst report on a prison I have ever seen”. Six members of staff at the jail were sacked in the wake of the incidents.

Dignity is not sacred with this sham of a private corporation.
A private security company hiring ‘aggressive attitudes’ is a corporation of unclean and violent wisdom and this is placed within our community of vulnerable people’s.
This story highlights the dreadful interval of fierce hosting we can expect from G4S with a seemingly fanatical commitment to continue its agenda of brute force administration upon those they’re responsible for.
Clearly the staff are not trained adequately or are trained to be ‘too institutionalised’ and expect children to follow suit. Children are free spirits, it’s why we love watching them play. It’s squashed out of them and some kids don’t like this and rebel.
Children with added worries of life are troubled, the last ingredient is to be incarcerated with verbalised thugs, shunting uniform in your face, vaunting aloud their unjustly grievances and volleying ‘evil’ in print at them as a threat of punishment!
G4S is a corporation that cannot hide its morally depraved principles.
We’ve seen if before and we’ll see more foul ‘thug-ish’ expeditions from this private security firm.
