  1. People such as Trevor will never recieve the care and attention they need as long as the current and long entrenched attitude and disinterest on the part of Corrections is permitted to continue.

    The Corrections mentality is dominated by an obsession to keep budgets down and forget about people, until such time as they are forced to confront the consequences of their neglect.

    The same mentality exists as much within the ranks of probation as it does the stash and bash brigade in the prisons. Access to therapy, counselling and psychologists is scarce and budget driven rather than needs driven.

    Some of the drivel that Corrections psychologists come out with in the few reports they do manage to write, is often so out of touch with the real world as to be frightening and even dangerous.

    It is time to get rid of some of the attitudes that exist within the ranks of Corrections management and rebuild the system from the ground up. It is time to get rid of the Garth McVicar’s of this world who use the banner of Sensible Sentencing as a channel for their small personality egos.
