last week on abc four corners some shocking footage came out underlining the brutal torture of aboriginal teenagers, gassed by there oppressors then hosed down by force also a young aborigial teen put in a restraining chair with a spit hood placed over his head , this was like a seen from Guantanamo Bay but this was at Don Dale Youth Detention Centre in the northern territory as this shocking news come to light we also must remember that genocide of aboriginal people has been happening since colonisation in so-called australia and also aboriginal deaths in custody has increased since TheRoyal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody such as cases like miss dhu who had broken ribs, bleeding on the lungs and was in excruciating pain. Locked up for days without proper medical attention over $1000 in unpaid fines – at just 22 years of age she died in her cell as a result of her injuries. She begged for help mr ward who was placed in a police van causing death from a third degree burns in side the van
