Horrifying place.

I am angry that prisoners behave like that and ihope there are tough penalties.

The Strangeways one was fascinating , this is scary. The behaviour is just shocking.

Started watching it as I used to live near there but it was so appalling I have turned over to watch the penguins - much more civilised! smile

This is so scary and shocking.
The young black guy is shocking.

Makett I have met guys like him before. Vile. Pity them and wonder.how they got to be that way.

Three new inmates have taken a prisoner hostage!

KenDoddsDadsDog Mon 18-Feb-13 21:17:39

I don't know much about prison but do the officers have less 'power' in a YOI?

I am as not far from where I live and one of my DD2's mums works there. Watching with DD2 (nearly 12) and she said 'I want to be one of those'! I think she meant prison warder confused

Just sat here like shock

It was Caspian the newbie. Attention seeker

There isn't even a David Charlton on this series

This is making me feel worse about my thread about a friend and a violent man

SoleSource Mon 18-Feb-13 21:22:19

David Charlton, who he? smile

He was on strangeways I think?
That was a shocking insight too

SoleSource Mon 18-Feb-13 21:25:11

Oh I missed Strangeways documentary sad

It was very good, i think it might have been left up on the itv player

Not watching it, but currently considering deleting a friend on Facebook due to the frequent updates about how her DH is giving up 2/3 of his salary to give these people a pool table and an education... etc etc

It's frightening isn't it? The sheer rage and simmering violence. I can't imagine working in that environment.

How do these young men become so damaged? sad

Tincle- can you ask her if she'd prefer them living on her street please wink

In some ways I am quite glad I didn't complete my application to teach in a YOI but in others I think I would do far better good there than in my current employment.

ggirl Mon 18-Feb-13 21:32:19

sidge -exactly what I was thinking..what makes them so damaged..I picture them as little boys in big bodies

KenDoddsDadsDog Mon 18-Feb-13 21:32:23

David Charlton was a very disturbed man (he went to school with some of my friends) but provided some TV Gold.
"Good morning David how are you?"
"Fuck off"

It's awful, the levels of violence involved. It's quite frightening. sad

How did he manage to have a child? He is terrifying

its scary that these boys are fathers, hopefully the next generation will not follow in their footsteps, but I fear they will sad
