Not monsters

Not monsters

There's an appeal for people to stop looking at the young men in prison as monsters.

It's coming from parliamentary secretary in the Ministry of Education, Dr Rommel Springer, who says society also needs to be more forgiving of these men when they complete their sentences.

Dr Springer was speaking during the post lunch session of the Senate Wednesday where they debated the Offences Against the Person Bill 2018.

He is also worried about the level of recidivism in the prison population.
