UK: Major Young Offenders Institution Compared to Lord of the Flies
"Frances Crook, chief executive of the Howard League for Penal Reform, said: "This prison is dangerous for teenagers and this sounds more like an extract from William Golding's Lord of the Flies than a report on an institution that is meant to help young people turn their lives around." She challenged the government to "take these young people out of such a toxic environment before more of them die, or take responsibility for the consequences."
