Rejected petition Investigate systemic racism & inequalities within the prison service staff

There have been countless numbers of incidences & occurrences of systemic racism within the prison service staff towards inmates as well as other members of staff. This is unacceptable in this day & age, especially for a public sector that is based on reform, education & reintegration into community

More details

The government & parliament must investigate & take action before the issue of racism comes to a head and breaking point without the prison service staff. The government & parliament must use this to set an example & show that racism in any form & in any environment is completely unacceptable & will not be tolerated. The government & parliament has to make a stand with the BAME community and show it’s stance and strength towards racism; that any form of racism is a violation of human rights
